Usually when we are asking for something, we have an idea of how it might look and the way in which we think it should best come to us. Think of a Christmas list you have written, or being asked what you’d reeeeally like for your birthday? You get a taste of what you’d like to be given and then you kind of keep that thing in the back of your mind.
(And then if you were anything like me as a little kid, you’d write the list and stick it on your fridge for everyone to see, as well as placing extra copies in front of your parents. Come on.. you’ve gotta cover all bases right?)
But then, when it came time to receiving, how many times were you absolutely, totally and utterly blown away at how much more you received than you had even asked for?
A few weeks ago, I was praying and asking for wisdom in a certain area of my life, and waiting for direction on how best to move forward. After a few days, I realised I was actually trying to work it out myself. You know those times when you sort of think you might know how God will respond, and it’s almost like you begin to predict what He might do?! Anyway, I surrendered it to Him and waited patiently.
Two days ago our faithful God answered me, just as He always does. However in addition to answering my question, he proceded to bless me superabundantly more than I even asked for! That’s our God though! He’s the God of MORE than enough! He’s the God of superabundantly far over and above all we dare ask or think!
