“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” John 10:10, NKJV.
We all know how to die, but God wants to teach us how to live. We know how to crash, but God wants to show us how to soar in Him. Maybe you don’t know what a real life in God looks like for you. What does freedom look like when you’ve been bound for so long? What is a prosperous life when you’ve been broke for so long? What does a happy life look like when you’ve been sad and depressed for so long? And what is true love when you’ve been abused since you were a little girl.
Maybe you’ve never experienced life as God has it, but that won’t stop Him from giving it to you. His divine will is that you experience life and life more abundantly right here on earth. Abundant means superabundant in quality or superior in quality—the best life.
There is far more to life than what you’ve been experiencing. There’s more to see, more to do, more to partake of and enjoy. Don’t refuse the life He wants to give you just because you’ve never had it. He wants to fill your life with good things! He is good, and you have to trust in His goodness and love for you.
It is the divine responsibility of the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you into all truth. He will shatter every lie the devil has told you. He will reveal His heart and will teach you how to live!
Prayer: Father God, thank You for speaking directly to my heart. It can be scary pursuing what I’ve never had before. I don’t know what it’s like to truly live. Help me learn. Teach me, Lord, how to live. In Jesus name, Amen.
(Read John 16:13; Ephesians 3:20-21)
