Matt.7:7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
God specializes in surplus and this is consistent with scriptures.
- Surplus Provision: 2 Cor. 9:8 “And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.” The Voice Translation puts it this way, “God is ready to overwhelm you with more blessings than you could ever imagine so that you’ll always be taken care of in every way and you’ll have more than enough to share.” You will always have plenty and more than enough to share with the people in your life.
- Surplus Joy, Peace and Hope: Rom.15:13 “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” The Voice Translation puts it this way, “I pray that God, the source of all hope, will infuse your lives with an abundance of joy and peace in the midst of your faith so that your hope will overflow through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
- God’s Trademark is Surplus: Eph.3:20 “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” God can do and will do infinitely more than you can ask, or think, or imagine. Beginning from today, in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, there will be no lack in your life. This seemingly unending state of “just-getting-by” will come to an end in Jesus Name. Everything you ask God for today, He will give you infinitely more. However, there are some things that God should not give you infinitely more of. If you ask for one, He will give you one and it will be infinitely better. If you ask for a wife, God will not give you two. So please do not start expecting two wives. God will give you one wife with infinite abilities. I declare that you will not know lack anymore, in Jesus Name.
Note that there are three times that God will not supply. There first time that God will not supply is when it is time to go home. The Bible tells us that Elisha was deathly ill. When it is time to go home, God will not supply healing. We will pick up from here in tomorrow’s devotional.
