Why are we not asking of God the nations? Why are we not asking enough? I sort of realized that we have become mediocre and all we desire to do is to serve God but we haven’t taken the limit off our thinking.
In Ephesians 3: 20 the bible says “And Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” That means that our thinking is important to God so apart from your asking even your thinking is important to God. God can do exceeding abundantly. That means that we need to stretch our imaginations to be able to ask adequately from God. God says to us in the text we are using ask of me the nations. How many of you today has asked God for Nigeria,Ghana etc? How many business people are looking at expanding their businesses beyond their states. How many career or professionals are think of moving beyond nations or taking nations for their services? How come we just sit and we are comfortable with where we are meanwhile God has given us the charge to ask of him.
Today this season, this new month, I charge you to start to ask the impossible, start to stretch the impossible in your mind. Start to imagine the impossible. Start to want more as a child of God, a child of the King, a child of the Creator of the universe. Everything belongs to God. In Psalm 24: 1, the scripture say “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.” Why are we still limited in out asking. This is a new month, this is a new season We are a month away to the end of the year, start today to ask of God, start today to imagine the impossible. Don’t stay in the place where you are just managing. There’s nothing like managing in the kingdom of God. The bible says “the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12b). You must come to the place where you say “unless you bless me I won’t leave you”. Did you see what Jacob did to the angel when they met? He held him and said “unless you bless me I would not let you go”. So we must come out this month with the ability to stretch. No longer mediocre thinking, no longer saying “can this be?”. It can be because we have the Holy Spirit, we have the power of God working in us. When elevated in your place of work or you experience increase in your business, don’t allow mediocrity set in. Ask yourself, “God, what more can I do?”
