God does not have to be of many words, to bless us greatly – abundantly. He reassured me this morning when I felt my spiritual current that I have been riding, begin to slow – inertia had set in. One word He spoke to me has driven me on a wave for the past 10 years or so; give or take a month – Author.
He spoke one word to Peter, “Come” when he asked to walk on water; and Peter became the Rock that He chose to build his church upon. So, Father I ask you just to speak a Word into my life to give me the ambition, enterprise, initiative, diligence, perseverance and elevation needed to rise above any thoughts of defeat – one word to continue what you started. God always does so much more with less. However, it blesses us beyond what we ever could have imagined.
You must ask God for what you want – point blank. Yes, He knows what we want; but He wants to hear you ask for it – in faith. He wants to know that you believe in what He told you will come to pass. Closed mouths don’t get fed and closed minds don’t get renewed to other possibilities. Why should He keep giving to someone who does not want to believe, nor will they act on what He purposes in their heart to do? Can you really be upset with Him, if that has been the person in whom you have become – cynical and such? Ask God for it all – all your dreams, all your desires, and for all of your hopes to be fulfilled. Cast your net out into the deep and expect to pull in a draught. There is no telling what all you will haul in, but I can tell you this – you won’t get anything if you do not ask.
God won’t place desires in our heart unless He’s going to give us the wisdom to accomplish them. Many doubt and then blame God for not doing what He said. He can’t work with a doubting spiriting, but a spirit that believes “That we can do all things through Christ that strengthens us”, those people He will use because we aren’t binding His hands. God is a gentleman and will only take the lead when we give Him the control.
Sometimes we can be on fire for the Lord and then something comes along and throws a wet blanket of despair and doubt onto your blaze to smother it out – Get the spirit of Elijah and know that when you pray that it doesn’t matter whether the blanket is damp or soaking wet, the fire of the Lord will still burn – Keep the embers of your past testimonies and faith burning -Keep Pressing!
God’s drop-in-the-bucket outpouring is a tsunami of blessings in our lives. Our greatest blessing comes from knowing God in the pardoning of our sins and for Him being God – period. Everything else that we receive is a byproduct that many of us take for granted. Our peace and our prosperity are all in just knowing the Lord Jesus Christ.
When you take the time to sit and have a conversation with God, not always in prayer form but just talk to him as you would your best friend; keep it real and remember to still reverence HIM as the Creator, He will drop things into your spirit and guide your steps; and you will begin to notice that he is moving you along the path to your success. But none of that can happen apart from being in HIM.
Chase after time with God, not the things that He can give you and He will send His blessing to chase after you because you loved him simply for being Him. We are made in the likeness and in the image of God so much to the point wherein we find ourselves jealous if someone claims to love us, cheats on us. God wants nothing else before Him. Treat God like you are in the relationship of your dreams and he will bless you beyond your wildest dreams.
