More Than Enough

Gloria Copeland
The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto.

God doesn’t promise just to meet your basic needs. He says He’ll give you an abundance. Some religious people would argue about that. But the truth is, there’s nothing to argue about because the Word makes it perfectly clear. Look back at what we just read from Deuteronomy. Look at that for a minute. If you don’t have abundance, why would you need a storehouse? A storehouse is where you put extra, the surplus, the ‘more-than-enough.’ If that’s not clear to you, verse 11 of that chapter says point-blank that ‘the Lord shall make you have a surplus of prosperity’ (The Amplified Bible). I want you to remember those words ‘a surplus of prosperity’ because that’s God’s will for you. When you made Jesus Christ the Lord of your life, God’s blessing came upon you, not so you could just ‘get by’, but so you could have a surplus of prosperity. That shouldn’t really surprise you. After all, if you look at God’s history with man, you’ll see that when He had His way, man was abundantly supplied. Everything in the Garden of Eden, for example, was good. The temperature was just right. The food was right there on the trees. All you had to do was pull it off and eat it. Talk about fast food! There was plenty of gold in the Garden. Adam and Eve lacked nothing In the same way, God cares just as much about your abundance. He wants you to have more than enough. He wants you to have good things, a good home, good food…everything! He’s the God of more than enough! 1 Kings 7-8; Galatians 2 The Lord commands His blessings upon my storehouses and in all that I set my hand to do. Deuteronomy 28:8
