Survive or Thrive?

We were not created to “survive” till Jesus comes but to “thrive”. There’s a huge difference in “surviving” and “thriving.”  I looked up the word “survive” in the 1828 dictionary and it means to “to remain alive; to outlive any thing else; to live beyond any event”.  The word “thrive” means to “To grow; to advance; to increase or advance in any thing valuable; to prosper in any business; to have increase or success.” Surviving is great but Jesus came so that we we can live an “abundant” life. I don’t know about you, but in this “business” of life, I want to grow, advance and prosper rather than to just “survive” or remain alive.
But you may say you don’t understand. You don’t know my circumstances. You’re absolutely right- I don’t know but there is ONE who knows and His name is Jesus. He made a way for you on the cross and there is nothing you will ever encounter that he has not already conquered for you.  We were created to have dominion and we have been given all authority to tread on anything that comes against us and nothing (I like to say NO THING) shall harm us. So come on now… Lets THRIVE and not just survive. My Bible tells me that my God ALWAYS causes me to triumph!  He has given you POWER and AUTHORITY but you must pick up your weapons and use them so you can THRIVE and not just SURVIVE!
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
