“A New Dimension”

Ezekiel 47:1-12


Are you ready to experience another dimension in your life?


Dimension – the extent, size, magnitude and scope of something.


Extent represents the distance over which a thing extends, or the space it occupies.


Magnitude represents the greatness of rank or position; the greatness in significance meaning value or importance.


Scope represents the opportunity to function in a greater capacity.


This means that things are getting ready to open up in a greater degree in your life.


The Word of God says in Isaiah 52:2-4, “Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; for thou shall break forth on thy right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited. Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.”


This represents a new dimension. It is time for a new dimension in your life.

“Removing the High Places”

II Kings 15:32-35


Make sure that you do not have things in your life that shouldn’t be there.


In II Kings 15:32-35, you find the story of a King who began to reign, but had not removed the high places.


Now to better understand this, you must get a clear picture of what a high place was.


The high places represented idolatrous worship or idol worship. It represented false worship. Simply meaning that something else or somebody else was the object of their worship before God.


God still was not first in their hearts. Other things meant more to them than God. We have people doing the same today. They are trying to serve the Lord or do what is right in His sight without removing the high places out of their lives.


Question: Is there anything in your life right now that means more to you than God? Or, is there anything that you are putting before God? If so, then this is a high place in your life.


Matthew 10:37 says, “He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: And he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” Notice what He says, “You love them more than me.” He expects you to love them, but not more than Him because He should be first in our lives.


Sometimes it may not be a person. Sometimes there are other things that we are putting before God.


It is time for you to remove it so you can set yourself up for a fruitful and productive season.


Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” This is the key to your fruitful and productive season.

“Divine Healing”

Matthew 4:23


Healing is the divine plan of God. It is His plan to heal the sick.


In Matthew 4:23, Jesus didn’t just teach and preach. He healed the sick, because healing is in the divine plan of God.


Now, I believe that we should get an expectancy for whatever is in God’s plan.


Expect – to look forward to; anticipate.


If you are sick, then you need to look forward to being healed.


In Matthew 4:23 it says, “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.” That means that He healed all types of sickness and disease.


How do we open up for divine healing? By having faith.


Listen to what Jesus tells the two blind men in Matthew 9:27-30, “And when Jesus departed thence, two blind mean followed Him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David have mercy on us, And when He was come into the house, the blind men came to Him: And Jesus saith unto them, believe that I am able to do this? They said unto Him, Yea, Lord. Then touched He their eyes saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened.”


Release your faith for your healing.


Faith – the assurance of things to come.


Have an expectancy to be healed.


The Lord is still healing the sick today. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. People are still being healed today through His mighty power.


The power of divine healing.

“What to do when you don’t know what to do”

II Chronicles 2:12


Have you ever been faced with a situation or circumstance where you didn’t know what to do?


In II Chronicles 20, Jehoshaphat was faced with a challenging situation, and he didn’t know what to do. He was under a severe attack.


Let’s look at how he responded in the midst of a challenging situation.


Verses 3-4, speak about the first thing he did. He set himself to seek the Lord, and to ask for His help.


It is very important that you put yourself in a position to seek the Lord. Why? Because, He knows just what to do. Please know that there is an answer for every problem that you will face.


The second thing that he did is found in verses 5-6. He began to exalt the power and authority of the almighty God. Verses 5-6 say, “And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord, before the new court, And said, O Lord God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? And rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathens? And in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?”


We must know and believe that the Lord is greater than any problem or circumstance that we are faced with. For with God all things are possible. He made the Lord bigger than his situation.


The third thing he did was acknowledge that he didn’t know what to do, and he needed the Lord’s intervention in the matter.


Sometimes we just don’t know what to do, and that is okay. Because Jehoshaphat did these three things, the Lord was able to reveal to him what he needed to do to get the victory. God told him the battle was not his, but it was God’s. All he had to do was stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.


When Jehoshaphat and the people praised the Lord, He stepped in and gave them the victory. Remember to follow these steps when you don’t know what to do.

“The Faithfulness of God”

Psalms 89:33


The Lord let David know that He would not suffer His faithfulness to fail him.


We as believers must get a deep sense of the faithfulness of God in our lives.


God’s faithfulness is a prevailing force in all of our lives.


That is why the writer says in Romans 8:31, “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”


We as believers must believe, trust and rely on His faithfulness, because He will not fail us.


Those believe in His faithfulness will magnify it.


Magnify – to boost, declare, exalt, or make great.


Psalms 89:1 says, “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.”


Do not be afraid to boast of His faithfulness, because He will not fail you.


Faithful – dutiful and loyal.


He will not fail in His responsibility to you. He will never turn His back on you.


Faithful – consistently reliable; trustworthy and devoted.


This simply means that He will come through for you.


I want you to know that you can count on Him in any given situation that you are faced with, because He is faithful.


The faithfulness of God.

“The Blessing of Instruction”

Proverbs 5:12&13


Instruction is intended to be a blessing in our lives.


Instruction – a form of educating you; the importance of knowledge; to give direction to; the teaching of different lessons.


Knowledge, direction, experience, training and development come through instruction.


If all of this is a result of instruction, why is instruction looked at so negatively? Something about human nature that doesn’t want to be told anything.


Proverbs 5:12-13 says, “How have I hated instruction and my heart despised reproof. And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me.”


How you look at instruction determines whether you will be blessed from it.


You can look at it in a positive or negative way.


Instruction is valuable to your life.


Listening to instruction prevents us from making a lot of mistakes in life. Value the ones that the Lord has put in your life to give you instruction.


Proverbs 8:33 says, “Hear instruction and be wise and refuse it not.” Instruction brings wisdom.


Proverbs 13:18 says, “Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: But he that regardeth reproof shall be honored.”


This is the blessing of instruction.

“Becoming Fruitful”

Psalm 1:1-3


I believe that there is a desire in all of us to be fruitful.


We should want to be fruitful in life, or live a life of fruitfulness.


Fruitful – producing fruit; producing in abundance; productivity; profitable.


The Word of God teaches us that God intends for us to become fruitful.


Verse 3 says, “We shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”


The opposite of fruitfulness is to become barren


Barren – not producing, incapable of producing or unproductive.


The Lord never intended for us to live unproductive lives.


How do we become productive in life?

  1. Allow the Word of God to become your guide.

Psalms 1:1-2 says, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law or word of God; and in His law doth he meditate day and night.”


David said His word was a lamp unto his feet and a light unto his path. Allow the Word of God give you the direction you need.


  1. Be diligent.

Diligent – having a persistent effort to accomplish something.

Proverbs 10:4 says, “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.


  1. Have a plan of action to accomplish your goals.

James 2:17 says, “Even so faith, if it hath not work or action is dead, being alone.”


I believe that this is a season for you to become fruitful. Please know that the Lord wants you to be fruitful.

“Lord Remember Me”

Acts 10:1-4


In verse 4, the angel told Cornelius that the Lord had remembered his prayers and alms to the poor or needy.


Remembrance – the act of remembering; the state of being remembered; to recall to mind.


I want you to know today that the Lord has not forgotten about you, and He is about to bring forth a manifestation of blessings on the things that you have already done on His behalf.


Hebrews 6:10 says, “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward His name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.”


The Lord remembered what Cornelius had done, and it was time to bring forth a manifestation upon it. I believe that the time is now for you.


I believe that the Lord is about to answer some long awaited prayers. Things you thought He may have forgotten about. If He did it for Cornelius, He will do it for you.


The Lord has also remembered what you have sown or given, and it is your time to reap. This is your due season.


Galatians 6:9 says, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.”


Be encouraged today, because the Lord has not forgotten about you.


Lord Remember Me.

“Waiting on the Lord”

Psalms 62:5


David knew that waiting on the Lord was not a bad place to be in.


In Psalms 62:5 he said, “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. So, waiting on the Lord is a good place to be in, because it puts you in a place of expectancy.


When you are truly waiting on the Lord, you are in a place of expectancy.


Expectancy – that which one can look forward to having; to consider due, certain or likely


Expectancy creates excitement in your life. Are you really looking forward to God doing a certain thing in your life? If so, you should be excited.


Lamentations 3:25-26 says, “The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.”


I want you to know that God is good to those who wait on Him. He will even strengthen those who wait on Him. Psalms 27:14 says, “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”


Waiting does not mean that you are inactive. It means that you are in a place of not giving up. When you give up, you are no longer waiting on Him.


Here is a closing thought to remember. Isaiah 64:4 says, “For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by ear, neither hath eye seen, O God, beside thee, what He hath prepared for him that waiteth for Him.”


Things are already made ready for those who are truly waiting on the Lord.

“The Promise of Reward”

Hebrews 11:6


The Lord rewards His people.


Reward – to award or compensate you; to cause one to profit.


You are in a season in which the Lord is releasing His rewards in your life.


I want to submit to you today, to stay in a position in which His rewards can be released in your life.


Remember in Hebrews 11:6 He says that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.


Continue to diligently seek Him.


Diligently – to persistently seek Him.


You must continue to remain faithful in prayer.


God rewards the faithful.


Proverbs 28:20 says, “A faithful man or woman shall abound with blessings.”


I want you know that God will never short change you. You will never be able to say, “He only gave me this much.”


His rewards are so great.


Great – extremely large or larger than others of the same kind.


Matthew 5:12 says, “Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven.”


Psalms 31:19 says, “Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men.”


Just keep your trust in Him, because He will surely reward you.
