God’s Hope for Your Heart from 2 Corinthians 9
GOD WANTS BLESSINGS TO FLOW THROUGH YOUR LIFE
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8)
God is not a stingy giver. He does not like to hold back, play it safe or give His children only the bare minimum they need to get by.
No, He is generous! He is lavish! He is an extravagant giver, to the degree that you allow Him to be.
You see, God is also a wise Father. He knows when the state of your heart is ready to receive abundantly, and when multiplied blessings would actually be turned cancerous by your own selfishness.
That’s why God has a purpose for His provision. He blesses abundantly, so that you will bless others abundantly, too.
Why? Because when you live with open hands towards others, you are free to receive even more from your Heavenly Father, because of this hope-inspiring truth: God wants blessings to flow through your life.
