ABUNDANCE IS GOD’S FINGERPRINT! Most of us don’t see the abundance that is everywhere and as a result we miss the abundance that would be, could be, should be in our lives. Count the stars if you can—abundance. Try to find two identical snowflakes—abundance. Number the species of flora and fauna upon the planet and you soon come to the conclusion that abundance is the order of the universe.
SO WHY DO SO MANY STRUGGLE WITH ABUNDANCE?
Because they don’t see it. And they don’t see it because they have a misconception about what abundance is. Abundance is tapping into your unseen resources to manifest what you need when you need it and to receive your wants when you want them.
Gwen came to me with a story. She was inspired as I talked about doing some entertaining thing and she thought, “I want to do something fun this afternoon.” The problem was that she lived on a budget and there wasn’t any money in the budget for fun. So she focused her thoughts and asked for an entertaining afternoon. “Ye have not because ye ask not.” A few minutes later there was a knock on her door. A friend stood there with two $150 tickets in her hand and asked if she would like to attend to a soiree that featured Willie Nelson singing some of his hits. Of course she said yes, and because it was an exclusive fund raiser for a university the crowd was small enough that she got to talk to Willie and let him know that her pastor (Moi) was a big fan. She found her abundance. You can too!
Abundance is found when you look for it. Jesus said, “I am come that you might have life, and that more abundantly.” Catch that—life more abundantly. In the original language the phrase could read—abundant in quantity, superior in quality. That’s the kind of life that you want to live. But to live it you have to see it, identify with it, and—bottom line— believe that it’s yours.
That’s hard for a lot of people because they’ve been taught that life is a zero sum game. They don’t understand that there is a difference between competitive living and creative living. When you go “Behind The Door” I’ll share five things that will help you to experience abundance in your life. And I’ll tell you more about the difference between competitive living and creative living—and that will make all the difference in the world.
To go “Behind The Door” you need this month’s password. To get this month’s password you need to sow a seed, an offering, into this ministry. Your seed is an investment in ministry but it’s also an investment in yourself—it’s an affirmation to yourself that your potential is worth investing in. And it goes without saying (That is, if you know my ministry) that seed sown brings increase. Your offering can be any amount. The default setting is twenty dollars but you can raise it (many do) or lower it (I want everyone to be able to go “Behind The Door”). When you sow your seed you’ll be sent this month’s password—it’s good for the entire month. I’ll meet you “Behind The Door”..
