How to Manifest the Abundant Life

Abundant Life Part 3

The abundant life is already within you.

The Bible defines "life" as life as God lives it; or even

more literally, God Himself. The word "abundant"

means superior in quality and quantity, to be in excess

or surplus. So, God wants us to have His life and not

just a small piece of it, not just a sampling of it. He

wants us to have a superabundant supply of His life in

quality and quantity. The God-kind of life should

permeate every part of our lives. He gives us the

ability to overflow in our relationships, finances,

emotions, bodies and most importantly our spirits.

This abundant life will manifest differently in each of

our lives. For some, abundance may be having a big

house, nice material things and a large family to share

all this material wealth. For someone else it could be

having fewer possessions in order to be more generous

in giving to ministries and causes that they believe in This

could go on and on, the point is, the abundant life is not

about keeping up or comparing ourselves with someone

else. It's about trusting God and allowing His

life to flow in and through us.

Comparison is only going to hold us back from

enjoying the life God has planned. If He wanted us to

live someone else's life, He would have made us

someone else.

However, we do need to know that we can have as

much of His life as we want. If we want more, then

more is available. This "more" doesn't come through

doing more religious activities like serving in church,

giving to the poor or praying with the unsaved to

receive Jesus. Although we should be doing all of those

things, they don’t grant us access to more of God's life.

We already have all of God's life in us. If we want

more of it to manifest, we simply need a greater

understanding, or revelation of that life.

"I pray that the glorious Father, the God of our Lord

Jesus Christ, would give you a spirit of wisdom and

revelation as you come to know Christ better. Then

you will have deeper insight. You will know the

confidence that he calls you to have and the glorious

wealth that God's people will inherit," (Ephesians

1:17-18 God's Word Translation).

The key to living the God-kind of life is understand

that all of it is already within you. Pray and ask your

heavenly Father for a greater understanding. You'll

find that with greater understanding comes greater
