Today is a special day for us as Immanuel’s Church family!! Together we are praying and believing the Lord for a total elimination of our debt (and yours). Our goal is to give more than we ever have into the work of the Kingdom. Our meditation for today is Malachi 3. There are so many precious truths unfolded for us in this chapter. It begins with the promise that the Lord, whom we seek and desire, will come to us. It also gives us another exciting promise that as we willingly and obediently give to Him our tithes and offerings, He will “…throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” (Yes, indeed He is always “more than enough”). This precious chapter concludes with the Lord writing in His special book of remembrance the names and conversations of each of His treasured children. He obviously loves to hear us speaking often of His goodness and mercy. And because He loves hilarious givers (II Corinthians 9: 6-8), I believe He also records our laugh of faith in giving! Rejoice, dance, laugh and clap for the best is yet to come!
In the days ahead, may all of our ears be open to more clearly hear what His Spirit is saying to His Church. We are living in strategic times, and our prayers must also be specific, determined and boldly based on Scripture. Let’s continue to believe for:
- A national outpouring of His Spirit
- Revival in Israel and the Arab Nations
- The Gospel to penetrate into every unreached people group
You are loved and appreciated, and in the days ahead, you will experience the joy of knowing that He is indeed “More than Enough”.

Today’s life-changing meditation comes to us from Proverbs 3: 1-10. Proverbs is one of my favorite books; reading and studying it unlocks for us some profound kingdom principles. Today, we learn about prolonged life and prosperity, about divine guidance and the importance of trust. These few verses also instruct us on humility and health issues. In verse 9, we are presented with a wonderful admonition to honor the Lord with our wealth and our possessions. As we so honor Him, He promises us that our “barns will be filled to overflowing, and our vats will brim over with new wine.” In other words, as we honor Him with our “time, talents and treasure”, He will pour back into our lives the amazing riches of His grace and of His provision! Celebrate today with your family and friends that our God is always “more than enough”. Prayerfully prepare along with your family what it is the Lord would have each of you give and commit to tomorrow, on our church’s commitment Sunday for “More than Enough”.
Sunday – April 7, 2013
Today we begin our 22-day devotional and prayer journey as an Immanuel’s Church family. We are preparing our hearts to hear His voice and will for “more than enough”. We begin by pondering and personally experiencing the extravagant dimensions of the love of our God. Read aloud the powerful words of Ephesians 3:14 – 21. Spend time thanking Him that His love is always “more than enough” for every need and situation in your life! Pray that your love will abound towards God and others. And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, (Philippians 1:9)
Exodus 36: 3-7
Please pray with us as we begin a spiritual journey in prayer on April 7, 2013. For 22 days, each and every day, we will have a specially focused prayer point to discover that our God is “More than Enough!”
