Romans 12:11 – Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
God wants us to have His very best. He doesn’t want us to just barely get by in life; He wants us to thrive and overflow with His goodness. Notice what our part is as His children – we have to be willing and obedient. It’s not just doing what the Word of God says; you’ve got to do it with the right attitude.
It’s one thing to give because you have to. It’s another thing to give because you want to. It’s one thing to go to work to pick up a paycheck. It’s another thing to go to work so you can be a blessing to someone else. It is one thing to stay married because it’s the right thing to do. But it’s another thing to stay married and treat your spouse with respect and honor so you can help them reach a higher level. That’s being willing and obedient. That’s having an overflow mentality. That is understanding that God wants to bless you so that you can be a blessing to others.
Beloved in Christ, when you live this way, there is no limit to what God will do in your life. Decide today to be willing and obedient and watch His blessings overflow in every area of your life.
Father God, I want to be willing and obedient. I want to honor You in all that I do. Help me to find ways to be a blessing to others as You pour out increase in every area of my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
