“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 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 is freedom when you’ve been bound for so long? What is a prosperous life when you’ve been broke for so long? What is joy and happiness when you’ve been sad and depressed for so long? And what is true love when you’ve been abused in every relationship you’ve been in. This is where many women are. We need God to show us how to live.
Maybe you’ve never experienced life as God has it, but that won’t stop Him from giving it to you. His will is that you experience life and life more abundantly right here on earth. That word “abundant” means superabundant in quantity or superior in quality—the best life.
There is far more to life than what you’ve been experiencing. There’s more for you to see, to do, 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 ever 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. Show me how to live. In Jesus name, Amen.
(Read John 16:13; Ephesians 3:20-21)
