Have you had your Joy Juice today? Drinking it faithfully is to key to abundant JOY!
ABUNDANCE----what does that word mean to you? When I hear the word, I immediately think of a huge amount of something! Sometimes we think we have an abundance of WORK! Many days there is an abundance of laundry and housework…especially for those with young families. At certain times of the year, we experience an abundance of yard work. Are you ever overwhelmed by an abundance of bills?!!!!!
Today let’s think of abundance in the manner that Jesus taught about in the Gospel of John. Remember the passage we mentioned yesterday in John 10:10? “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” This kind of abundance is a good thing….a realllllly good thing!
Bruce Wilkinson (in The Prayer of Jabez Devotional) writes that “the secret to TRUE abundance is to want what God wants.” That means that we love God so much that we put aside our desires and trust that He knows what is best for us. He wants us to bring our needs and desires before Him, but when we do so, we need to be content with His answer and His provision.
Abundant life in Christ is living every moment soaking up His love, His will and His direction. It is then that we will be filled with ABUNDANT JOY!
Drink in the joy of the Lord every day, trusting God to bless you with true abundance!
