And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:16-17.
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Ephesians 3:18-19
For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Colossians 1:9-11.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: 2 Corinthians 9:8.
As I prepared for the close of this year 2016 and the dawn of the new, these scriptures ‘convoluted’ in my spirit.
Immediately I could tell God wanted me to pick the elements of substance in them. Grace, Fullness and All sufficiency continuously resonated in my spirit long after reading them.
God’s grace unfolds upon itself. Grace at different levels of experience. Yes, it is grace that has brought us this far, but nothing short of that same grace and perhaps at a different frequency and intensity will propel us to the next dimensions we have and share in God for the next year 2017.
One thing is clear that the ministry of prayer will be taken seriously. Prayer will place a demand on the abilities and willingness of God in our individual and corporate lives. Here we will see God intervening rapidly and radically in our lives to achieve his glory. Amen!
We will praise and pray to experience His fullness. As it is written that we should be full of the Spirit. Eph.5:18. The active word there for us is the ‘full’. Wherein He will wear us up like a jumpsuit and we will Him the same.
Yes, we will be full of Him. Full of His life, and guided by His wisdom. Hallelujah!
The third active highlight in these scriptures is the All sufficiency.
Grace and His presence (life and wisdom) will make all things abound in sufficiency. Sufficiency is having rest as touching needs. A state where there is no limit to your material and spiritual resources. Resources (Human, material or financial) will not be a consideration in the execution of His will.
God wants us to have enough. He wants us to have all sufficiency and this we shall in Jesus name.
I urge you to let this guide your day to day affairs. Remember you are a product of His grace. 1Cor.15:10. And you will only emerge by His grace as well.
We will maintain a level of contentment of His Life and Wisdom accessible through a fervent priestly ministry in prayers. We will deliberately keep ourselves at a frequency of His spirit more than we have ever done.
To this we will be re introducing our early morning prayers once a week as we will also channel more time to prayers at every other of our meetings. Prayer is the soul of our ministry as a church. We will pray that the spirit of God takes full reins. We’d pray for souls to be saved through our evangelistic efforts. We will pray for every tree to become a forest of souls and finance. Hallelujah! Is.32:15.
We will pray for the work force, leadership, pastorate for a cascading effect of His outpouring. This and much more we shall witness in Jesus name. Amen!
God is our sufficiency. He is our reward. He is our hope and redemption of same. All that is required in material or resources are provided for. Men and women will release that which is the lords in their possession and the work and house of the lord in structure and men will be built as a mighty edifice. We receive a mighty supply of men, money and circumstances. God’s Work will be way-easier than previous times. His glory shall be revealed. Amen.
So I urge us to take every exercise seriously. Welcome to your year of GRACE, FULLNESS AND ALL SUFFICIENCY. Welcome to 2017. Welcome to PROSPERITY AND PEACE in Jesus name. Amen!
See you. Please Remain God’s Pride! Amen!
