What is the Spiritual Truth Concerning a Life More Abundantly
Author: Greg Tharpe
They faithfully meditated morning, noon and night seeking clarity, guidance and direction from the spirit of God within them. As time passed, they began to get more in tune and hear the word of God spoken clearly to them in their intuition. Therefore, as the results of the time spent inwardly seeking the Kingdom of God, their faith increased; this in turn caused their prayers to be answered more frequently. The word of God began to bless them abundantly in every area of their life.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. [John 10:10 KJV]
Many Christians do not believe in a life more abundantly on earth, even though they would love to have it. They rebuke the ideology that prosperity and abundance comes from the ideas and wisdom that we all have access to. Their beliefs are that a life of abundance is reserved for Christians when they die and go to Heaven. They believe that lack, poverty, suffering, stress and unbalance is a “natural” part of life and is unavoidable. Therefore, they denounce the fact that Jesus came to show believers the way to a life more abundantly in every area of life.
I agree that life more abundantly is not the main purpose of life, although it is the rewards of spiritual growth, transformation and increased faith. Purification of the soul or awakening to the truth is the main objective; however, God knows that we also have physical and material needs while here on earth. Therefore, when our faith increases abundantly, it allows God or the Holy Spirit to reward us with a life more abundantly. However, many do not believe that God is in us or a part of our life for that purpose.
From a more spiritual perspective, we were born with the power and potential to create and destroy. Based on how we use this power is what we will manifest in our life. This power will automatically create some type of life, ranging from peace, joy, happiness, love, good health and prosperity to stress, sadness, hate, illness and or poverty. The power of the mind will give us whatever we ask of it either consciously or unconsciously. It does not question or judge based on race, gender, religious affiliation or political affiliation.
We can choose to use our power to intentionally create abundance in every area of our life or we can allow the world to influence, dictate and limit our beliefs of what we can manifest. We can choose to believe that abundant blessings are evil, and not use our creativity for the prosperous evolution of the world. God is abundance and the spirit of God is in us, therefore we are abundance. We are all blessed with abundance potential but some do not have the faith that causes it to manifest. Many do not believe that a relationship with God or understanding our spirituality can bring us abundant blessings. Therefore, we rebuke abundance in the context of associating it with God and life on earth.
The key to a life more abundantly is to first believe that it is possible. Then visualize an abundantly blessed life dream and write it down on paper.
And the LORD answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. [Habakkuk 2:2-3]
See yourself abundantly blessed in all areas of your life. Then, seek spiritual transformational education, so you can gain a clear understanding of higher intelligence to assist you in manifesting this life.
Realize that your guidance will not be clear as you first proceed, the reason being is because you are too far from the Source or God, but proceed anyway. As you grow in understanding or get more in tune with God, your faith will increase and your guidance and direction will get clearer. The synchronicity of the universe will begin to bring the people and the resources together that are here to assist you. Continue to grow and get closer to God and you will soon clearly hear your guidance for a life more abundantly.
