As I walked down my hallway, I heard God speak ONE word to me: fullness.
I stopped and thought a moment and then I prayed; “God, I thank you that I am full of Your presence, full of Your anointing, full of Your peace and full of all that You are.”
As I declared those words a scripture popped into my mind, it is found in Col. 2; verse 7-10;
Rooted and built up in Him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power.
The word complete means to be full and abounding. It also means to carry to the end, to accomplish to bring to fulfillment Gods promises and prophecies.
The word fullness means completeness and fullness of time, a fulfilling, and a keeping.
As I read this scripture, I realized that what we have inside of us has brought such a completeness that we have the ability within ourselves to bring to fulfillment all God has promised. We are complete in Him. If He is filled the fullness of the Godhead bodily, then so are we. Which reminded me of another scripture.
He who believes in Me, who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me, as the Scripture has said, from his innermost being shall flow, continuously, springs and rivers of living water. John 7:38 Amplified
Living means to enjoy real life, the zoe life of God, to be active and blessed continually in the kingdom of God. It also means to have vital power in itself.
The word belly means the womb, the place where the fetus is conceived and nourished until birth. It also means the innermost part of a man, the soul, the heart as the seat of thought, feeling, and choice.
As I continue to meditate on this subject, I thought, I have prayed, I have declared, which words, Lord, what am I missing?
Then I remembered Ezekiel. God told him to speak to the bones and they lived. We can do the same thing; if we are saying what God is saying we should see the same results as Ezekiel.
As I began to read the book of Ezekiel, I noted that God didn’t start with the dry, dead bones.
From the beginning of the book of Ezekiel God was telling him to speak to things and He was giving him the words to speak. I noted that God gave Ezekiel a scroll and said, eat these words and then prophesy these words. Aha. I was beginning to get it.
We must be full of the Word of God, full of the words God has spoken, we need to literally eat them daily until we are full and THEN declare them. And then prophesy them and we will see change come.
If Ezekiel could prophesy the words God had given him, we can do the same thing.
Therefore, I pulled out all the prophetic words I had ever received. Those that I knew were from God and lined up with what He had put in my heart. I have purposed in my heart to again eat those words and begin to prophesy them. I am casting my net another time! And…I am inviting you to do the same thing today!
I feel that God is trying to get something across to me, to us. We must be full of His Word. It must become our daily nourishment. Then we must prophesy it as Ezekiel did. Without doubt, without unbelief, begin to speak to those things forth and expect, fully expect, change to come.
Its time my friend, time to walk in the manifestation of the fullness of our covenant with God!
