“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.
If the company you work for came to you at the end of the week with only some of your paycheck, that would not be okay with what you received. Most of your paycheck would be better, yet that still wouldn’t due either.
You did all of your work, therefore, you rightfully expect all of your compensation–nothing less.
Rightfully expect nothing less than an abundant life. Jesus came and lived a sinless life, loved, discipled, saved, healed the sick, opened blind eyes, caused the lame to walk, delivered, empowered, forgave, endured, and then, gave his life on the cross for you and I. He finished the work. He sowed his life so you can reap an abundant one. Now as a son of God, you can rightfully expect everything he paid the price for.
It is the Lord’s joyful desire, and His plans are still to bless your life. Expect nothing less than being free in Christ, nothing holding you back. Expect nothing less than what Jesus has provided. Expect nothing less than what He promised you.
Prayer: Thank You Father for Your Word. Thank you Jesus for the work you finished on the cross and I can rightfully expect to be blessed above measure. I am free. I believe You, and I will expect nothing less than to experience Your promises in my life. It is Your joyful desire for me. Thank You, Lord! In Your name, I pray, Amen!
