GOD OF BETTER THINGS
- He has decreed that we shall change from glory to glory. Capitalize on this. Whenever you find yourself stagnating, take it up, don’t park, don’t rationalize it. Get angry in spirit; know that stagnation is not the perfect will of God for you. Provoke God into your battles and if you know the restitution you need to make, go ahead and make it; look inwards first. Don’t always rush to the conclusion that your problem is external. God can step into your situation and turn the circumstances around and give you a new song. Prov. 4:18, “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect noon day”. 2 Cor. 3:18, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of transformation, transforming from one level of glory to another. The Bible says, “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”. 2 Cor. 3:17. The spirit of God is the spirit of total liberation. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of deliverance. If the enemy has put you in bondage of captivity where he wants to lock you up, the power of the Holy Spirit will shatter that padlock and you will get to greater heights. There is not enough padlock in the world that can stop you from getting to where God wants you to reach if you tap into the resources made available in his word.
- He lavishes his grace upon us to make things increasingly better for us. Progress is a sign that there is life; increase is a sign that there is growth. Growth is a sign that there is life. That is why you must increase. The Bible says, the Lord will increase us more and more (Psa. 115:14), he will multiply us and we shall not be few, he will glorify us and we shall not be small (Jer. 30:19) and that the Lord shall increase our greatness, and comfort us on every side (Psa. 71:21). These are some of the blessings that God has in store for us. 2 Cor. 9:8-9, “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever”. God wants you to have all sufficiency, so where is the place for lack? 2 Cor. 12:9, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me”.
This God is our God. Psa. 48:14, “For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death”. Eze. 36:9, “For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown”. If God be for you, who can be against you? God says, I am for you. Things will get better in your life in the name of Jesus. All that God needs from you is faith, total surrender and walking in wisdom and you will experience the fullness of God’s goodness and blessings and he will increase these more and more. God will make things better in your life and make better things for you in Jesus name.
