There is a song by one of my favorite gospel artists, Tasha Page Leonard, entitled, "Getting Ready". The song eloquently yet powerfully begins by saying, "Eyes haven't seen and ears haven't seen the kind of the blessings that's about to fall on me. God is doing a new thing............I'm getting ready to see something I have never seen. Kicking DEFEAT OUT OF THE DOOR. I'm GETTING READY FOR OVERFLOW." There is a special sister in my life who always asks me this very simple question, " Are you ready for overflow?" I began to laugh and literally scream to the top of my voice, " Yes, God I am so ready for the overflow!!!" She truly has no idea just how ready I AM!
Have you ever watched someone pouring a glass of water not really paying attention to when the glass is completely full. What happens? There is an overflow of water spilled everywhere. The water wiggles it's way through crevices, spills on you, splashes on the person sitting beside you, and in places you didn't even know water can possibly go. This is the same in our lives. We serve a God who doesn't play favorites, HE LOVES US, WE ARE HIS! Therefore, he doesn't decide to bless this one, yet overlook others. His timing is perfect, and in the words of my beloved grandmother HE's always on time.
You may say right now I do not see any evidence of overflow anywhere in my life. I have obstacles, trials, and survival is more in my vocabulary than OVERFLOW. Yes, trials will come, setbacks, and hindrances too. Yet, the God I know and serve can turn a complete mess into a Message that will touch the world. He can turn an impossible situation into a situation with more possibilities than ever imagined! HE truly can give you Beauty for Ashes.
For me even as I write this, I am going through a season of uncertainties, a season of making strategic changes that could be life changing, and a season where there are tears of joy but also tears of crying out to the HEAVENLY FATHER for answers. So, what am I choosing to do? I am trusting the process, praying, planning, and knowing HE LOVES ME. We are on the journey together. This simply means we pray for each other , intercede for one another, and you know what my favorite thing to say is, "CELEBRATE AS YOU BEGIN TO SEE THE AWESOME POWER OF GOD GIVE THE OVERFLOW OF ABUNDANCE OF BLESSINGS IN SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE!!!" We can't get weary, even when we are exhausted. We have to continue to Beleive God is doing a new thing in our lives, Get Ready for Overflow!! No matter your situation, know it's not over unitl God says it's over. Case closed------God has the FINAL SAY!
My Prayer for You.............
God I come to you not knowing what my my brother or sister may be in need of
But God you know, you know their every heart's desire, their dreams, and their petitions they have not shared with a living soul.
God, I declare blessings over their lives, the lives of their loved ones, and over unsaved loved ones.
God, I speak to those dead places in their lives that they feel can not be resurrected,
God you are all-knowing, powerful, and mighty------Reach into the darkest of places of their lives to let them know You are God Alone.
Embrace them with your love, your peace, your joy
I declare an Overflow in their health, businesses, marriages, finances, families, spiritual walk with you, prayer life, and even those desires that are dormant within them
I DECLARE AN OVERFLOW IN EVERY AREA OF THEIR LIVES
GOD BLOW THEIR MIND, LET THEM NOT GIVE UP ON THE JOURNEY
GOD PREPARE THEM FOR OVERFLOW!
WE GIVE YOU ALL THE PRAISE; BECAUSE WE KNOW EVEN WHEN WE ARE SLEEPING YOU ARE WORKING ON OUR BEHALF.
WE ARE READY FOR OVERFLOW
