10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
John 10:10

When you hear “abundance,” what comes to your mind? Today, I am talking about God’s abundance. I’m talking about the abundance of material and financial blessings. Whatever blessings you want to experience think about them, but don’t think small. If you have been thinking small, stop thinking small; begin to think big. If as a businessman you want great contracts, then think of bigger contracts. No more, “As it was in the beginning so it is now and ever shall be.” No, go over the edge. God needs you to agree with Him, He needs you to cooperate with Him, He needs you to be one with Him to enable you go over the edge. I respect the principle of progression, but the very essence of progression means that today will be greater than yesterday. The Pentecostal fathers did great things, but they were not familiar with the things we are familiar with today. We can exceed what they did in the past.

Think the way God thinks concerning every aspect of your life. For instance, instead of thinking and saying that you have a besetting sin, (there is no such thing as a besetting sin except the sin that you allow), say that you are servant to God and not to sin and only God will you obey. The Bible says that sin shall not have dominion over you (Romans 6:14). For you to obey God, you have to know the mind of God. This is the time for you to know the mind of God. The Bible also says we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). So you can understand the mind of Christ. Stop repeating what you’ve heard from people: “God ways are past finding out.” The Bible says Moses knew the ways of God (Psalm 103:7). If Moses, an Old Testament saint could know God’s ways, then how much more you, who is a New Testament saint, with a better covenant? Go over the edge and think big!

Confession: Jesus came to give me abundance of God’s life including material and financial blessings. I think big in accordance with the blessings I want to experience.
