The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22 KJV
May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]. 17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, 18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; 19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! 20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]. Ephesians 3:16-20 AMPC
1. Excessive blessings are available to us, by His power, for His purpose.
a. The blessing of the Lord, it makes rich and the Lord does not add sorrow with it. Do not add the sorrow yourself –stay balanced – do not love money.
b. He grants you out of His rich treasury of His glory. There is no lack in Heaven. Heaven is not running short. He is El Shaddai, not El Cheapo.
c. Let the Holy Spirit have free reign to indwell your innermost being and personality. Let God have and be in control. Excessive blessings come in your submission.
d. God is love and everything that we do must come out of our love relationship with Him. Always examine your motives and intent.
e. Hunger and thirst for God and be filled with His divine presence. Become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself.
f. According to His power that is at work within us, our perspective changes – we have Heaven’s perspective. We see things from a different view. All of our natural limitations are gone.
g. God lives in you. He is so big; do not think small. Your natural, with God, becomes the supernatural.
h. You can and will carry out His purpose, by His power, and do superabundantly, far over and above all that you dare ask or think infinitely beyond your highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams.
i.You must make His purpose your purpose, on purpose, for Kingdom service.
