Tomorrow is the big, Thanksgiving day where we will spend hours in the kitchen (if we haven't already), run around like mad women (or men) with multiple tasks, eat, watch football, eat, sleep, clean, eat, more football and sleep. That's a lot of eating, a lot of football, and a lot of sleep. An abundance of good things, if you ask me.
I'll talk about this a little bit tomorrow, but
God doesn't just give us a little love, He gives it abundantly. God doesn't just give us a little grace, He gives it abundantly. God doesn't just give us a little freedom, He gives it abundantly. I could go on, but you get the point. He gives us the things we need, in abundance. In fact, we don't need or for that matter deserve those things in abundance, but He gives it to us anyway. I would be happy if I just recieved a percentage of His love, but He loves me to His full capacity just like He loves you.
Ephesians 3:20-21 says, "Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen." Did you catch that? It says , "far more abundantly beyond". Woa. Far more. Abundantly. Beyond. I don't know what else to say. That's how much He loves...forgives...protects...and so on. John 10:10 says, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." Praise God!
In Him we find abundance.
Today's scripture was Acts 6-7.
