Meditation Scripture — Proverbs 8:32-36
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” — John 10:10
As we go through this life, we encounter so many disappointments, failures and mistakes that we sometimes get to the point that we believe that we are destined to live a mundane, dull and listless life. I am here to encourage you to not to listen to the lies of your thoughts, its time to listen to Jesus. God is not a killjoy, keen on making our lives dull or dismal. He sent His only begotten Son, Christ to restore what was destroyed by our decisions, decimated by tricks of the enemy and to give life instead of death. The Messiah’s message is one of wisdom personified. Our loving Abba Father promises us His blessings if we walk in the ways of Wisdom and it’s a matter of just being wise, listening to the instructions of Wisdom, and obeying the life instructions given by Wisdom. Lady Wisdom promises each of us a life of favor from the Lord and she promises us a “life filled to the fullest”. We are admonished to live in harmony with Our Creator as well as His creation, the life our Abba Father intended for each of His children – a life of visions manifested, promises kept, and relationships enjoyed to the fullest. It’s the life of doing what’s right and being a blessing to others while showing God’s love in all we do. You will only live once and you must live it abundantly, as a full life builds a family, community, a nation and a kingdom that overflows with ABBA loves. Get in the flow of Wisdom and watch His blessings flow!
Lord, give us eyes of wisdom to see your design for the full life of love, blessing and overflowing favor. Empower us with your Spirit as we only have one life to live and we make a choice to live it to the fullest and abundantly, we pray, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
