Sometimes people fall into the habit of expecting the bare minimum from God. Somehow Christians have gotten it into their minds that life is supposed to be dull, plain, and mediocre. They think that being a Christian is about surviving life, not thriving in it.

However, this is not the type of life that your heavenly Father has planned for you. Jesus says, “I have come that [you] may have life, and that [you] may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).

Consider this: Your heavenly Father created life, and He is the one who gave life its name! All of the beauty of this universe, the brilliance of the galaxies, dew sparkling on a flower in the morning sun, the rich colors of the autumn leaves, the joys of marriage, children, friendship … all of these amazing gifts come from your heavenly Father! Who then do you think is best suited to give you abundant life?

Your heavenly Father is the most generous father in the entire world. There is nothing good that He will withhold from you. He may not always give you something that you want, but that is because it might not be truly good for you.

Remember, your heavenly Father knows all about life, He knows what true joy is and He knows how to give you the most incredible gifts. So start expecting the abundant life He promises!

Prayer for the day: Today, thank God for His generosity and for always giving good gifts. Ask Him to help you delight in His gifts, and to gratefully expect the abundant life He has planned for you.
