SEEK HIS FULLNESS – By Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Memory Verse: Ephesians 3:19:“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”
Read: Ephesians 3:16-21.
Ephesians 3:16-21:“That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; Ephesians That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Ephesians. 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, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. Ephesians 3:21”
Message:When you build up your spirit man and your relationship with the Holy Ghost, He will be able to use you to do the incredible. Stephen was an ordinary deacon but because he had built himself up in Christ, he was full of the Holy Spirit and power, with great signs and wonders coming out of him (Acts 6:5-8). It is what you have full of that will spill out because Matthew 12:34b says, “… out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.”
Many prayer effort amounts to wanting to give what you don’t have. If you are full of the Spirit, with little or no effort, you will birth signs and wonders. Many people are empty of the Spirit yet they want to birth signs and wonders. They will simply have disappointments. Do you know you can be filled with the fullness of God? (Ephesians 3:19). Why stay, live and minister empty of God when you can have all His fullness?
What is important with God is not how many years you have been born again but how close to Him you are. It is not what title you bear on earth but the title you are known by in Heaven. It is also not what position or ecclesiastical office you occupy but how full you are of His Spirit. If a week old believer is full of the Spirit, God will use him to do the incredible. Most people have misplaced priorities. They are busy struggling for money: in their dreams and thoughts, it is all about how to get money, yet they wonder why they are not seeing miracles through their lives and ministries. Others are busy struggling over positions and title as if these are what will give you the anointing. No! There are many pastors who got to the peak of their anointing on the day of their ordination. After their ordination, they went to sleep. No wonder workers who are not even ordained but are seeking for the fullness of the Spirit are more anointed than them. Stop fighting for what is not! Give your attention to seek more of Him. The more you have of His Spirit, the more like Him you will be in signs, wonders and character.
- Before you birth the supernatural, you must first conceive by the Holy Spirit.
