sunny dandelion seedThis week I read a word by Chuck Pierce that took me back to an awesome time in my life. The word said; I hear The Lord saying to us: increase your voltage capacity because your current capacity for my Glory will be overloaded by the power surge that’s coming!

Several years ago, about fifteen I think, it was my last day at Norvel Hayes Ministries. They had called me up during the service for prayer and a blessing as they were sending me out. Zona prayed in the Spirit over me and Ryan LeStrange gave the interpretation.

Ryan said that God was taking me into an intimate time with Him, a season where it would be just me and God. He said the reason God was doing this was because I must increase my capacity to receive. He said I must prepare myself to receive all God had for me.

At the time, I thought ‘that’s silly; I am ready for whatever God wants to pour on me.’ What I later discovered was that the things God wanted to give me were much bigger than I could imagine and I was not prepared to receive a blessing that awesome, therefore, I had to enlarge my capacity to receive. It was like my faith was at level 6 and He wanted to give me level 20 blessings so my faith had to increase to receive it. Think about it, if you are going to give your child a bicycle for Christmas, you won’t try to put it in a shirt box will you? Of course not you will have to get something large enough to contain it. Faith and blessings work the same way, your faith has to be large enough to receive your blessings. So, how do you enlarge your capacity to receive? Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Get in the word of God and build up your faith, increase your faith level.

During that time I spent my days in the word, in prayer and in worship. Day by day my faith grew. Day by day I increased my capacity to receive and when my capacity was large enough, God poured out His blessings on me. It was an awesome time! I would not have missed that time for anything AND if I had not enlarged my capacity to receive, I would have missed it – or at the very least, I would not have been able to receive ALL God had for me. It took time for me to arrive at the place where I was able to receive all He had. Speaking of time…

I once heard Denise Renner preach on ‘What time is it?’ Her message talked about when Jesus was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane and He asked three of the disciples to pray with Him, but they fell asleep. Then Jesus came back and asked them again to pray with Him, but again, they fell asleep. The final time Jesus came to them He said, never mind, go on back to sleep, it is too late. Imagine being able to minister to Jesus in His most distressing hour only to find that it is now too late.
I know we don’t like to think about it, because the God we serve is merciful, but there are times when a blessing passes us by because we are not ready and we find that once we get ready…it’s too late…He has already passed by. I don’t want to miss one thing that God has for me and I am so thankful that He warns me when He sees that I am unprepared. It’s time to wake up and get prepared! It’s not time to slumber. And being prepared could be as simple as increasing your capacity to receive.

I know you are probably like me and you think you are ready to receive anything God has for you, but just like I was back then, you could be wrong. If I were you, I would do as I am doing every day, I would work toward enlarging my capacity to receive. I would ask God what He would have me do to enlarge my capacity to receive.

As the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 2:9; “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”

I was writing this when I received an email from someone telling me what Kim Clement was saying in this season as well, and I have to share it with you; Kim Clement is saying UNIMAGINABLE FAVOR! He said – We have entered a time of our greatest favor EVER – in the heart of God – it is going to be unprecedented favor. God and man, finance and property, kings and princes and over your enemies. It is not earth bound – it is from heaven to earth. Make space for the blessing.

Make space for the blessing – it is not earth bound, it is according to His riches in glory size blessing – make room for it – enlarge your capacity to receive it today!

Today I encourage you to enlarge your capacity to receive, prepare yourself to receive ALL God has for you, for according to His word, it is unimaginable! Don’t miss it!
