“Shifting Through Asking and Thinking”
Eph 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceeding, abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.
What a powerful scripture! Many times we read this scripture, but there is some powerful revelation in it! I want you to know that God wants to do something powerful in you and through you! But here is the catch! You have to make a sacrifice in your life which requires a SHIFT.
Why a SHIFT? Because everything nice in life, has a price and requires a sacrifice! Did you know that anytime God takes you to a new level in him, a shift is required? SHIFT means to move from one place to another!
In other words you cannot stay where you are and expect to walk in the exceeding, abundantly and above all anointing and blessing in your life! Greater works requires a shift! Greater anointing requires a shift! I want to give you some revelation today! It all begins when you shift in your asking and thinking!
In Eph 3: 20, Paul gives God the glory by saying, Now unto Him (God) who is able to do exceeding, abundantly above all you may ask or think, according to the power that works within us.
Now we know that God is able to make all grace abound toward us! He can do all things whether it be exceeding, abundantly and above all we ask or think!
Question for you? How is your asking and thinking? Asking is synonymous with prayer, thinking is synonymous with your mindset!
As we embark on our prayer and fasting this week, the Lord wants you to shift in your asking and thinking.
- Shift in your asking which is your prayer life! God wants to reveal the exceeding, abundantly, above all things to you! Be a leader in prayer! Launch out into the deep in your prayer life! Be bold, confident and exercise your faith through prayer!
- Shift in your thinking which is all about your mind! Meditate on things that concern the Kingdom of God. Pray that God would give you the mind of Christ! Meditate on his word, think spiritual thoughts, and how you can do greater things not just for you, but for the kingdom of God!
- Last but not least according to Eph 3: 20, the power is in you! God said I can do it, I will do it, I desire to do it! But it starts with the power I have placed within you!
When you make a conscientious decision to SHIFT in your asking and thinking for Kingdom purposes, the power of the Holy Spirit will come alive in you, and as you exercise your faith, you will see the exceeding, abundantly and above all blessing manifest in every area of your life
God Bless and Shalom!
