Over the weekend, I was listening to a message online. The speaker spoke something that struck my spirit and would not leave me. He said, “This month declare God is going to be EXTRAVAGRANT with you.”
I pondered this statement over and over. Consequently, the word, extravagant, kept coming up in things other people would say to me. Even in texts. I know how God speaks to me and I knew He was confirming this word to me.
I wrote those words on a post-it note and stuck it in front of me – so I would see it each time I looked up.
Even when I first heard it, I declared, “I am taking that Word as mine and I am sowing a seed into it.” Which I did.
Day after day that word came up in many conversations and correspondence I was receiving. God was confirming His Word to me.
This morning as I prayed about the February partner letter, this is what He spoke to me to share with you.
God wants to be extravagant with you this very month.
And it’s the perfect month to receive His extravagance. It is the month of love!
What does extravagant mean?
- Exceeding the limits of reason or necessity
- Extremely or excessively elaborate
- Exceeding the bounds of reason, demands, or opinions
- Going beyond what is deserved or justifiable
- Going beyond the bounds
All these definitions remind me of a verse found in Ephesians 3:20.
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. (NKJV)
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]. (AMP)
This next one is my favorite!!!
Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you. (TPT)
God can and will achieve our most unbelievable dream and exceed our wildest imagination. Why? Because He loves us and because absolutely nothing is impossible with God.
This, my friend, is what I am praying for you this month. That God, our God, will be extravagant with you this month.
Extravagant with meeting your needs. Extravagant with restoring your health and wholeness. Extravagant with bringing your family closer to Him. Extravagant in your business and ministries. Extravagant in His manifested glory in your life. Extravagant in the favor He releases upon your life. Extravagant in answering every single prayer you pray this month. And extravagant in the harvest He brings your way.
I realize most of us have experienced attacks on our faith in the past two years, but it has not changed God. It’s time to dust off those dreams and plans that are already in your heart. Time to believe for the BIG He has in store for you. The dreams and promises God gave you in the beginning have not changed – He still wants to fulfill them in your life – we simply need to believe like we have never been disappointed and know He is faithful. He is not a man that He should lie – if He said it – He will do it!
As you sow your very best seed this month…sow for an extravagant month from God. I believe we are going to see it. We are going to touch it. We are going to eat of it. Our God, who does more than we can ask, think or imagine, is poised to fulfill His Word in our life this month. Can you believe? Will you receive? May God be exceedingly extravagant in YOUR life this very month.
