Very often, we think about the gift we receive in salvation being strictly in the context of Heaven, and that is important. However, it’s also important to remember that in Jewish culture, being blessed meant more than inheriting eternal life at death. Deuteronomy 28:5 says, “Your kneading baskets will be filled, and your crops will grow.” And Psalm 27:13 declares that we “…will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” Clearly then, God’s heart toward people has always been one of abundance. He delights in giving good gifts to His children in the here and now, and He is honored when we expect Him to deliver on His promises. He is not a “survival mode” kind of Savior — He’s the overflowing, never-ending, all-sufficient King of the Universe, and He has more in store for our lives than we can even fathom. However, the key to inheriting His bounty is to trust His sufficiency and stop trying to find satisfaction in our own strength. The more we look to Him to provide, the more His miracle-working power can flow freely into our midst!
My friend, Jesus cares about every part of your life, and He stands ready to unlock a heap of supernatural goodness that will knock your socks off! While it’s important not to lean too far into prosperity, it’s also vital to remember that God is interested in everything that burdens you. Even better, all the resources of Heaven and earth are at His disposal to help. He is concerned about your job, your health, your marriage, your inner struggles, your finances, and your relationships, and He is dispatching the perfect measure of holy love to meet your needs and overflow to those around you!
