Can you imagine never wanting for anything, ever? Wouldn’t that be a dream?

I Tim 4:8, “For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and that which is to come.”

            How can we be godly? Godliness with contentment is great gain.

            Phil 4:11 “Not that I speak of want; for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”

I Tim 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness”.

Godliness is devotion to God.  Godliness is holy living. Are you devoted to God? In what ways are you devoted?  Are you living a holy life?

            Titus 3:8 “This is a faithful saying, and these things, I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.”

            It is by profit that we are able to lack scarcity.

            See God’s wonderful providence evident in nature. Praise the Lord, O my soul. At the dawn the sun warms us and at the dusk it lulls us to sleep. Our eyes see the stars millions of light years away. Every intricate detail of creation had our need as its’ purpose. Matthew 10: 29-30, “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are numbered.”

            Do you have any idea how precious you are to God? How many hairs are on your head? If God will care for the birds surely, He would grant his providence to you.

            There is a spirit of scarcity that can attach itself to you and make you think you are poor when the treasurers of heaven are at your disposal. Rebuke this demon. Don’t believe it for even one instant.

            God is the master of the universe. Psalm 104:2, 4 “O Lord, how manifold are thy works. In wisdom thou has made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping enumerable, both small and great beasts. There go the ships: there is that leviathan, which thou has made to play there in. These wait all upon thee that thou mayest give them their meat in due season. That thou gavest them they gather. Thou openeth thine hand; they are filled with good.”

            Imagine all the oceans full of abundance for us! Praise God!
