Possess Your Overflow: Believe Before You see!!
Faith pleases God. Nothing makes God more joyful than Him looking down the pavilions of heaven and beholding his children believing. Dr. Mike Murdock says that faith pleasures Gods heart. Most children of God abort their overflow through unbelief and faithlessness. They usually get excited when a preacher excites them with the promises of God from the bible, but they don’t follow through to build a faith of their own for the promise. It is not enough to be intellectually aware of the overflow that God has promised, you have to believe it in your heart. You have to be thoroughly convinced in your heart that God wants you to walk in overflow.
One of the best ways to forge an overflow faith for an overflow experience is to befriend the word of God. Eat it, drink it, breathe it and do all you can to keep hearing Gods word. Nothing will empower and en – fire your faith for Gods promise of overflow more than your proximity to Gods word. The further you are from Gods word, the frailer you will become in your faith. Frail faith will eventually derail you from the path of obtaining the fullness of Gods promise of overflow.
I encourage you to go back to the notes that have been preached on overflow by myself and other ministers that have ministered in our services. Buy the DVDs and listen to them. Remember that repetition reinforces faith. Get the notebook where you write notes in church and re read them. Re-read the verses again. Reflect on them and see how they apply to your life and circumstances. The more you engage in the word, the more your expectation will grow and the more your expectation grows, the larger your manifestation will be. Be a man or woman of Gods word and you will begin believing in the overflow even before you see it. Remember in Gods kingdom, you don’t have to see it to believe it, its when you believe it that you will end up seeing it.
A Scripture to Remember.
“It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak – 2nd Corinthians 4:13.
An assignment to pray about and work through.
Evaluate your life and see locate places where there has been barrenness. Prophesy abundance to those areas and make bold confessions that there will be progress and increase in those areas. Write down verses that speak on Gods commitment to prosper you in those areas and speak them boldly until you see a change. Don’t get tired of prophesying to those situations until you see a turnaround.
