An Abundant Life
Jesus' plan for our lives is that we would have a good life. The enemy wants to do his best to destroy the plan Jesus has for our lives. The enemy comes to steal our joy, peace, happiness, and every good thing Christ has for us. He comes to kill hopes and dreams, and to destroy everything God has promised us in our lives. I encourage you today not to live the life the enemy has for you, but to live the life Christ has promised you. Jesus said He came that you might have life and not just and ordinary life but an abundant life. A life filled with joy, peace, mercy, and grace and all the benefits Christ has to offer. Don't let the thief into your life to rob you of the things Christ has died so you can have.
Don't let the enemy steal your joy, or your peace. Living the abundant life doesn't mean you will be happy all the time, or everything will go your way and there won't be any problems, but it does mean you never have to walk in this life alone. You never have to worry about who is on your side, because Jesus is always there. You may not have all the riches in the world or the material things, but you will have a life that is full with all the goodness God. Jesus wants you to live the abundant life.
Because Jesus came that we might have life and life more abundantly I have more assurance now than ever before to know, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Thank you Lord for coming to give me a life more abundantly, and thank you for allowing me to be your child. In Jesus Name Amen.
