Words that give LIFE How do i live the abundant life now?

Obedience is abundance

And provides us the opportunity to live the abundant life now

“Jesus said, it is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ Matthew‬ ‭4:4‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.” Psalms‬ ‭1:2-3‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Father how do I live?

How do I choose and make my way in this world?

Do I chase after career, money and status and join the rats as they race along mindlessly?

It's so hard not to be washed away with the tide that is so strong within me.

"What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul?

What would you give in exchange for your soul?

You have shown me that my life does NOT consist in the abundance of my possessions.

And myself worth is not equal to my nett worth.

You tell me that, "You are more valuable than the whole world put together."

Father, I confess most times I find that hard to believe.

Slow down. Be still. Breathe.

But I reach out and ask that you help me overcome my unbelief and accept your WORD planted into my soul

Let me build my life on the foundation of your WORD.

Jesus, Bread of Life, let me partake of you and your WORDS to make them mine.

To bite, chew, digest and let it become WORDS that give me an abundant life here and now.


“I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” John‬ ‭6:48-51‬ ‭NIV‬‬
