Developing an Abundance Mentality | Sunday, July 10, 2022

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.”

 

_1. Abundance is a mentality

  • A mentality of abundance will impact every arena of your life; it frees you up to be a blessing to others
  • God is the God of more than enough – El Shaddai
  • Ephesians 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.”
  • His ability is beyond all that we could ask or think
  • The release of his ability is shaped by our thinking and our asking
  • We need God-sized thinkers. How big do you think? How big is your ask?
  • We have to continue to enlarge our capacity within us; it’s according to the power at work within us. God is infinite abundance; opportunities are abundant
  • We are contained or enlarged by our own capacity emotionally, mentally, spiritually, financially
  • The capacity to be disappointed and keep going, to be hurt and keep loving, to be betrayed and keep loving, to not understand but still keep trusting
  • Regularly expand your borders to facilitate abundance
  • Scarcity assumes there is no answer before it looks for an answer
  • Abundant people live above petty issues

Abundance is looking for an opportunity to enter your life

 

2. God is a God of abundance

  • Abundance is in God’s nature, in His name
  • God introduces Himself to Abraham as El-Shaddai “God almighty,” the God who is more than enough
  • The El who is all-sufficient and all bountiful, the source of all blessing and fullness and fruitfulness
  • The abundance of the kingdom of God is birthday out of the God of this kingdom
  • We will express God and walk with Him as we see Him
  • God is magnificent, abundant, generous, purposeful

3. The God of abundance establishes a covenant of abundance

  • Genesis 17:1-2; there is a covenant of increase and abundance
  • Increase and abundance are in the covenant we have with God: it’s a promise
  • God says I will establish My Covenant with you
  • God is more than enough when we walk in covenant with Him
  • Genesis 35:11; I am El Shaddai, You will be fruitful and multiply, increase

 

When you discover who He is, you discover who you are

 

Facilitating Discussion

  1. How is your current thinking affecting your access to God’s abundant life He intended for you?
  2. How can you lean into God’s covenant and trust Him with your life, provision and identity?
