God intends for you to live a blessed life. He desires that you have everything you need–both spiritually and in the natural realm–so that you never want for anything. That’s what Jesus meant when he said in John 10:10: “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” But as this book will teach you, the only true way to receive God’s blessing is to put first things first by allowing His Word to go to work in your life–to “seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously” (Matthew 6:33, New Living Translation). That’s when He will give you everything you need. Keeping God first will keep your faith alive, keep you rejoicing, and help you overcome the challenges of life–to live in the abundance and blessing He desires for you.
