God does not randomly hand out blessing and cursing. When you were born God did not say, “I’ve given everyone else a good plan with hope and a future, but it’s going to be different for this one. I’m going to make sure this person never succeeds.”
His plan for all of us is blessing. His blueprint for our lives is abundance.
“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope,” Jeremiah 29:11 (TLB)
We have to build our lives in accordance with His plans.
Our Father can plan, envision and give us strategies for abundance, but if we don’t accept His plan and use His strategies, we will live our lives wishing for the abundance that’s already ours.
We were created to live a flourishing, growing, productive life. Everything we touch should come to life. We don’t find abundance in our marriages, our jobs, or our possessions; we bring abundance to them.
“He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper,” Psalm 1:3 (NKJV)
When we go somewhere God’s favor goes with us. This blessing should be contagious to everyone around us.
We were born to live a life that overflows with grace and truth. If it overflows, then it should spill onto those around us.
“I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing,” Genesis 12:2 (NKJV)
We should wake up every day believing in and living this blessed life. We have to be conscious of it so it can elevate our lives and the lives of everyone we meet.
