“God of Abundant Life”

God of Abundant Life

by Dona Hake

Serving Jesus is serving the one that has promised abundant life!  John 10:10 “I have come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”  Forty one years ago today, at nineteen years of age  I surrendered my life to Jesus.  I was a stubborn person and I had a way that I could argue with any Christian till they were blue in the face.  Nothing seemed to convince me because all I seemed to encounter was hypocrisy and I hated it!  Then finally I saw the real and I allowed the Lord to take hold of me.  The most important decision I ever made and might I say the joyous!

Has every day of my life been victorious and has everything gone perfectly?  Absolutely not!  My skin crawls when I see or hear anyone of faith that tries to portray that life is a bed of roses  just because they are a believer.  Jesus told us that in this life YOU WILL have trials.  In the book of Romans, chapter 8:31 “What, then, shall we say in response to these things?  If God is for us, who can be against us?  He who did not spare his own Son, but gave Him up for us all- how will not also, along with him, graciously give us all things.”

God has made it possible to fill our cup to the full!  Let us be careful though to realize that He desires to  fill us to the full in order that we have Him to draw upon in our times of test, trials, pain and suffering.  The life of abundance is that of always having His all sufficiency to draw upon, and NOTHING can separate us from Him.

Romans 8:39

“…neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,

will be able to separate us from the

love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
