Extravagance and Splendor

[Monday, May 2]

“Many of My people ask too little from Me, says the Lord. Surely, I am the Lord of extravagance and splendor who owns all the resources of the earth. Ask even more from Me in this season, so that I may sustain your living and prosper the ministry.”



Prophetic Scripture:

And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass (Revelation 21:21).

When you look at the Old Testament tabernacle, even in the temple of Solomon you see structures that were created with such a level of extravagance that it is hard for our modern minds to even picture such splendor. Entire furnishings were made of absolutely pure gold. Most people today can’t even afford to buy a tiny ounce of gold, which is about the size of two quarters. Yet God is building furniture with solid gold! But that isn’t all. If you take a glance at Heaven, we find the streets paved with gold and the gates covered by large pricey pearls. God has some pretty elaborate things!

A lot of people believe that God doesn’t want us to have anything that is too fancy, and yes, the Bible does draw attention to how materialism gets people’s focus away from God. However, not everyone is bound to materialism, and there are some good-hearted believers and ministries who will use these resources for God. Average has held the Body of Christ back in many things. I believe to help prosper the Gospel, we need to tap into the “extravagance and splendor” side of the Lord. Let’s stop asking Him for too little and expect a measure of resources that removes the limitations we have known.


Prayer:

Lord, I ask You to provide a new level of resources for Your people. Lord, even as you bless me in a greater way, I commit to make the Gospel my first priority. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
