Getting Out Beyond Our Comfort Zone
Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, (Ephesians 3:20 AMP)
God is speaking to the Church to get us out of our comfort zone. He desires to take us beyond what we can think and do in our own natural ability into something only He can do. I believe almost every person in the body of Christ can think “millionaire” and how it could possibly happen to them. They might envision winning a sweepstakes, or being on a television show like “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.”
In other words, lots of people, even those not born again, believe that they could one day get “lucky.” That it is possible for them to win something big in their lifetime. That’s why the lotto is so popular. People who don’t know God think to become a millionaire is somehow remotely possible. But to be a billionaire? No way! Even in the Church, your chances of finding someone who feels they can ever reach billionaire status in their lifetime is way beyond what they will even attempt to think.
Realize, however, billions is what it is going to take to complete the work the Lord has sent us into the world to do. The people of God not only have the right to it, but the responsibility to possess it with a passion and commitment that won’t stop until the job gets done!
Dear God, I desire to be faithful to do the work You’ve called me to do in this season. Thank you for giving me the passion and commitment to fulfill Your plan with excellence and joy. I believe I receive every resource and financial blessing that is needed to complete the job. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
