Day 16 We need to operate from God’s purpose

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
When we operate from a position of need, abundance does not come to our lives. This happens because God always provides for His purpose, not for human desires. If you are living paycheck to paycheck, you cannot be a blessing to others. Nonetheless, many conform to this level. They are as the servant in the parable of the talents, who misused his talent by burying it (Mt. 25:14–30). They live satisfied with having just enough, not realizing this is the mentality of scarcity. This is not the mentality of the Kingdom! God wants you to fulfill His will and purpose, because doing so will result in abundance. Change your mentality of scarcity, and exchange it for one of abundance and overabundance. It is important that we seek to fulfill God’s purpose in our lives, instead of getting bogged down with lack. Many may believe that poverty makes them humble before the eyes of God, but He detests this attitude because it goes against His original purpose. God wants us to be prosperous in all things! (3 Jn. 1:2)

Do you want to stop living with just sufficiency, or would you prefer to live in abundance? Stop doing things out of necessity, and instead seek to fulfill the purpose of God for your life. Do you dare to start today?
Let us pray
Father, right now I break the scarcity mentality because that is not a Kingdom mindset. I align my purpose to Your purpose and my will to Your will. I change the scarcity mentality and replace it with a mentality of abundance and overabundance. Thank you Father because, by walking in Your purpose, I’m prosperous in all things, and the Kingdom advances. Amen.
