How often do we think about the things that we don’t want in our lives? If someone asked what we would like to have in our lives, could we tell them? Or would we explain all of the things that we don’t want?
When we talk about the things we don’t want in our lives, then we are giving our attention to those things. I have example after example of this in my life. When we focus on negative things, then they tend to show up everywhere. The same is true, however, for positive experiences.
Before my Zippy books were published, I went to sleep every night imagining kids all around me while I read my books to them. At the time, I didn’t know how my books would be published, but I stopped worrying about how it would all happen and just believed that it would. The vision I had with the kids has been replicated over a hundred times. What started out as a dream became my reality.
God will give us the desires of our hearts. Therefore, we need to allow our hearts the time to desire things. We need to spend our time focused on what we want and allow our hearts to feel the joy for the blessing right now. Before we could be saved we had to believe wholeheartedly that God would save us. The moment that we believed was the moment that He saved us—and gave us the greatest gift of all.
An abundance of blessings is available to us. We just need to believe that God can and will bless us according to His will for our lives. So often we put God in a box and limit His power in our lives with our unbelief. But we need to remember that God is unlimited. He is powerful.
Today, I want to focus on the power and goodness of my Lord. I want to choose His abundance for my life and feel the gratitude for it right now. Every day we can find the good in our lives or the bad. It is up to us which one we seek.
