“We went through fire and flood, but you brought us to a place of great abundance” (Psalms 66:12, NLT)
God’s plan for His children is abundant life, i.e. abundance in every area of life. We should be enjoying abundance spiritually, physically, materially, and financially. Jesus said in John 10:10 NKJV, “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.” 3 John 1:2 (NKJV) says, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
Every triumph is preceded by a trial, and every testimony by a test. All the fire and flood you have gone through, or are going through, have prepared or are preparing you for the great abundance God has in store for you. Psalms 65:11 (NKJV) says, "God crowns the year with His goodness, and His paths drip with abundance.” So this year will surely end for you in abundance in Jesus name.
The key that unlocks the abundance is PRAISE. Psalms 67:5-7 (NKJV) says, “Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You. Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us, And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.” Between now and the end of this year, start to praise the Lord like never before, and people will marvel at how the Lord has blessed you in Jesus name.
