Do you believe this week is going to be the best week of your life (so far)? Why not? The Bible does say that we are going from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:16). Ephesians 3:20 alone should sustain us throughout the coming week. Getting a revelation of what it means can change a sad day into party time, a dreadful week into a week of bliss and a frown into a smile. Ephesians 3:20 proclaims that “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” (Amplified version). God is able to do a lot more than you can imagine. His ability goes above and beyond what your mind can fathom. His reality is that He can a thousand more times more than you think He can do. Our reality is that we limit His ability with our mind and our thinking. How people do you know start the week expecting to blessed beyond measure? Most people either expect the worst or not much. They go through life content with the bare minimum they think they can get. We often have a “barely enough” mentality and God wants us to have a “‘more than enough” mentality. We need to learn to expect great things and not succumb to fear or to the superstition that if we expect good things we are somehow jinxing ourselves. I used to feel that way. I refused to think good things would happen because I thought I didn’t deserve them or bad luck would come and rob me of my imaginary blessings. If it’s hard for you to imagine what great things the Lord can provide this week, start small and focus on all the good things you already have. Think of one thing you can look forward to every day of this week. Then mention that one good thing in your prayers but first thanking the Lord for it and then by declaring that God will give you exceedingly more. Jesus can multiply your blessings and increase them. He is an expert at multiplying. Think of the time when He was ministering to a big crowd and He fed five thousand people with one loaf of bread and one fish. He prayed for the bread and fish and they were multiplied (Matthew 14:19-21). Jesus hasn’t changed. Our perception of who He is might be different from who He actually is but that doesn’t mean He is not a miracle worker and it doesn’t mean He can’t do the impossible. There is going to be multiplication of blessings this week so brace yourself because the Lord is good and His mercies endure forever (Psalm 136:1). A beautiful week is ahead of you. This is going to be a week to remember. Receive it in Jesus’ name and delight in His goodness. He is good all the time and He wants to prove it to you. Trust in Him. Give up control. Praise and worship Him this week. Enjoy His love and His favor. His blessings are up for grabs. Have a great best week ever!
