But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. – 1 Corinthians 2:9
God definitely has something big in stock for us and it’s far bigger than you can ever imagine. Your present situation may not look like God’s promises to you but it doesn’t change the fact that those promises are there.
You will recall that God promised to make Joseph great through a dream that showed his brothers and parents bowing to him. All the promises to him were great but the circumstances he went through did not look like what God promised. In fact, it looked like what God promised will never come to pass.
If there is anything God has promised, he will do it and do much more than you can imagine. The important part you also need to note is that he will not do it in the ways that you imagine. Ephesians 3:20 says, ‘Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us…’
Let’s also remember it was God’s word that said, ‘For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God’ in Romans 8:19. This is like saying the people are waiting for your bursting out. If God’s word says that the people are waiting for your bursting out, nothing can change it or stop it. You will definitely burst out as it has been said in the word of God.
Our anchor scripture for the month which is taken from the book of Isaiah 43:19 shows us God’s promise to do a new thing. If God promised he will do a new thing, that new thing will be done and in God’s time. No devil in hell can stop what God wants to do and it will spring forth.
The good part is that what God wants to do will not just spring forth, it will be mind blowing. When you look at that Isaiah 43:19 very well, God says, ‘I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.’ Naturally speaking, those are impossible things to talk about. You can’t be talking of making a way in the wilderness but God will do that. It simply means the bursting out we are talking about will be beyond what your natural mind can figure out.
Where you think God will give you the long overdue promotion and you’re just okay with that, God just shows up and gives you double promotion with full entitlements. Where you’re hoping for just a husband, God shows up with a husband that seems unbelievable because he’s going to be a total package – He’s God fearing, handsome, rich and purposeful. Where you want a wife, God says I’ll give you more than a wife. He shows up with a beautiful, resilient, caring and visionary wife.
Some parents are just hoping it would be alright if they can manage to see their children through school but God says those children will not just make it through school, they will become great in the society. Your children will become so great that by the time you see their greatness, you will say it can only be God.
When God promises you something, don’t expect something little. God will definitely blow your mind with what he will do when compared with what you are expecting. I pray that from today, you will have positively mind blowing experiences in Jesus name.
