God's Attitude Toward Abundance

Tuesday, October 09, 2018

We can understand God's attitude toward abundance as demonstrated in the very first miracle Jesus performed: it was a miracle of abundance. It was during a wedding feast in Cana, and the host had run out of wine to serve his guests.

Jesus' mother told Him about the problem and then instructed the servants of the host by saying, "Whatever He says to you, do it" (John 2:5 NKJV). Verse 11 further states, "This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him."

Jesus' glory was revealed through a miracle that did not heal anyone nor did it deliver anyone from demonic power. It was a miracle of abundance. Jesus did what He saw His Father do, He provided abundant supply—increase!

It is significant that the first miracle was a miracle of abundance. God has made a clear case that blessing and increase are part of His plan for His people.

Just as Abraham believed those first words that God would bless him through His covenant, we also must receive His promise and His plan by faith and activate it in our lives.

Look closely at Psalm 115:16: "The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's; but the earth He has given to the children of men" (NKJV).

The wealth of the earth is not for those who are living for greed or lust or selfishness. It is for those who walk with God and have put Him first in their life. The world has misused wealth and its power for ungodly or personal gain, and not the purpose for which God gave it. Wealth and riches are given to us for the purpose of establishing the covenant of God. Deuteronomy 8:18 says,

"And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day" (NKJV).

God gives us the power to get wealth. His wisdom and anointing empower us to possess the wealth and riches for the purpose of establishing—to set up, ordain or to prove—His covenant.

God made a covenant with Abraham and established it again with Isaac and Jacob. In that covenant, He promised to bless and multiply them and their seed. He is bound to His Word, and therefore He is bound to bring that increase into our lives if we will walk by faith with Him.

It is time for the increase of the people of God to be, "...exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think..." (Ephesians 3:20 NKJV). It is the day for increase to come and the message of faith in God to flourish.

As we increase, we are able to use this wealth to further establish God's covenant in others. The ultimate plan for our increase is that the message and power of His covenant may be brought to all people—worldwide.

We must lay hold on our covenant, and God will establish His covenant of increase in us. (Click here to give an offering.)
