God’s Picture of Abundance!

Standard

God’s idea of blessing is far above what we normally imagine. TheBible says the  Israelites sent spies into the promised land. They returned with a report that it was a land flowing with milk and honey. It says, “..and from there cut down a branch with a single cluster of grapes; and they carried it on a pole between two men, with some of the pomegranates and the figs.” Numbers 13:23.

God wants to bless us in every way, over the top, to the max, exceedingly above all we ask or imagine. We tend to limit God, to doubt Him and His goodness. Even when He gives us a glimpse, we lack faith. The Israelite spies said, the land is good, but there are giants in the land. How often do we see the glass half full? Are you living with a negative mindset? Fear is the opposite of faith. You need to go forward with what God has promised and stand in faith. Just look at all that abundance and blessing He has set before you. “Fear not, I am with you.”

“Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication;  And let them say continually, “The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant.” Psalm 35:27. God desires to bless us and make us prosper. Meditate on that while you eat a big bowl of grapes tonight.

“All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.  Now God has not onlyraised the Lord, but will also raise us up through His power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be! Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, “THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.”  But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:12-20.

 

“Not all things are profitable,” Sure, that extra piece of chocolate cake may be permissible, but is it profitable or beneficial to your body? We are the temple of God and need to practice self control. We should choose healthy foods to are profitable to our bodies. If you are struggling with self control, one of the best ways to beat that demon is to fast. More on that later!

Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit
