“Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen.”
Ephesians 3:20-21 AMP

I WAS PRAYING AND ASKING FOR GODS DIRECTION I GOT A REAL SENSE OF HIS PRESENCE WITH THIS SERIES. THIS WHOLE TIME WITH THE CORONA VIRUS AND OUR WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN WE HAVE SEEN SO MANY LIMITATION PUT ON US A NATION, AS AN INDIVIDUAL, AS A CHURCH AND CHRISTIAN.

I SEE THIS SPIRIT TRYING TO MINIMIZE OUR GOD, OUR POWER, OUR HOPE, OUR JOY, OUR DREAMS, OUR INFLUENCE.

WE HAVE SEEN OUR WORLD, LIVES, CHURCH LOCKED UP AND CONTROLLED WITH LIMITATIONS. MANY THINGS WE CONSIDERED TO BE PART OF OUR FREEDOMS ARE BEING CHALLENGED TODAY.

THIS WHOLE CRISIS I AM REMINDED OF THIS THOUGHT, “LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMER.” It is toilet paper, wipes, sanitizer, now meat, milk, etc.

Many people have begun to feel boxed in, pressured into settling, many giving up. Many people are tired of the struggle, emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually.

We have been knocked down but we must get back up. We must prevail.

This Crisis has done a lot of harm and damage, but it has also showed us things too. I believe it has opened many eyes to how fragile life is and far we drifted away from the most important things ever. God, family, health are on the rise now.

My prayer is God rise up in you. God rise up in your family. God rise up in your health.

CHRIST OVER THE CRISIS.
CHRIST OVER THE CRISIS.
CHRIST OVER THE CRISIS.
CHRIST OVER THE CRISIS.

Our faith is limitless in the fact it comes from our God who is ETERNAL, All POWERFUL, ALL KNOWING, THE CREATOR OF EVERYTHING.

THIS CRISIS HAS CHALLENGED MANY TO SEE WHERE THEIR FAITH REALLY IS. SEEING THAT YOU ARE NOT AS FAITH FILLED AS YOU THINK IS NOT A BAD THING.

WE WILL NEVER GROW OR IMPROVE IN OUR WALK IF WE BELIEVE WE GOT IT ALL TOGETHER. DENIAL ONLY FOOLS YOU, BECAUSE THOSE AROUND YOU CAN SEE YOUR WEAKNESS AND WHERE YOU ARE LACKING.

THIS CRISIS REVEALED MORE PEOPLE ARE CONTROLLED BY FEAR THAN FAITH. THIS CRISIS REVEALED OUR PATIENCE LEVELS. THIS CRISIS REVEALED OUR THINGS ANOUT OUR CHARACTER AND NOT THE GREAT SIDE.

I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF THE RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITS PLACED ON US. I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF IT. I GOT SO MAD BECAUSE OTHER CHURCHES ARE OPENING ANYWAY. I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF NOT BEING ABLE TO MEET WITH EVERYONE.

THE OTHER DAY I WAS ANGRY THAT OUR STATE DID NOT OPEN UP MAY 1ST.

THEN I REMEMBER GODS WORD, OBEY THOSE WHO ARE IN AUTHORITY. GOD WROTE IT FOR A REASON. I CAN NOT LOOSE MY JOY OR PEACE BECAUSE OF OTHERS CHOICES.

OUR GOD IS LIMITLESS. OUR FAITH CAN BE ALSO WHEN WE STEP INTO HIS PRESENCE.

OUR FAITH IS NOTHING WITHOUT GOD. OUR FAITH IS ONLY ALIVE WHEN WE ARE CONNECTED TO THE SOURCE OF FAITH.

GOD IS THE SOURCE OF FAITH. ITS LIKE POWER IN YOUR HOUSE. THE POWER SOURCE IS GOD. YOU HAVE BREAKER BOXES AND SWITCHES AND PLUG INS. ALL OF THE CIRCUITS MUST BE LIVE AND ON FOR THE POWER TO FLOW THRU YOUR HOUSE AND LIFE.
Ephesians 3:20.

Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than,”

This is an amazing picture of our God. HE IS ABLE. HE IS ABLE. IT IS ALL ABOUT HIS POWER FIRST. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY REAL POWER UNTILL WE GET CONNECTED AND PLUGGED INTO OUR GOD. HIS POWER, HIS FAITH CAN FLOW THRU US.

With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine.”
Ephesians 3:20 NCV

Gods mission is not complete unless we connect and get plugged into our God so His Power, His Love, His Hope, His Faith, His Purpose can flow thru us to others.

I feel this Crisis challenge is trying to restrict and limit us in our faith and power. Our power, our hope, our faith is limited or limitless based on our beliefs.

“My dear children, you belong to God and have defeated them; because God’s Spirit, who is in you, is greater than the devil, who is in the world.”
1 John 4:4 NCV

Remember WHO YOU BELONG TO. WE THAT BELONG TO GOD HAVE THE RIGHT TO VICTORY. VICTORY IS OURS BY RIGHT. WE WHO BELONG TO GOD HAVE THE RIGHT TO

VICTORY. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO JOY. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO POWER. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO HEALING. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO PEACE. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROSPERITY. WE HAVE THE RIGHT FOR LOVE.

WE MUST REMEMBER WHO WE BELONG TO.

What then shall we say to all these things? If God is for us, who can be [successful] against us?”
Romans 8:31 AMP

IF GOD IS FOR US WHO CAN BE AGAINST US. GOD IS FOR YOU WHEN YOU BELONG TO HIM. HE IS OUR FATHER, HE IS OUR SAVIOR.

IF GOD IS FOR ME, FEAR CAN NOT BE SUCCESSFUL AGAINST ME. IF GOD IS FOR ME, DISEASE CAN NOT BE AGAINST ME. IF GOD IS FOR ME, LACK CAN NOT BE AGAINST ME.

GODS PEOPLE THROUGH OUT HISTORY HAVE FACED CHALLENGES THAT IN THE HUMAN REALM WHERE IMPOSSIBLE BUT IN GOD THEY ARE POSSIBLE.

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With people [as far as it depends on them] it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.””
Matthew 19:26 AMP

OUR LIMITS IN FAITH COME FROM WHO OR WHAT WE ALLOW TO FLOW THRU US. FEAR OR FAITH OR DOUBTS, WORRIES, AND UNBELIEF.

DAVID SHOWED UP TO A SCENE, WARRIORS AFRAID AND IMMOBILIZED BECAUSE OF A GIANT NAMED GOLIATH. IN THE NATURAL HE IS BIGGER, STRONGER AND BY FAR MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY ONE INCLUDING KING SAUL.

DAIVID SHOWED UP, HE IS NOT A WARRIOR, HE IS NOT EVEN A FULL GROWN MAN. HE SHOWS UP TO A WAR NOT BEING A WARRIOR BUT HE WAS A WORSHIPPER, HE KNEW WHO HE BELONGED TO. HE KNEW THE POWER OF HIS GOD. HE COULD FIGHT, HE HAD SMALLER VICTORIES IN GOD. HE REMINDED HIMSELF AND OTHERS OF HIS PAST GOD VICTORIES.

WHEN YOU ARE FACING THE IMPOSSIBLE MOST PEOPLE REMIND THEMSELVES WHAT THEY COULD LOOSE. THEY REMIND THEMSELVES HOW THEY ARE STRONG ENOUGH OR QUALIFIED TO WIN. WE REMIND OURSELVES OF OUR WEAKNESS INSTEAD OF OUR GOD AND HIS STRENGTHS.

If God is for us, who or what can be [successful] against us?”
Romans 8:31 AMP

We must speak, think, dwell on these words when we are facing our giants.

“Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us,”
Ephesians 3:20 AMP

God our God can so much more for us than we could ask, think, pray, hope, or even dreams. He is saying I AM LIMITLESS. THE POWER I HAVE AVAILABLE TO AND FOR YOU IS LIMITLESS. WHAT I WANT FOR YOU IS SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU COULD FATHOM.

HERE IS THE CONNECT OR DISCONNECT, “ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT IS AT WORK WITHIN US.”
