"I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." John 10:10
Jesus paid the price for us to live a full life here on earth now. He lived a full life and so did the first apostles. Now we are just as entitled to that fullness of life. We are living in the same era as the first apostles. God hasn't changed.
Expect to have a full ministry. Signs, wonders, healings and miracles. Visions and dreams. Extraordinary works and events. These should be happening to us and with us. We should enjoy times with Him and our daily faith walk.
"Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart's desires." Psalm 37:4
When you pray for yourself you should ask God to put his desires for you into your heart. Then test the ideas that come to you and ask God to confirm them. Then keep praying till they become real on earth. We take delight in God by pleasing him. Bible reading and serving Him are two of many ways of pleasing God.
Not all desires are for spiritual things though all should aim to bring God glory, and should originate with God. Some desires are for hobbies, interests, work, who should be our friends, how we should spend our time and so on.
God does want us to enjoy our lives. Have a full life of faith. As well as in the natural. He wants us to be happy, and cheerful, fulfilled and satisfied. He doesn't want us to undergo endless trials with Satan stealing from us, killing our hopes and dreams. Destroying our happiness and peace.
Life to the full. Live it. Enjoy. Have fun. We are meant to.
