God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
- 2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV
God is the god of more than enough.
The Greek word Paul uses in this verse is autarkeia, which is found in classical Greek, meaning “independently wealthy, needing nothing.”
Not only is God more than able, He is willing to provide for us what we need in abundance. He is not the God of poverty or lack. He is not the God of just enough, He is the God of more than enough!
“May the God who is more than enough grant you mercy and favor.” Genesis 43:14 TPT
The truth is, God loves to take care of us, bless us and provide what we need. This is a truth we must allow to set in our hearts and permeate our minds. Instead of going through life passive with a half-hearted shrug of hope saying, “Hopefully God pulls through…” or “Hopefully God takes care of me…” we should lean into His promises and truly believe what it is that He says He will do!
When we choose to fully surrender to trusting in Him, it lifts our spirits, removes burdens, and causes us to rejoice in fresh faith birthed within us!
Allowing the truth of God’s promises and the truth of who He is to penetrate our hearts and minds will enable it to also go deep into the recesses of our souls.
We will be able to joyfully and effortlessly declare all He will do in faith-filled confidence!
Throughout the Bible, God’s promises and what He says He will do for us can be seen.
To name a few, here are some you can be encouraged by today:
- God promises to protect you. (Psalm 91:3)
- God promises healing is yours. (1 Peter 2:24)
- God promises blessings. (Deuteronomy 28:2-6)
- God promises you have the victory. (Romans 8:37)
- God promises you comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:4-5)
- God promises you strength. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
- God promises He will meet all your needs. (Philippians 4:19)
And many, many more!
Doubts and fears will fade away when we intentionally choose to lean into the truth of His word. Allowing His glory and goodness of who He is to captivate and consume you every day will birth a genuine sense of expectancy to flow from your inner being.
Whatever you're in need of today, know that God is more than enough! Ask the Holy Spirit to help you wholeheartedly believe and grasp the truth and blessings that are in scripture. When you do this, you never have to yield to fear ever again!
“Heavenly Father, thank you that you are the God of more than enough. Help me to never go through life with a passive attitude, a poverty mindset and weak hope towards your truth and goodness. I trust and believe you will provide for every need I have and more. In Jesus' name, Amen.”
