His EXceeding Abundance

In the book of Ephesians 3:20, two clear secrets were revealed
~ God has the ability to do beyond the human imagination [divine provisioning].
~ His ability to perform is in accordance to the presence of His power at work in a believer.
"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us," - Ephesians 3:20
This implies that God's power needs to be fully made manifest in the life of a believer before there can be an experience of His divine abundance.
What is God's power?
God's power is the manifestation of His personality, through Christ(The Living Word-John 1(:14)), by the Holy Spirit.
Romans 1:16-17 gives an insight to the power of God as being the gospel of Christ (The Word) which reveals His righteosness.
_v16 >> For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation...v17>>>For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith...
The revelation behind the scripture:
An evidence of God's power in a believer is first His righteousness, which draws in His abundance accordingly. In Matthew 6:33, Jesus confirms that.
Qs:
Have I yielded to God to take/have preeminence in my life?
Key:
His exceeding abundance does not operate (or actualize) outside His power in you.
Note:
His exceeding abundance is not limited to needs/wants. The bible says "...above all you ask or think". Speak His Word, Meditate on His Word, Manifest His purpose.
Remain forever blessed.

Psalm 91: A Guaranteed Refuge 1

Psalm 91 [short series]. Psalm 91 is a commonly known Psalm that often raises doubts (e.g. Does it really apply to our present realities?), gets misinterpreted (e.g. If you trust God, no trouble will come to you) or gets undermined (e.g. It’s all a metaphor). But the message in the Psalm is such a profound encouragement to keep trusting in God because of the kind of refuge that only He can provide. As we will see in a 4 part study, the Psalm shows us why God is the only refuge you can trust (v2), and this is because: His refuge is guaranteed By His greatness: He can. v1, 11-12 By His promise: He will. v4, 14-16 His refuge is complete Through this life. v3-6, 13 Into the next life. v7-10, 16 His Refuge is guaranteed by His Greatness! Psalm 91:1, 11-12 He can always rescue! T

Eternal life is sacrificially following

Matthew 19:16-28. One of my favourite kids' exercises is the marshmallow test. Kids are given a marshmallow and left in a room. If they can wait for some time, they get more. You see kids staring, sniffing, poking and doing all sorts to the marshmallow. The point is to teach kids to wait for a better reward in the face of instant gratification. In the passage, Jesus gives a marshmallow test to a rich man, and he begins sniffing, poking - he gets sad! And it also made Jesus' disciples greatly astonished. Why was this? Because the gospel pattern of life will always look nothing like what the world calls living. Eternal life looks like sacrifice in the now for a future reward! A Present Sacrifice. (16-26) The rich man asks what good thing he must do to have eternal life (16). Jesus responds: only God is good; keep His commands (17). But the man replies, (paraphrased) "I am good too" wit

Psalm 91: A Complete Refuge 3

Psalm 91 [short series]. As we journey through life, sometimes we go through troubles beyond our control — an addiction, sudden financial lack, sickness, broken relationship, losing a loved one, a hope deferred. How do we navigate those seasons? Or maybe you are currently in such a season and wondering, "How do I live through this?" Previously [1] [2] , we saw that God's refuge is guaranteed. The Psalm also shows the completeness of God's refuge as a reason for how we can navigate the seasons of life. His Refuge is complete through this life! Psalm 91:3-6, 13 God rescues you from troubles beyond your reach and permanently deals with the cause of all problems, Satan himself. His refuge deals with: Sin: snare of the fowler (v3, 11-12) Snares are traps used to catch animals, often made with something enticing or luring, like a cheese trap for a
