We may have what we want in life. We may get the things we wish to get. We may acquire resources because we have the capacity, we may live a life of abundance because we have the means . . . but no matter the luxury, and no matter the abundance, if your life is not in tune with God, everything is a hollow world of emptiness. Apart from God we are nothing! The first thing first is God. He is our Alpha and He is our Omega! Everything is possible with Him.
A life of abundance is God’s plan for us. He wants us to be the image of His Grace, the representative of His favor, the source of His truth, an instrument of his blessings, and more so, the agent of His Kingdom whom He trusted and blesses. There can never be anything that could ever replace God’s position in every arena of life.
He created man, and He engineered man. God is the perfect image of a Loving, Merciful, Forgiving, and ever Gracious Master of all times. He is our total source. Man’s resources and every wealth acquired are not his own . . . because man is just a steward that he should not boast. God gives but God also gets if we are not worth of a steward.
God has His own way of giving as well as His own way of getting back. We can never question God’s ways. He knows our coming in and our going out. We are assured that God holds us in His hands. His eyes are going to and fro guarding us in every way we go. Even in the midst of sorrow, He is with us. Even in our self-made chasms, God’s presence is there. He takes care of everything in us and for us. Indeed, He is a God who cares!
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his
name's sake.4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort
me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine
over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow
me all the days of my life: and I will dwell
