I was led to this powerful message for everyone to really mediate on about If you are really enjoying Life. Seriously, take a moment right now, think, and honestly answer this question, are you enjoying your life? I am not asking you if everything is perfect in your life, since that will never be the case. We will always have things that we are facing, battles to fight, challenges to overcome, that is simply part of living in this sin-filled and fallen world we are passing through. But today I want you to take some time and reflect and tell me whether you are enjoying your life or not.
“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” ~ John 10:10
If the Lord asked you if are you enjoying your life? How would you answer Him. Without any hesitation I would tell the Lord that yes, I was really enjoying my life. Despite the problems and trials we all have to face in our life, despite the never-ending challenges, the bottom line is I look forward to each day and truly enjoy my life. You see, God wants us to enjoy our life. After all, the Bible tells us that He came to give us life and LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY!
Here is the key and the message I want you to hear today. No matter what your trials may be, no matter what your challenges may be, no matter what your battles may be, you can still enjoy your life and embrace the promise that Jesus came to not just give us life, but life more abundantly! That means despite the hurts and pains you may be experiencing today, you can still enjoy your life and the abundance Christ promised you.
I know you’re probably asking me how you can enjoy your life when you are going through a divorce, or dealing with a major health crisis, or in bondage to some addiction, or have serious financial problems, or children who are living in rebellion to God, or need a job, or a myriad of things that may be going on in your life today. The answer is your relationship with Christ! Because of HIM, you can face all of the problems that are out there and still enjoy your life.
I want to encourage you today that if you are not enjoying your life, it is time to START! The fact is today is the only day you are certain of, tomorrow is promised to none of us. Each day we wake up is a gift from God and we need to treat it as such. No matter what we may have to face during the day, we have to never forget if you’re a born-again believer that Christ is living within us, we have His strength, can live in His victory, and that is why we can go through the day with that peace that passes all human understanding and unspeakable joy.
