My pastor is really wise, because He knows God. More to the point, they are friends. On Sunday he said that God likes it when we ask Him for some big things, because He is a big God, who likes to do big things. His words reminded me of Ephesians 3:20 which reads: “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” .
Fuelled by this revelation, I made my petitions known to God. And trust me, as petitions go, they were pretty large. Today, as I was at gym, I was wondering where all the funds were going to come from, to fund all these extravagant requests. Suddenly, I heard the Lord say: “vuka”, which means wake-up in Zulu. So I became watchful. At that point, a man walked up to the water-fountain in front of me. On the back of his shirt were the words: “Bank of the Holy Spirit” (In Spanish).
I am always blown away when a big God, capable of doing Big things, gets involved in the small details of our lives. He spoke though a t-shirt. But the medium was not greater than the message. You see, the Father is truly infinitely rich, and he keeps resources in heaven for times such as these, when He can partner with us, in making the impossible possible. The word says He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and in truth, He likes to slaughter a few every now and then. He simply loves to pour out blessings on us, when the opportunity presents. He really is that kind.
I guess the only question that then remains, is do we bank with the bank of the Holy Spirit? Because if you bank there, you are able to make withdrawals. Right? Matthew 6:21 does after all say that: “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. So, if you have invested your treasure in heaven, and your heart is seated there, well then, the Bank of Heaven is open to do business with and for you.
I urge you to invest in God and His Kingdom. Invest your time, your heart, your wealth, your resources, and all you own in Him. He is a Pearl of Great Price, and He is worth it.
