What do you think of when you hear the phrase “God’s Abundance?” The first thing that comes to mind for me is fruits and vegetables, green grass and trees, babies and children playing…a happy, healthy life.
The very heart and nature and character of God is to provide for us Abundantly.
Wow! Let that resonate with you for a moment. You may ask yourself why? How? There are a lot of questions that come to mind when wondering how and why God chooses to do things, especially providing for us, his children.
The New Testament teaches us that God’s Abundance in our lives is a result of both obedience and grace. If it were not for God’s grace where would any of us be? And for me, because of His grace, I want to be more obedient to him. Don’t you?
When I think of abundance I think of all of the things that God has given us. What do we do with these things? Well we can use them, or not. We can share them, or not. One thing that I have chosen to do is to share with you what I have learned was given to me from God.
God has created such a wonderful world for us to enjoy. God’s abundance is everywhere.
We could argue the point that we are taking advantage of what God has given us, both in good ways and in bad. As American’s I know that we have more than many other nations. The abundance of food alone is outrageous for me to comprehend. The amount of food that is grown in the United States that is produced only for animal consumption is amazing when we think of those that are going hungry.
What I want you to think about today is the things that God has given us that we overlook. God’s abundance.
I have heard of many people only eating a God-made diet. This is a diet where we only eat things that come from the earth, whether fruit, vegetable, mineral, animal…just nothing that has been created by man like Twinkies.
What we often overlook is that God’s abundance also provides us with God-made medicines.
Diet is a wonderful, wonderful thing if you are eating correctly and not eating all of those man made things that we get today. Candy bars were not meant to be eaten as a meal. Fruit, however is something that God provided us with to consume on a regular basis.
Essential oils are made from the very essence of plant material (wood, fruit, leaves, etc.) This is one of the things that I have found that is part of God’s Abundance for us as Christians. God gave us essential oils as his medicine.
Did you know that the Bible refers to essential oils or aromatic plants and aromatic products 1035 times? There are at least 33 Bible reference to essential oil producing plants. God’s Abundance!
My love for essential oils has developed over years, but intensified in 2011 when I found out the significance of essential oils in the Bible and how these same oils can be used today for preventing illnesses, curing disease, and maintaining a healthy home.
In biblical times, the plants that many of the essential oils that were used, were placed on the floors of homes or buildings. We think that floors were covered with dirt, but they were not! They were covered in plants that contained God’s medicine. As the plants were tread upon, the oils were released and used by the body as God’s way of helping our body’s help themselves.
Today we use essential oils on the bottom of our feet, because of the reflexology points that correspond to the rest of our body. According to researcher Jean Valnet,M.D., an essential oil that is directly applied to the skin can pass into the bloodstream and diffuse throughout the tissues in 20 minutes or less.
In Biblical times, do you think we had the technology to know this fact?! I don’t think it had anything to do with knowing, I think God gave us this gift and showed us how to use it!
We have learned that God’s medicine, essential oils, help with preventing and curing cancer. I use essential oils for bug bites, headaches, fever, and calming my hyper child. I thank God that he has given me these gifts!
For our family we have taken these gifts from God, essential oils, and started using them for what he intended. We have incorporated God’s medicines into our lives and are sharing them with other families. God provides the abundance for our family and for yours. I hope to share more with you on how to use God’s abundance in your family.
