Abundance – God Says Your Cup Runs Over! What Do You Say?
Put Your Trust In God and Speak His Truth Over Your Life!
This post is inspired by a recent sermon my pastor gave on the importance of having our words, and what we speak and say about ourselves and our lives . . . to have it match up with what the Word of God says. God keeps His Word. When we speak His Word we can trust that it will not return void!
Abundance is clearly made available for those who put their trust in God. Have you put your trust in God, but still find yourself confused and asking for the directions to abundance?
Let me get right to the point: Having what God says you have, requires SAYING what God says you have!
Are you with me still?
Consider Psalm 23, which is a well know chapter from the Bible. Often used at funerals, but is actually very powerful for daily living. It reminds us of the amazing provision of God. When God is our shepherd there is No want.
Keep in mind, as with all relationships, there is action required by both parties. God leads us to still waters. However, it is up to us to drink. The Lord is the master at restoring our soul, which is our mind. And He does just that when we put our trust in Him. When the storms of life come our way we do not fear, because He is with us. Why is He with us comforting us? Because, we do our part and put our trust in Him.
God says your cup abundantly runs over. What do you say?
If God’s Word says your cup runs over, then that should be the same thing you are thinking and speaking. We too often have an empty cup mentality. But remember, as a man thinks in his heart so is he. (Proverbs 23:7)
God continues to do His part, and you need to continue to do your part. Keep your thoughts and words lined up with His Word. He prepares a table for you, but it is up to you to eat!
There is a section in Psalm 36 that talks about how the children of God are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of His house. He gives them drink from the rivers of His pleasures. That with Him is the fountain of life.
God wants you to have overflow in your life so that you can be blessed to be a blessing. If you only have enough to meet your needs, or not even that, then you aren’t able to help others.
One of the names of God is El-Shaddai. This means the God of more than enough, the all sufficient one. God can turn your ‘not enough’ into ‘more than enough’.
So the question is: Who is your trust in? Make sure it is in the living, one, true God. Put your faith in Him and use your faith to see your abundance in the spirit until it is manifested in the natural. Say what God says and let your cup run over for a life of supernatural abundance.
A prayer for you today before you go:
“Lord God, I thank you, that you are able to turn my not enough into more than enough. You are my Shepherd and I shall not want or be in need in any area because you are overflowing my life with supernatural blessings like I have never experienced before. I receive Your anointing, Your help, upon my life, my family, business and career. I thank you that my life is overflowing so that I may be a blessing to others and glorify You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
May you experience God’s abundant overflow and growing prosperity in your life!
God bless you,
Simple Affirmation Power From A Single Bible Verse
How Can a Single Affirmation Provide Power?
If so, I’m here today to say ‘wrong’!
You CAN keep it simple and get results.
This is especially true if your affirmation is based on the Word of God. There is amazing power to discover from simply meditating on a single Bible verse.
Meditating on the Word does NOT have to be a struggle!
Start by choosing a verse that seems to jump out at you, or that you connect with. You may not even understand why you are feeling attracted to that particular verse. Just go with it and start the process of planting it in your heart.
Write the verse down and personalize it as your own affirmation. Keep it with you and read it to yourself as often as you think of it. Meditate on it and confess it as much as possible. Record yourself reading it and listen to it over and over.
Even if you don’t think it will have an effect – just do it anyway. Why? Because we are told that God’s Word will not return void. You can have confidence that when you speak it, it will be accomplished and prosper. (Isaiah 55:11)
My Personal Experience
A few years ago I added some verses to my personal goals and business plan. I kept a copy with me and read it often. Then I recorded it and listened to it regularly. Unfortunately, I stopped my daily affirmations and confessions for awhile and results in that area slowed almost to a stop.
But the Word that had already been planted kept attracting me back to those goals. This also reminded me to continue with the affirmations, which created a positive cycle.
One single verse that I confessed and focused on, and still confess regularly is:
“Be generous. A generous man will prosper. He who refreshes others will he himself be refreshed.”
I recognized recently that I am prospering in new areas that I have been generous to others in. I then thought of that simple affirmation and so appreciate the power of it shaping my life. Believe me, for years I struggled and taking time for affirmations seemed to be a total waste of time. It seemed a joke. But I can’t say it enough – God’s Word will not return void!!
If any of this rings true, I challenge you to keep it simple. Grab hold of a verse from the Word of God. Make it your own and discover the life changing power you can have from a single affirmation.
May you continue to experience growing prosperity in your life!
God bless & soar higher,

Now What? After Your Child Graduates and Starts a New Season of Life
My Little Girl Is Growing Up
She is very smart, talented, and beautiful. I’ve always been proud of her in many ways. Especially her ability to stand for what is right and make smart decisions.
Within the last six months or so, though – I’ve seen her decision making waver.
My heart has always gone out to other parents who have a child or children that stray from what they know is right and get wrapped up in the dark things of the world. I can now relate to what those parents are going through in a much deeper way. My daughter this year got hooked up with a bad group of friends and overnight turned into someone I hardly recognize. It broke my heart.
Thanks to a praying pastor, friends, and family, she is coming back around and I believe she will prosper in the good plans God has prepared for her.
Earlier this year I had a friend remind me that as much as I love my daughter – she is also a child of God and He loves her and cares for her way more than I do. I don’t know how to even explain how much that comforted me, but it still does . . .
I picture God watching over her and holding her at all times. Something I can’t do. So I continue to pray and trust God to take care of her.
Some Powerful, Encouraging Scripture Confessions to Pray Over Your Child in Accordance With The Word of God:
I pray that in all things my child is more than a conqueror through Jesus who loves her.
I pray, God, that You have put a new song in my child’s mouth – praise to her God.
I pray that my child has the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:16
I pray that my child is confident that You, God, who have begun a good work in her, will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.
I pray that, Lord, Your faithfulness will establish my child and guard her from the evil one.
2 Thessalonians 3:3
I pray, God, that You have sent Your word and healed my child and delivered her from destruction.
I pray that my child will be strong in You, Lord, and in the power of Your might. I pray that she will put on Your whole armor, that she may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For she does not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of the age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
I pray that my child realizes that You, Lord, know how to deliver her out of temptations.
2 Peter 2:9
I pray that You, God, will heal my child’s broken heart and bind up her wounds.
I pray that my child loves You, God, because You first loved her.
1 John 4:19
Go ahead and personalize these with your child’s name.
In good times or bad, we need to continue praying God’s will for our children. Then we’ll see growth take place in their lives to become all that God intends them to be!
God bless you & your children,
P.S. Is there a verse not listed above that has helped you? Please feel free to share . . . Thanks!
