The Abundance of God

There is no lack in God. He never comes up short, never runs out, never does without. There is always enough, and plenty more besides. Our God is a God of abundance.
  • I will sing to the LORD, because He has dealt bountifully with me. (Psalm 13:6)
  • The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures ... My cup runs over. (Psalm 23:1-2,5).
  • How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them fro the river of Your pleasures. (Psalm 36:7-8)
  • You visit the earth and water it, You greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; You provide their grain, for so You have prepared it. You water its ridges abundantly, You settle its furrows; You make it soft with showers, You bless its growth. You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drip abundance. (Psalm 65:9-11)
  • In His days the righteous shall flourish, and abundance of peace [Hebrew shalom, nothing missing, nothing broken], until the moon is no more. (Psalm 72:7)
  • For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. (Psalm 84:11)
  • But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth. (Psalm 86:15)
  • Return to your rest, O my soul, for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you. (Psalm 116:7)
  • Deal bountifully with Your servant, that I may live and keep Your word. (Psalm 119:7)
  • The righteous shall surround me, for You shall deal bountifully with me. (Psalm 142:7)
  • The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
  • And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8)
  • Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Ephesians 3:20).
  • And grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 1:14)
Step over into the abundance of God. He does not lack, and He does not hold back any good thing from those who are made righteous through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. His grace and provision is abundant toward you.
