The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I AM COME THAT YOU MAY HAVE LIFE ,AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY( John 10:10)
Are you having an ABUNDANTLY Life?
If you are, or if you are not, today is a new day, and God wants to give you more.
More peace, More Joy, More Love; whatever you need just put more in front of it, because that is the kind of God we serve.
A God that does not give you not enough, or just enough, but more than enough.
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full, pressed down, shaken together; to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap.
Can you say more.( Luke 6:38).
What God has for you is for you; but you must first unlock the door, and the key is found in Hebrews 11:6 ‘ But without faith it is impossible to please God: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
To receive your reward from God you must seek Him, not half way but with all your heart mind and soul.
A reward is something given or received in return; you have to do something to get the reward.
God wants to give you more, but we have to seek Him.
What does seeking God mean? I am so glad you ask !
What it means is to get into Gods presence, worship Him ,Praise Him , fellowship with one another, go help someone, Pray ,Fast.
We chase everything trying to be happy looking for love in all the wrong places.
We must become God chasers, not people and things chasers, In the book of Matthew 6:33 ” But seek ye first the kingdom of God ,and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
He was not talking about food, clothes or shelter that is a given.
He said He would add to your basic needs , He will blow your mind, give you the desires of your heart.
He said no good thing He would hold back from you if you just seek Him.
What are you asking God for?
Why do you not have it?
We say He is an on time God, We say God can not Lie, so there must be something on our part that God is expecting from us to receive our reward.
This is so simple, but yet so hard to do.
God said just seek me. come after Me, just like that man you wanted so bad, just like that woman you wanted so bad, just like that job you wanted, just like that business you want.
Please do not forget our God is a jealous God; seek Him first.
Your personal relationship with God is personal. Wee can not look at anyone else how they seek God, and think we are doing better than them, and asking the question why they are blessed, and you are not. Why God gave them a reward and not you.
Do you remember the Lady that put 2 pennies in the plate and Jesus said she gave more than anyone?
Only Jesus knows the heart.
He knows if you are seeking Him diligently.
I know you are saved and you did not have to work for it; because we are saved by grace, that is a gift from God. But gifts are different from rewards.
David said in the book of Psalm 27:13 ” I had fainted ,unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Seek and shall find.
