So here is the scene. Everyday you get down on your knees, or ride in the car, or sit in a quite room praying that God will open up the windows of Heaven and pour down a blessing so big you can’t even imagine it yourself. You are going to church, you are being nice to people you really do not want to be nice to; you have even put your money in the offering pot. Whatever level you are in your walk from tithing to fasting, from seeding to studying the Word, we all have been in a place that we are asking God to hear our cries and make our wildest dreams come true.
You have faith; you have the belief that things are going to happen right? Well let us look at that, you believe that God can help you get a new career, yet you have not once brushed up your resume, or applied for a job or two. You check on Monster and HotJobs but the positions you see you believe you are not “qualified”. Or maybe your hope is for a new business, you believe that this idea will work, but you live in a studio apartment and you have no where to store your materials. How about finding a space to rent for your business, or finding a larger space to live in?
I hear you, “I don’t have the money for that”, or “I am just not qualified for that position”, “It’s too big of a risk”. All legitimate reasons to not pursue your destiny, except for one thing: you believe that “…my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19, Amplified)
If you have this type of faith, a faith that believes that there is nothing that God has at His disposal that He can ‘t give to me, then why do you have this feeling of doubt of yourself. If this is something that God is truly calling you to do, and you know that it doesn’t go against the Word. Psalm 23:5 says:
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
This verse says so much about God and His love for us, and the capacity He has to bless His children. Not only will He prepare a blessing for you, it will be done despite naysayers, unbelievers, haters and enemies. Friends who have your back, yet believe you are CRAZY to leave that job, or move to a new place or pursue your dreams. Your parents warn that you should not “waste” your savings. Please know that Psalm 23:5 tells you that He will cover you, protect you and give you a shield away from these attacks or comments. And after it is all said and done He will bless you. Not a regular blessing, but one that is spilling over.
Your dreams are big, your prayers are big, and your thoughts and longings are BIG. If you believe that God can help you do these things, you have to make a leap of faith and believe that He will honor that. God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19).
So have faith that He will do what He said, and GET A BIGGER CUP!
