Are you struggling to experience God’s provision and promises? Perhaps you’re simply looking for greater fulfillment and purpose in the daily details of your life. If so, I have good news for you. Jesus came so that you could enjoy life to the fullest (John 10:10), and there are practical ways to position yourself to experience a new measure of God’s abundance. 

Make no mistake: even though this blog provides three practical steps, walking God’s abundance requires more than a quick step-and-repeat formula. It’s how we live our lives.

The Hebrew word for walk is halaḵ. Literally, it means to walk, come, depart, proceed, move, or go away. Figuratively, halaḵ means much more than that. It’s used throughout the Old Testament to describe a way of life. How you halaḵ determines your life’s direction.

Check out these verses:

“I will walk (halaḵ) in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments.” Psalm 119:4

“If you obey the commands of the LORD your God and walk (halaḵ) in his ways, the LORD will establish you as his holy people as he swore he would do.” Deuteronomy 28:9

So, if you’re ready to follow God into greater things, here are three tips to help you put on a posture of abundance:

1. Know that God is Bigger & Better Than You Could Ever Imagine

2. Always Prepare for the Next Season

3. Create Rhythms of Pause

1. Know That God is Bigger & Better Than You Could Ever Imagine

If you want to walk in God’s abundance every day, filter your daily decisions through the goodness of God. We often put human limitations on an infinite God. If you can accomplish your dreams alone, you need to dream bigger. 

What would you do if you knew you could not fail? To experience God’s abundance, you must come to the end of yourself. You must step beyond what you can accomplish in your strength and trust God. That’s hard to do when you don’t know that God is good and will come through for you! Ephesians 3:19-20 (NLT) tells us that God will do infinitely more than we ask or think– now that’s abundance!

“May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

2. Always Prepare for the Next Season

To walk in God’s abundance, you will always have a part to play. Nine times out of ten, God isn’t going to plop your dreams right into your lap. God’s favor will follow your obedience and surrender to His will. (Think about it: to experience salvation, you must confess you are a sinner and ask God into your heart!)

In my experience, God’s favor:

  • Is attracted to preparation
  • Follows faithfulness
  • Fills a spirit of expectation 

So, how can you prepare during this season so that you’re ready for the next one? 

  • Invest in yourself and gain knowledge in the areas you feel like God is leading you to.
  • Surround yourself with mentors and people who will champion God’s best in your life.
  • When it comes to financial goals, take a step forward. For example, if you feel led to start a certain business, perhaps it’s time to set up an LLC, create a business plan, or get experience in that industry. 

 God will rarely show you the whole picture all at once. However, He will almost always show you the next step or half-step He wants you to take. 

Proverbs 20:24 says, “The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?”

God will unleash His favor and blessings at the exact time when your character and capacity can carry them.

3. Create Rhythms of Pause 

If you want to walk in God’s abundance, you cannot run at a pace that prevents you from listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Luke 5:16 (AMP) reveals how Jesus lived at a pace that protected His connection to the presence of God:

“But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray [in seclusion].”

Unfortunately, we live in a culture where the default posture is busyness and distraction. If we submit to this pace and never pause, we can fall victim to the following false narratives:

  • Instant gratification is better than waiting
  • More content = more wisdom
  • Busyness = productivity

Sometimes, abundance looks like less content and more focus. That’s how you get real momentum. Here are some ways to create rhythms of pause:

  • Schedule rhythms of rest, like Sabbath, to recharge. 
  • Implement moments to reflect and pray before, after, and throughout work. 
  • Be open to pivoting your day as the Holy Spirit directs– He is always trying to talk to you! (This is one of the major draws to financial freedom: it allows you to orchestrate your time, talent, and treasure as God directs.)
