2 For 1

I had to share this with you. This is the divine power of God to bless you in folds more than what you have asked for. It is God making you a landlord when you request for finances for your rent, its God giving you twins when you ask for the fruit of the womb, it is receiving two when you ask for one!
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.."
Note - He can do above what we ask- says, according to the power that works in us.
Now for God to bless you twice what you ask for, even ten times that, something has to work within you to energize that kinda blessing. Something has to work within you to receive more than what you ask.

Things that could work within you -
1. Power of Commitment to Service
When you are committed to the service of God, When you serve without even thinking, without complaining - you have the divine grace upon you to make you recioeve more than what you ask.
2. Power of a vow - 1 Samuel 1-2:21
This is when you offer something for something. We see an example of this in 1 Samuel with Hannah not having any children - 1:11- She made a vow, and offered an unborn child to the Lord's service. In chapter 2:21, the Lord visited Hannah so that she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. She got more when all she asked was one.
3. Power of Thanksgiving - Luke 17:11-20
Here we read the story of ten lepers who asked Jesus to heal them. He told them to go show themselves to the priest and the Bible recorded that as they went, they were cleansed. And we read that one of them, seeing that he was healed, returened and with a loud voice glorified God. For this act of thanksgiving, Jesus made him whole. Whole meaning, every other infirmity the man was having, was completely healed. He asked to be healed of Leprosy, but Jesus healed him of everything else and made him whole. The power of Thanksgiving.
When you receive from the Lord, do you go back to show gratitude?
4. Power of Faith
It is the power of faith that makes you know that at the end of the day, you are going get it right, that no matter what happens, you are gonna be fine. In
2 Kings 7:1, Elisha decreed by faith taht things would change - he said, Tomorrow about this time...

This should be your new life's phrase, Tomorrow about this time,things are gonna change. It is faith that propels you to receive more. Much more
Live by the powers of 2 for 1 and remain blessed.
