In the Old Testament, think of the children of Israel wandering across the desert, following the promise of a land “flowing with milk and honey.” Freed from the slavery and want of Egypt, the Lord led His children to abundance. Though they were rebellious just about every step of the way, God was faithful every step of the way. His forgiveness and patience abounded in excess. And when they reached the Promised Land, they found it flowing with milk and honey just as He’d promised. Spiritually and physically the Lord provided for His people abundantly.
In the New Testament abundance comes from the Savior. Jesus Himself told the disciples that He came that believers might have life, “and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10 NKJV). Life in Christ, abiding in the vine, is full to overflowing because God fulfills his promises. Christ Himself was abundant in mercy (1Peter 1:3 NKJV) and abundant in grace (1Tim 1:14 NKJV). His abundance of love was shown by his death upon the cross for us.
The Lord bestows abundance on His children. The promises of God are never lacking, they are always filled to over flowing.
