Day 31: Forever Abundance


You stand before THE JUDGE.

And HE is waiting to hear what you have to say.

For you weren't summoned to go before HIM.

For it was you who made the appointment.

You look into HIS eyes.

And then start talking~

"Investigate my life, O GOD, find out everything about me; Cross-examine and test me, get a clear picture of what I’m about; See for yourself whether I’ve done anything wrong— then guide me on the road to eternal life"

(Psalm 139: 23-24 MSG).

You did it.

You exposed your whole self

to THE JUDGE.

Nothing to hide.

Total SUBMISSION.

Why would you do this?

Why would you present yourself as an open book,

for wouldn't THE JUDGE throw the book at you

and condemn you

with the dreaded word of

GUILTY!

But you know THE JUDGE oh too well,

and that is why you come before HIM,

because you want MORE OF HIM

and you want to get rid of anything

that gets in the way

that strives to rob you of

THE ABUNDANT LIFE

that

HIS SON has GIFTED to you.

For you know

THE JUDGE

as your CREATOR,

as your FATHER,

who

LOVES you

ABUNDANTLY MORE

than any other human being,

because

HE SENT HIS SON

to LOVE YOU

with the opened arms

on the

CROSS,

that added the word

NOT

in front of the word GUILTY,

so that you and I and everyone else

can come before

THE JUDGE

with an open heart

to not RECEIVE

condemnation,

but to RECEIVE

GRACE & MERCY

that spurs you on to

let go of anything that stands in the way

of

RECEIVING all

that

GOD has for you

in the

HERE & NOW.

Therefore,

make an appointment

with

THE JUDGE,

because when you do

you will leave with

MORE than you ever could ever bargain for~

"Now to HIM who is able to carry out HIS purpose..."

that is

"...SUPERABUNDANTLY MORE than all that we dare ask or think..."

that is

"...INFINITELY BEYOND our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams,

according to HIS power that is at work within us..." *

because

"The LORD is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. HE will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever. HE does not punish us for all our sins; HE does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve. For HIS unfailing love toward those who fear HIS is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. HE has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west"

(Psalm 103: 8-12 NLT).

And that my friend is

why we can

LIVE THE ABUNDANT LIFE

in the

HERE & NOW

on our way to our

ETERNITY~

"...to HIM be the glory in the church and in CHRIST JESUS

throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen"

*(Ephesians 3:20-21)

Do you want MORE in the middle of LESS?

"HOW CAN YOU NOT"
