DAY 100

2 Peter 1:4 2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Stuff. Materialism has crept into our culture so deeply that things, toys, goods, and entertainment have consumed us. We are a nation of not only consumers but a nation of the consumed. Even our faith has been bought out by the need for stuff so that we can prove we are blessed.

The abundant life in Jesus is so much more than stuff - the big house, fancy car, or luxurious vacation. Not that there is anything wrong with having these things, but they are not what the abundant life is all about.

An abundant life is one lived fully in the knowledge of God's love and grace.

The garden of Eden oozed abundance for its occupants. But the serpent perched in the one forbidden tree. His forked tongue darting in and out whispered to the woman - you lack.

How often do we set aside the promises and gift of Grace God offers us and choose to believe the lie - that we lack?

Choose life this day. Resist the enemy and his message of lack and walk according to the promises of our God who loves us wholly.
