John 10:10 (AMP) “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [overflows).”
The word abundance as used here is translated from a Greek word zoe, which refers to the eternal life of God. It is the very nature of God, in Genesis 17:1 God introduces Himself to Abraham as “the El-Shaddai”, meaning the Abundant God, or the All Sufficient God. God Himself is light, and this light proceeds from His life (zoe), John 1:5 says “And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it”. Everything that the kingdom of darkness (satan’s kingdom) cannot stand in the presence of the light of God
God’s best for us in life is abundant life. This is a life without limits, plenteous and rich, and it is as result of the life of God Himself at work within you. At New Birth, we receive this Eternal Life of God imparted in us (John 3:16). So when things look dark and gloomy in life, it is important to always remember that confusion is not the will of God for your life, but His will for you is life in abundance to the fullest till it overflows. Every believer has the nature of abundance, and through our faith walk, we cultivate this nature and make manifest the nature of abundant life in every area of life. Our responsibility is to take a firm stand against darkness, gloominess, lack, limitations and persist on breaking through into the realm of abundance.
There’s a treasure chest of power that is at work within you, and God is able, through the revelation of this truth do exceedingly great things in your life (Eph. 3:20). Act like this is truth, and make the declaration of this truth in your life “I have abundant life, and all things are possible with me”. As you do this, watch your life soar into greatness!
