Excerpt from “Living in God’s Abundance”:
We think we know what we want, but God wants more for us than that. We think we know what’s best for us, but God has something even better in mind – far better.
With our small imaginations, we plan and picture and strive to possess what we think will make us happy. God’s imagination is limitless, and yet we often think that what He wants is contrary to what would make us happy. So, with our puny minds and hugely self-benefitting prejudices about what should be right and what should be wrong, we rationalize that what is immoral is really morally okay and we spin our own interpretations onto what Scripture tells us is the best way to live.
This is not just the “why” of sin; it is also the reason why we close ourselves off from God’s abundance. God’s abundant goodness, God’s abundant generosity, and God’s abundant love are not as available to us as He would like them to be, because we insist on protecting and maintaining our small view of the Truth.
To open up to the greater goodness of God, we have to dare to break through the walls of the little world we’ve been trying to protect, the world of our own making that holds within it the lesser life that we created for ourselves. Like a blossoming bud, we have to allow the light of truth to change us.
