My God's plan for me
Goes beyond my wildest dreams
My God is goo He's good to me
Yeah, yeah, so good to me
yeah, yeah so good to me.
These are a portion of the words to the gospel song: "My God is Big, by Planet Shakers. Last Sunday when I was ministering to my congregation, well, we were actually testifying to about the goodness of the Lord. I told them that we need to stop asking God for little things! things and needs that He has already promised to take care of; (Philippians 4:19, Matthew 6:26, Psalm 37:25).
God told us the He knows the count of every strand of hair on our head, He promised that the righteous would never be forsaken or beg for bread, He said that He would supply all or our needs..... according to His riches in glory. God does not need our help for the things pertaining to our godliness and our living.
What we need to do is ask for "The Big!" Ask for the supernatural, ask for the things that YOU know you, Pookey, Ray Ray, Sheniqua, Sister Watermelon and them can not help you with. We must look with eyes of faith and do what the Scripture says. Speak to the mountain and tell it to be thou remove and go over yonder, my words paraphrased! We know Jesus wasn't talking a bout a literal mountain, but He was referring to your circumstances, situations, problems and dilemmas. Look, there are some things that only a BIG GOD can do!
When God told Moses to go to Egypt and tell Pharaoh to let my people go, Moses wanted to back out of it. His response was, "God I am not eloquent of words, I cannot speak. Maybe he stuttered, I don't know. And God got angry with him. He told Moses that he would use his brother, Aaron as his mouthpiece. However the biggest part of the deliverance of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery was that, God Himself said, He would come down to do the work. He "Jehovah, I AM," would come down to delivered the children of Israel. Moses was chosen as a servant leader. His job was to obey God and follow His lead. Moses's job was to use the tools God had given him, watch God wrought supernatural miracles, signs and wonders that he nor anyone at that time had never seen before.
The Almighty God, Eloheim, created the entire universe by opening up his mouth and declaring things to come forth and they did, just read the first three chapters of Genesis. Well, we have the nature of Christ, his son. He has given us the ability to decree and declare a thing and it shall be establish (Job 22:28). We must realize that life and death is in the power of the tongue. Why waste you words on things that we ourselves can accomplish by merely disciplining our selves, partnering with others to meet a need, establish a business, feeding the hungry etc.
We need to use our prophetic voice to call those things that be not as though they were, (Romans 4:17). If the miracle you need and desire is not physically present, you must learn to wrap the word of God around that thing, and keep calling it to come forth in Jesus' Name, until you see the physical manifestation of it.
I remember a chant Prophetess Juanita Bynum taught us at one of her conferences years ago. It said: "I'm Big In God, Cause Little Don't Got Me No More!"
That is it in a nutshell. We have to stop thinking so small. We serve a Big God. I often tell my people, when we got saved and baptized in the Holy Ghost, we did not receive a "Junior Holy Ghost! We got the same Holy Spirit that Peter, James, John, Paul, and the other disciples and those in the Upper Room on the day of Pentecost.
Peter walked by and folk got healed, Paul laid handkerchiefs on folk and they got healed and delivered, Peter preached in the booked Acts and 3000 got saved in one day. We have been given power over all demonic forces that dare to come against us.
Stop walking by things and saying, "That can never be mine." Stop dreaming about things and saying, "You did it for sister so and so, but I don't have the education she has." Stop driving pass buildings and saying, "But I don't have enough tithing members to purchase that building." Don't you know that if you could do it, if you could afford it, then why would you need FAITH!!!!
"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Instead of saying, "I can't, say, "Why not me!" My God is Big! He will come down and accomplish great and mighty things in my life, if I first, watch this: Seek Him First and His Righteousness," (Matthew 6:33). Guess what people, there are always conditions that we must meet!!!! God says, "If you'll do this, then I will do that!" Check our the Bible, Ya'll, there are always conditions that we have to meet. God promises to keep His word, but will we?
Well, I have rambled enough this morning. I hope I made my point. God wants us to use our FAith for "THE BIG! I am looking at land, countries, the lost, opportunities that otherwise would not be opened to me, with a different eye and faith.
Why not join me on this journey?
The sun is shining, and the Son, is still on the throne. Have a blessed day, And;
DON'T FORGET TO SAY YOUR PRAYERS!
