1Peter 1:8 (KJV), “… joy unspeakable and full of glory: ”
When you are in this place of attitude, you will be able to lift yourself above any circumstance. However, always be mindful of God's plan for your life. To demonstrate our trust and love for Him, we should leave our plans untouched. Always allowing His Spirit to flow through us, we can demonstrate that we are men and women “filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:19 KJV). With this same attitude, we will be able to recognize that it is not our gifts and abilities that qualify us to do anything, but it will be our desire toward Him to follow His plan.
Being in the right place
Believers must understand that the Lord wants to bring them into a place where they never need, under any circumstance, go outside of His Word for anything. God is longing for His people to want much more of Him, as only He can satisfy (2 Peter 1:3 and Ephesians 3: 20 KJV). You will find there will be nothing that will satisfy the people of God but His Word. In His Word, He has a unique way of satisfying His people in a depth where they will never go away without their needs being meet (“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus,” Philippians 4:19 KJV). The Son came only to sharpen our image of Him.
Be open for God to move you into a place where there is a type of fullness that cannot be measured. Let’s take note that everything has been put under Him (Ephesians 1:22 KJV), and that He is the center of all things. God wants us to live in a place of yielding to Him through a discipline of studying, reading and meditating on His Word. The more you read and hear the Word of God, your confidence will increase, and then you will have what you say (Romans 10:17 and Mark 11:24 KJV). Therefore, if you have not yet begun by developing a habit of spending time in worship and praise on a daily basis, you cannot experience more of Him. God is looking for ordinary people so He can prepare them to do extraordinary things to change the world.
Your authority in Christ
Believers must understand that they have authority in the spiritual realm which affects what we see in the earthly realm. Those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ should understand that they have authority in this earthly realm to bind, loose and touch in agreement: “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 18:18-19 KJV).
In Matthew 28:18 (KJV), Jesus said, “ ... All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Jesus has given this authority to us, His followers, according to Luke 9:1-2 (KJV), “Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.”
