God WILL Open the Windows of Heaven

The New Testament is filled with promises proving God loves to over-answer the
prayers of His people!

One of the most familiar promises of all is Ephesians 3:20. We all know it well

yet few of us live as if we believe it. “Now to Him who is able to do

exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power

that works in us.”

God is able to answer our prayers but He wants to do for us exceedingly above

all we can even imagine! He wants to answer us not according to our puny

requests, but according to His riches and might.

The Bible tells us He is inclined to answer us with abundance: “Give, and it

will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running

over” (Luke 6:38).

“But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered

into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love

Him.’ But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit” (1 Corinthians

2:9-10).

“By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that

through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the

corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:4).

“[Trust] . . . in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy”

(1 Timothy 6:17).

God is virtually begging us to ask for great things!

We like to call the Lord “our King” but do we pray large prayers worthy of

our King’s greatness? A king is obligated to care for his subjects, and his

people honor him by asking largely, believing he has all they need and will

provide it abundantly. Dearly beloved, you cannot call God “king” and then

accuse Him of letting one of His subjects continue in need!

Have you embarrassed God by your puny requests? “‘Prove Me now in this,’

says the Lord of hosts, ‘If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and

pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive

it’” (Malachi 3:10).

David Wilkerson is the author of this, not I, but I read this and thought,

"It's good to be reminded of all the blessings God has for us", so I wanted to share

this with you.

That last one, Mal 3:10 is THE one and only time in scripture that God gives us permission

to prove Him!  God is so good.

I have seen too many believers in Christ falling into the trap of practicing "Christianized New Age" and still calling it holy. Contemplative prayer is nothing more ( or less) than TM. Totally unscriptural. I encourage anyone who's interested in knowing the truth of God's word to dig in daily and SEARCH - be like the Bereans - FIND OUT if the teachings, messages, books you've read or radio speakers you've heard are dissecting God's word correctly. If they're not, throw out what you've heard. Trash it. God demands we STUDY to show ourselves approved. BE a Berean. Acts 17: 10-11
