Living a victorious and abundant life designed by God is without question the need for these times.
God created man and woman in His image and likeness. We are the closest expression of God. God built us to last and put the right ingredients in us as we are designed not to fail but to prevail and enjoy an abundant life, for this was the very purpose why His Son came. For Jesus said in the scriptures: “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” God desired that we won’t just have life but live it more abundantly through the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit. Abundant life is the life which understands personal blessing and victory over sin and adversities which in turn paves a way for others to experience their own breakthrough. This kind of life is lived in and through the Spirit. For “In Him we live and move and have our being.”
Living in the Spirit or spirituality is our powerhouse. We can live with sufficiency as He is more than enough for us. We function without inadequacy because we are resourced from above. We might feel weak but He assured us that in our weakness, His strength is made perfect within us. We don’t have thoughts of inferiority because it is God who affirms and stands for us. Spirituality anchors us in realizing the fullness of heaven’s provision for us as He gave us His Son, His Spirit and His Word.
The tragedy for many is that they fail to live this kind of life. People miss it because they were enslaved by depravity, debauchery and sin. Such negative spirituality is evident in depression, stress, fear, frustration, bitterness, inordinate struggle, breakdown and defeat. But God made a way for us to step in to the realm of godliness and God-ordained spirituality. He calls us to reason with Him and promised that though our sins may like be scarlet or red as crimson, we can be forgiven and cleansed by faith. As we connect with Him, we will be changed and renewed in the spirit of our mind. The result of which is that we are translated from darkness into His marvelous light, from wickedness to righteousness and from defeat to victory according to the richness of His mercy and grace. Thus, we are restored in the spirit.
To conclude, living in the Spirit ushers in abundant life. The operation of an empowered and resurrected spiritual life opens the possibility of victory in all fronts of our lives. Spirituality brings us to the region of faith. Then, we can truly experience what Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) has said: “The man who lives in the region of faith dwells in the realm of miracles.”
Let abundant life manifest. Let miracles flow. (JVS, CRFV)
