Abundant Thinking


Abundant Life Part 2

Changing our mindset to think, and speak, abundantly.


Most of us are raised to believe that we only have so

much time, money, room, energy, etc., so we should be

cautious with what we do with these things. If we use

too much, too fast, then we won't have enough for

later. Or, if we give too much away, then we won't

have enough for ourselves. This kind of thinking is

based on scarcity, not abundance.


This is the mindset that dominates and controls this

fallen world. Unbelievers (and even some believers)

spend their lives gathering up as much money and

possessions in the name of scarcity. They're afraid

thát they won't have enough. They are only looking at

what they can see in the natural world. God has called

His children to a higher way of living.


“Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ,

keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated

at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things

above, not on the things that are on earth,"

(Colossians 3:1-2 NASB).


We have been raised up with Christ, so we should stop

looking to the world and its people as our source. It's

true that the things of the earth only exist in limited

amounts, so if we look to them to sustain us, then we

will limit our lives. However, God is the God of more

than enough. That's why one of His names is El

Shaddai. If our eyes and our minds are set on Him,

then we will live as He lives: abundantly.


Our heavenly Father has never had a scarcity mindset

about anything. Even after Adam and Eve sinned

in the Garden of Eden, God did not think that all was

lost. He made a way to give even more of His grace. He

did not allow the limited condition of man and the

world to change His thinking. We are able to do the

same because Christ lives in us.


We must give up our mindset of "just enough" or "not

enough". It will lead only to selfishness and lack. We

need to fix our eyes on Jesus and allow Him to be the

source for our lives. When we begin thinking

abundantly, we will speak abundantly. When we speak

abundantly, we will see the God of more than enough

work in our lives.
