You know that change has to happen at different times in your life. It’s necessary so you can get into the position that God has for you and so you can see something better form in your life. Without change, conditions or circumstances cannot become better. So if you’ve been crying out for God to do something different for you, now is the time to see it happen. As He introduces change to you, cooperate with it. Then see what it produces.
Psalm 66:3 says, How awesome and fearfully glorious are Your works! That’s what you can see God do in your life. Awesome works.
When He starts revealing to you what He can do, it will be more than you can ask! That’s how He wants to affect your life. More than you even ask Him to do. A Partner of this ministry was telling us how God did this for her. She wrote and said, “I want you to praise God with me. I requested in the past for you to pray for my marriage, and God’s healing it! He has also healed me significantly of depression. I’m so grateful to Him.” That’s how we become—grateful to God because He goes beyond and gives us more than we ask. Not only was her marriage healed, but her mind and emotions were delivered from depression.
He’s a supernatural God, and He does supernatural things to put us in awe of Him. He wants to do things that make you go, “Wow! That’s awesome! It’s beyond what I expected!” You experience the hand of God moving and doing something for you. It draws you near to Him and you start getting just a fraction of a sense of how it is to serve the One who is beyond what you can imagine. That same God is working in your behalf and cares for you. That’s why He performs things that make you awestruck. He wants you to feel how much He cares for you and what He can do.
You will be at a loss for words. Haven’t you ever been at a loss for words because of the beauty of what God did for you? Has it brought you to tears when you’ve worked hard and struggled, then a great answer comes your way? A blessing? That’s God entering into your life in a personal way. Those are the times when you need to remember how awestruck you were by what He did. That will give you faith to believe He’s going to do more than you ask for what you’re facing now.
That’s how Abraham and Sarah felt in the Bible when they were awestruck by what God did. They didn’t have any children. Then one day God promised to bless them, but not with just a child. He told Abraham to take a look at the stars above because they could not be numbered. As he saw them, God said that was how many descendents would come from them. A great heritage. They would be blessed. Abraham and Sarah just wanted to have a kid, but they get a covenant too. A covenant of blessing. It was more than they could ask. (Ref. Genesis 13.)
And what about the woman who saw God do something awesome after she helped the prophet, Elisha. This woman had a room built to take care of the Elisha because she knew he was doing God’s work. So he prayed to God to give her a child when her husband was too old to have children. She was given a son. This woman just wanted to help in God’s work, but her heart’s desire for a family was fulfilled. It was more than she could ask. (Ref. II Kings 4.)
Then there’s the story about Peter. He and his fishing partners had been out all night fishing to earn their income. But they caught nothing. When Jesus borrowed their boat, He showed them how to catch so many fish that their big strong fishing nets were about to break. Peter was just giving his boat to Jesus to use for short time, but he received a boost in his business and a calling to follow Jesus. It was more than he could ask. (Ref. Luke 5.)
And there is the man, Cornelius. He was faithfully praying and giving into God’s work. By now Peter had become an apostle and was given a vision from God to go to the house of Cornelius and give him the gospel message of Jesus Christ the Messiah. When he did, the entire household heard it and was converted. Cornelius just wanted to get nearer to God and obey Him with his giving, but his entire household experienced salvation. It was more than he could ask. (Ref. Acts 10.)
I could go on and on about how people became awestruck when God did more for them than they could ask. But now let’s add you to this list. It’s time for you to be awestruck. It’s time for you to receive more than you ask.
God wants to bring you to the place where you are at a loss for words. About all you can say is, “Awesome!” I know you’re ready for that. So believe that’s why He’s coming to you now in this moment. He’s telling you what kind of God He is. He wants to show you His tremendous goodness. It’s all operating in your favor. So take God at His Word. Get into the flow of how His Spirit is about to move in your life.
