If one desires to make space for God in your life, one had to intentionality make space for Him to linger. How do we make room for God?
1. We must send a signal to our guest like the Shunammite woman and husband have prepared for Elijah to break his journey. Revelation: 3. 20. Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. God does not impose himself onto us, He only enters our lives when we invite Him. Because where we surrender our lives to God is where He will gives us our breakthroughs. He can only breakthrough for us unless we fully surrender our lives to Him. God is a gentleman, He will only enter our lives if we allow Him and invite Him in. Allowing Him to come closer into our lives, household and our finances, He will make rivers of living water flows through you beyond what you can even image possible.
2 Kings: 4. 8. And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman; and she constrained him to eat bread. And so it was, that as oft as he passed by, he turned in thither to eat bread. 9. And she said unto her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this is a holy man of God, that passeth by us continually. 10. Let us make, I pray thee, a little chamber on the wall; and let us set for him there a bed, and a table, and a seat, and a candlestick: and it shall be, when he cometh to us, that he shall turn in thither. 11. And it fell on a day, that he came thither, and he turned into the chamber and lay there. 12. And he said to Gehazi his servant, Call this Shunammite. And when he had called her, she stood before him. 13. And he said unto him, Say now unto her, Behold, thou hast been careful for us with all this care; what is to be done for thee? wouldest thou be spoken for to the king, or to the captain of the host? And she answered, I dwell among mine own people. 14. And he said, What then is to be done for her? And Gehazi answered, Verily she hath no son, and her husband is old. 15. And he said, Call her. And when he had called her, she stood in the door. 16. And he said, At this season, when the time cometh round, thou shalt embrace a son. And she said, Nay, my lord, thou man of God, do not lie unto thy handmaid. 17. And the woman conceived, and bare a son at that season, when the time came round, as Elisha had said unto her.
2. Throw out the old things? It’s very difficult and a challenge to throw out or keep our old things. Are you willing to decrease and so that He can increase in your life?
We must focus on the future than on our past. Do not allow the glory or gloomy of the past affect the best has installed for you. If we are persistently reluctant and being negative, we are the only person missing out on all the goodness from God. God wants to bless us with breakthroughs beyond what we can even imagine.
Isaiah: 43. 18. Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19. Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. In order to have more room to contain, we pray to God to renew our minds and to allow Him to take control and do new things in our lives.
