Topic: Enlarge Your Coast [TREM Devotional Monday June 18, 2018]
“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]” Ephesians 3:20 (AMP)
This is the time to enlarge your coast, lengthen your cords and stretch forth the curtains of your habitations. It is a new era. God is exceeding your imagination. You must make plans. In 1 Kings 17:12, the widow said “I have this small thing to eat and then die” and Elijah said “no, don’t make plans to die, make plans to live.” Your life is just about to start. No more dry season. It is a fruitful season. Everything you touch will be fruitful. It doesn’t matter what others are encountering, you are of a different stock. You belong to God. You won’t have dry season. Dry season for others, minus you! Praise God.
Woman, don’t plan to die, plan to live! And the interesting thing is that the woman did what the prophet of God said. She re-arranged her plan. She didn’t argue! Because when we read downwards the Bible declared that: “She went and did according to the saying of Elijah” (1 Kings 17:15 KJV). She re-arranged her plan. Rather than plan what she was going to eat by herself, she said, ‘set the table and seats, we are having a guest in our house.”
Child of God, take your eyes off yourself. Have the kingdom mentality and see God do beyond your expectation. One of the things that has been garaging the Body of Christ over the years is that we have been thinking too much about ourselves. There is no way you can think kingdom thoughts that God will not give you beyond your expectation. That is one of the secrets I have discovered. Anyone who has the kingdom agenda in his heart and mind never lacks.
