“And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity.” – 2 Corinthians 9:8
The secret to living in the fullness of God’s grace is to first realise that God is a fountain of abundance. If you associate grace with just carrying on as you are, then you will look at life from a different perspective to the one God created for you. But if you stop and look through God’s eyes and his loving heart, everything begins to change.
The reality is that God is rich and he has an abundance of treasure. This verse in 2 Corinthians 9:8 “God is able to make all grace, every favour and earthly blessing come to you in abundance,” is a fantastic affirmation of the overflowing heart of God to his children.
God has provided all we will ever need to live each day in an abundant wonderful and intimate relationship. We can take full advantage of living out our eternal life right now.
God’s loving heart was intended to overflow into all his creation. We are his special delight and Christ’s finished work has overflowed into each of us when we are united with his spirit.
God’s desire was that we would neither lack anything nor be poor, all heaven cries out for us to possess the land that flows with milk and honey, to eat of the lavish fruit and to graze in the fertile, lush green pastures.
To flourish in the land God has provided for us, is to enjoy the abundance of every blessing bestowed on us.
Carrying on just as you are is a lost opportunity to enjoy the rich delight of daily feasting on the banqueting table of heaven. Christ gave up the riches of heaven; he entered into this world of dust and ashes to ransom you from the poverty of separation. His motivation was love, his expression was kindness, and his gift was grace.
