Overflowing by Grace

John 15:16 (ESV)

16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

*Every encounter you have with God, the feelings you have, the word you receive,or the good thoughts that run across your mind are not by accident...It is God reaching out to you, and calling you to live a lifestyle for Him. He also wants to give you all the things He promised, but it takes going deeper in Him. Now, sometimes God will meet us where we are in our faith, but this can also cause you to sell yourself short. For instance, if you are asking God for $100, you could be selling yourself short from receiving more then enough. He loves you enough to give you what you ask, but think of how He views you: You are a precious child of God who has a calling...a gift to share to glorify Him. Why sell yourself short? Let's focus more on growing our faith for bigger and better, including God in our plans, and asking for His will to be done and for you to be equipped with more then enough to carry it out...
