The LORD has been talking to me recently about living in the overflow. The foundation scripture for this study is John 10:10 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition: “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”
The time has come for us to live on a higher dimension of God’s provision.
The time has come for us to live beyond paycheck to paycheck.
The time has come for us to give our tithes and offerings, pay all our bills and still have much left over at the end of the month.
I am releasing my faith with you right now for an overflowing harvest from your faithful commitment to EMIC. Pastor Terri and I are so thankful for you! We are believing for great abundance for you and your family. Leviticus 26:10 (NIV-84) declares, “You will still be eating last year’s harvest when you will have to move it out to make room for the new.”
Here is a confession of faith I have been speaking every day:
I am living in the overflow.
I have a surplus of prosperity.
I have more than enough.
I am blessed beyond measure.
My cup is running over.
I am furnished in abundance.
I receive multiple streams of income.
My storehouses are full and overflowing.
I am increasing more and more.
It is flood stage!
The floodgates of heaven are opened,
and THE BLESSING is pouring out.
There is not room enough to contain it all.
I am experiencing “THE BLESSING FLOOD!”
There is a promise in Malachi 3:10 that belongs to every tither. It says, “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith The LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”
I really like the New International Version: “…See if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” The Contemporary English Version says, “I will open the windows of heaven and flood you with blessing after blessing.”
I call this “THE BLESSING FLOOD.”
The word windows is from a Hebrew word that means “floodgates.” It is the same word used in Genesis 7:11: “The windows [floodgates] of heaven were opened.” It rained 40 days on the earth—so much that the waters finally topped out at more than 22 feet above the highest mountain. Now that’s a major flood!
That’s a picture of THE BLESSING FLOOD that God is pouring out over us.
See yourself being covered up with provision. See so much coming into your life that it is beyond measure. You won’t be able to keep up with the flood of blessing pouring out over you.
Ezekiel 34:26 is another example of THE BLESSING FLOOD: “And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.” This is not a light rain as religion has taught. The word shower is from a Hebrew word that means, “to pour down violently.” It is also defined as “a falling of things from the air in large quantities and in thick succession.”
Expect THE BLESSING FLOOD to completely cover you.
I once heard Oral Roberts say, “Not a trickle, not a stream, not a river but a flood! It’s flood stage!”
