Are you interested in eliminating lack from your life?
Are you interested in bringing good things into your possession?
Here is God’s formula for eliminating lack and bringing good things into your life.
John 15: 7 – “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
As always, there is the same contingency, we have to be in right-standing with God and our lives surrendered to Christ.
Assuming you are where you need to be in Christ, did you get the full significance of Christ’s words – “ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”?
Consider God’s formula from the James 1:5 angle; “If any of you lack ____, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”
Now, I know that the scripture uses the word wisdom but in reality it is a formula that you can instantiate by simply filling in the blank with your need and exercising the formula.
I want you to notice two things especially:
This word “liberally” means to give in an unrestrained or unstinting way. Synonyms for this word include bountiful, freehanded, generous, handsome, munificent, and openhanded. This makes it plain to us that God isn’t interested in giving “just enough”. God isn’t a “skimpy” giver. God isn’t a “cheapskate”. God isn’t “tight-fisted”. (See Luke 6:38)
The word “upbraid” means to reprove sharply, to use as grounds for censor, or to express criticism towards. Clearly, God is saying that He will not reprove, censor, or criticize you for asking of Him.
Aren’t you thankful that we have a God who gives to us “liberally” and who “upbraideth not”?
Put God’s formula for eliminating lack in your life and for bringing good things into your possession to work today.
