THE LIGHT: The Awesome Generosity of God
Caption: The Awesome Generosity of God
Before God created Adam at all, he had already created everything else, more than what Adam could possibly need. Infinitely beyond what Adam could ever use up. He also made them regenerative, that is, they were self-replenishing. Every plant carrying seeds that ensure continuous resupply and every seed carrying trees within it that ensures continuous re-growth and replenishing. Everything he needed and would ever need was there. Adam could never be poor, and no amount of famine could have brought him down.
That was God’s plan before the fall of man. In fact the word poverty wouldn’t be in existence because we simply would not understand what it means. I see people today, talk as if God doesn’t want them to be properly provided for and I begin to wonder. We are the ones that look at the rich as rich; does God really look at rich as rich? God’s understanding of being rich is different because He has never been poor. From the beginning, God’s plan for human beings is that we will all be abundantly supplied, by the generosity of the ever-generous God.
Till today, most of us do not realize the real importance of the fact that, God created us to be like Him, and to be called His sons, going all over the universe, looking at the beauty of creation and enjoying its blessings and pleasures, that was the plan. God never lack, and he created us to live a life of abundance, and absolutely without lack of any sort. The young lion…Psalm 34:10…, all things are yours…KJV, my God shall supply ALL your needs…KJV. The Lord is my shepherd, I SHALL NOT WANT… Psalm 23:1
All these upset the devil so badly and he therefore, tries to prevent us from understanding who we truly are and what we have in Christ Jesus. This he does sadly often successfully, Paul warned us to be careful of his devices or he will take advantage of us….KJV 2Corinthians 2:11. Paul said devices, this is simply deceit and trickery, because he knows that men are created in the image of God and are destined to have dominion, are stronger than him. He knows that if he comes to you directly, he is going to be defeated. Therefore, he comes to you and peddles fear, sickness, poverty, hatred and other schemes orchestrated to make you distrust and lose faith in God, and before you know what is happening, you will be the one that will hand over your victory to him if you are not careful or aware.
The true picture is that God is a generous, faithful and reliable God to His children. What is the essence of a billionaire whose children are wearing rags or you come across the wife of the richest man your country wearing tattered clothes and working as a cleaner in a company; I believe you will say to yourself, that something must be wrong.
From now, start conceiving and believing that God actually made all things to be in your favor and sacrificed His only son, Jesus Christ, so that you can be abundantly supplied. He did this for you so you can experience the demonstration of His awesome, loving and ever-present generosity. Begin to have the mindset of abundance not lack. It does not matter if you are in lack at the moment, reclaiming your victory it start from your mindset. The bible says the battle is at the mind level, win the battle in your mind, and start thinking abundance.
Develop positive habits and lifestyle of faith. Command and speak the blessings to your life, speak favor to your life, create what you are going to be with your mouth. Life and death…Proverbs 18:21
Galatians 3:9 KJV – So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
Galatians 3:9 Amplified version – So then, those who are people of faith are blessed and made happy and favored by God [as partners in fellowship] with the believing and trusting Abraham.
We are the people of faith; God took it as His responsibility to work for our happiness. The cost of love is death and the effect of love is life, abundant life. Remember Jesus said that I have come to give them life, that they may have it abundantly.
John 1:12 KJV – But to all who did receive him, who believed in His name, he gave the right to become children of God.
John 1:2 Amplified version – But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, and that is, to those who believe in Him (adhere to, trust in and rely on) His name.
Sonship gives you the rights of inheritance; we are inheritors of God’s wealth. By rights and as Christians, we ought to be supplied by God. In your house, your children cannot be begging for food, it’s their right and privilege to be fed. Every child knows that it’s his privilege to have his needs met by his parents. It’s our privilege to receive the supplies from God. We are entitled to God’s riches, don’t let the devil convince you that you are not in that rightful position. Everything God owns, you automatically own. You have to resist vigorously anything that is blocking that confidence in your heart. Anything the devil is using to block that needed confidence must be broken.
You must have total faith in God’s consistency faithfulness and reliability. In Mark 11:23, Jesus succinctly told us two secrets of getting things done on this earth.
- HAVE FAITH IN GOD.
- SPEAK FOR EFFECT BY THAT FAITH.
You are blessed
