What standard of measure do you use? Are you a spoons size person; a cup size person; quart; gallon; barrel; tanker? The measurements keep going until you reach abundance size measurements. The reason I bring this up is because Jesus says in Luke 6:38 “ give and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure —- pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.“
We love the idea of a good measure pressed down shaken together and running over but we have to understand we are giving back to based on what we give out. What measurement are you using when you serve others, when you love others, when you forgive others, when you honor others? The injustice that most of us don’t recognize is that we expect more than we give, we expect people to serve us more than we’ve served others. The other challenge is, we will not reap until due season, therefore we have to keep giving, serving, loving, forgiving, honoring even when we don’t see a return. Because if you’re measurement is abundance that’s a lot of giving.
All I know is that if we keep doing good as the Lord had told us to do, even if you don’t see a return immediately, you will see it eventually according to the measure that you have measured it out. As for me and my house or measurement is abundance.
The Lord highlighted this morning the new day that is dawning. He had me look at the sun rising and said, “The sun of righteousness is rising with healing in its wings.” I knew that was a scripture, so looked it up and found it in Malachi 4:2. This new day that is breaking is coming with various kinds of healing. It will be a part of the new day not just a healing revival. The new day is multifaceted, but healing is paramount because “sick” people can’t hear God. Therefore, the Lord told me, “The healing is going to restore their hearing.”
The dawning of the new day is also going to deal with the wicked for there is about to be a land transfer from the wicked to the humble. Malachi 4:3 says, “You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the souls of your feet on the day which I am preparing, says the Lord of hosts.” Psalm 37:10-11 says, “Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there. But the humble will inherit the land And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.” This new day healing the people and healing the land. It’s going to be an amazing day!
I see a class of leaders arising who will not make God small so people can understand Him. They will make people big so they have the capacity to comprehend God. As these leaders continue to magnify the Lord in His holiness, righteousness, faithfulness, and lovingkindness, the people will mature into the majesty of God.
These leaders will live with open hands and open hearts for they have seen the eternal God and they know their temporal understanding is incomplete. They don’t lock into one message, one idea, one revelation, one destination. They swim in the deep waters of God’s river and let his current carry them wherever it will. They trust God, God knows them, and together they move with the rhythm of his roar.
Psalm 36:8 “They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.”
We are about to witness, testify to and experience the boomerang effect. While praying Psalm 35 this morning the Lord showed me the boomerang effect when David said, “Let destruction come upon him unawares,
And let the net which he hid catch himself; Into that very destruction let him fall.” (Psalm 36:8)
The Lord said, the boomerang effect is going to take everything the enemy planned, prepared and plotted against God’s people and it will boomerang on him. The Lord also said, the boomer effect is about to activate seed that has been sown. For the boomerang effect is the law of sowing and reaping.
“Do not be deceived. God cannot be mocked. Whatsoever a man sows that he shall reap.” (Galatians 6:7). This is the boomerang effect that is about to hit both the enemy and the seed we have sown. Get ready for you and I are about to see God’s boomerang effect!
