The Over-flow

Psalm 69:9    “For the zeal of thy house consumes me and the insults of those who insult you fall on me ”

Colossians 2:7 “Let your lives overflow” 
with thanksgiving for all he has done.  The bible recognizes that you need more than just  a flow but an Over-flow. It is when you have an over-flow that is when your heart can send forth thanks-giving to God and bring down more blessings and deliverances.

We ought not to remain satisfied with less because we are suppose to Thrive and not Survive.

Eldad and Medad- ( Numbers 11: 29) They were asked to converge before the tabernacle but they were both absent and the spirit that was upon Moses came upon the 70 elders and yet the two men that were absent caught the over-flow and then they spoke in tongues. so the overflow is vital, they received it and their life changed entirely. So you need it.

When you have an Over-flow people will envy you …
Numbers 11:29 29 But Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!”
What is an over-flow?
It is defined; as the excess or surplus not able to be accommodated by an available space.
From the above definition I can extract the following “not able to be accommodated” which takes us to;
Jeremiah 20:9

“Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in my heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary from holding it back, and I could not.”

From the above verse I made to understand that if you have an over-flow you will be tired of holding it in and you will find out that it is more peaceful and fulfilling to utilize that power than hold it in… you will no longer have room for fear, timidity you will see yourself witnessing about Christ at any opportunity you have and to every body. Beloveth it is not negotiable we need an over-flow, we need more than enough to manifest as children of the most-high.
You want to Love your enemies you need an over-flow because you need more than the average kind of love to love your enemies.

We were not given just any kind of Love by the father but a supreme kind of love (Agape Love) which is an over-flow, which was manifested in the perseverance of Jesus as he endured the cross, no one would watch his or her son humiliated, beaten just for the sake of saving those who crucified him, that is an Overflow
The bible says in
Hebrew 12:2 ” looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” permit me to para-phrase ;
For the Love he had for us (You and I) he endured the cross… Jesus Christ is a representation of Love to the word not just the son of God. He is a perfect symbol of Love.

When you have an overflow you receive  that kind of testimony you cannot hide even when you want to, it is that testimony that announces you for decoration.

Your cup will run over in Jesus name.

When do you need an Over-flow?

If you find you are struggling to forgive, give, pray, joyful and so many more you need an over-flow.
People that have an over-flow of the fruit of the spirit they have gone above and beyond in their desperation to meet with God and possess that power that will enable them manifest like him, power to  Love, heal the sick, show forth wisdom the mind cannot comprehend,  to discern,  patience, humility and so much more.

If you are to look at challenges in the face and your resolve is to be stable, unshakable you need an over-flow you can have an overflow in faith, Anointing (Holy-spirit),  grace of which that is not for us to give but it is freely given unto us all but we must understand that grace on everyone’s life is in degrees but it is always sufficient a practical example of one who had an over-flow of grace was David, he fell short so many times but that grace spoke. I.e. when you have an over-flow you don’t need to struggle because it will speak with or without your consent and when it speaks there is always a lifting.
I pray today that Grace, mercy, favor will speak for you today. In Jesus name.

Proverb 24:10 “If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small” If you see yourself fainting during adversity, you need an Overflow, the strength you have is not sufficient enough,  “The lord is our strength” if the lord be your strength as you decree and you still faint then you need more of him…
Why do you need an Overflow?
-If you are not contented with the level you find yourself.
– If you are tired of your situation.
– If you want to live above the average.
-If you want to exceed your predecessors.
-If you want to posses the inheritance God has giving, you need an overflow.
-If you want that Joy that transcends human understanding you need an over-flow.
-If you a Joy that will discourage your enemies and your circumstances you need an over-flow.
-If you seek an increase in all dimensions you need an over-flow
-if you are ready to be more than a conqueror you need an overflow.
-If you are tired of surviving and you want to thrive you need an overflow.
-if you are tired of the minimum you need an over-flow.

As far as the blessing of God is concerned we need more than just enough, we need abundance of supply in, Grace, Love, peace, Testimonies, Breakthrough, wisdom, anointing.

psalm 23:5 “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” We need an Overflow.

Prayer
(a) Father fill me till I over-flow.
(b) Father defend your interest in my life.
(c) Mercy speak for me
(d) Father take me to the rock that is higher than I.
(e) Father I am tired of being ordinary, single me out for decoration.

God saw the light and it was good

Light is a representation of hope, guidiance , step worthy movements , salvation , peace , Jesus ….

Jesus said in as much as he is on this earth he is the light of the world so when he died on the cross he replicated himself in us so we ought to manifest as the light … We should be a beam of hope to the depressed , people must glorify God in us, men and women must reckon with us …

Genesis 1:4 “God saw the light and it was good”  when we manifest as that light we delight God , we become a sweet smelling savour to him.. gone are the days when I use to be ashamed of the gospel .. how can I be ashamed of the God that saved me from myself , my decisions … 

It is like a man saying he is ashamed of the first aid box that he used to heal himself because he wants to show he is infalliable … When we live a sinful life we fail to walk in that light which has been given to us, We abandon that hope , peace , step worthy direction …. I am happy to be filled again with this boldness …. I am no longer ashamed of the gospel , I am from above because my father is and I will not operate under the limitations of this world … My joy must sprout up , my head must be lifted in my humble beginings even now I saw what the Lord could do 

Looking back 🕠🕠🕔🕘

It is all because of you … The challenges have shaped me your Logos are comforting , for I know now that by the words in John 6:44

“I was drawn to him by grace ” -Akpederi Raymond 

The feeling Is simply magical …. And everyday I live my life knowing I am. Terrible person to love , you did not have to do it but you did it anyway, I am thankful … I grieved you countless number of times when my resolve becomes submissive to external forces … For you see the heart of the stranger and you deal deligently with it … My heart is heavy father I need an exchange , you said; 

Matthew 11:28-29King James Version (KJV)

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Answers that left me amazed 

Come to think of it all I have wanted , God delivers tho it may tarry .. but it is a certain , even in my uncertainty, Thank you father. Grace is the distinguishing factor between my Present and. My past… On  Saturday God answered a  prayer I sent from  my heart to him in split seconds … I  just stood amazed. Indeed you suffer no man to do me no wromg, I rather found favour 

put my confrontations to derrison 

Psalm 68:1

To the chief Musician, A Psalm or Song of David. Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

Yes Lord I say yes … Let mountains before your children be made plain .. you overwhelmed me with your speed yesterday when I prayed In my heart under that intense heat , and you laid it in the heart if a stranger to help me ,  I believe you know how hurt I am being compelled to fit into peoples schedules and constrained  even when it is that last thing I need  ,  that growth should be made manifest Lord, mountains must submit , Thank you for the testimony you have given to your children it shows you are with us. 

There is a message

in the feeding of the five thousands (5,000) with Five loaves and Two fishes…. there is a lesson;  God can turn little into abundance. if you look deeply you will notice that the food was a need in that present time i.e. what ever the case might be Jesus is creative enough and mighty enough to improvise, augment, transform for your sake. Jesus blessed the food and abundance followed.

The waiting process sometimes is terrifying but there is always a response, we are citizens of heaven on assignment on the earth because he has made us witnesses and our life must glorify him who sent us he would not live us stranded, i turned not to God out of religious inheritance or by the reason of birth into a straight laced christian home but by the fact that when i needed response in my time of need, emptiness there was a deafening silence on different occasions from all dimensions of life, God intervened and he made know it was only him endued with power to deliver, this reaffirms the words of the most productive book in the world the “bible”  …No man receives anything except giving to him by the father” because in my uncertainty he has given me  unparalleled victory.    I might forget all but each time i remember how unworthy i am to have this provisions i stand Amazed and the fire is rekindled.

Prayer
I just pray that today and now God will be made strength in your weaknesses.
He will turn lack to abundance even before needs gets a name in your life… THANK YOU jESUS.

Reign in my vulnerability

From the genesis of my awakening and irreversible awareness of your existence, i am made to understand that you pull us strongly when we are vulnerable so that you become our strength in our vulnerable state…
Every Fear i have conquered was made possible through you, my victory is in you evidently, when people see me and see you in me i am filled with joy because it is a fulfillment of the scripture Gal 1:24 “And they glorified God in me.” And i am grateful for each redirection, for they are delightful and unforgettable, Psalm 119:24 “Thy testimonies are my delight and my counsellors”
