OVERFLOW !

Nubia_group : nowhere else!
Overflow
“[A]nd those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore
the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the
 whole time of harvest)” (Joshua 3:15, NKJV)

We are those who carry the presence of the Lord, when we obey (dip our feet in the

edge of the river), harvest time ensues! Wherever we take those steps of obedience
 we can expect God to respond by bringing in an overflow of harvest.

That is not only a harvest (answers to prayer and the experience of God’s blessing)

for ourselves, but it starts to overflow out of our lives into the lives of our family members,
our co-workers, neighborhoods, and eventually our city and our nation. Where God is,
 life is. As carriers of the presence of God, we should always expect “life” to thrive all around us.

So often we think “I am just one person, what can I do?” But I am reminded of that old

song that says, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me!” When we make
 a decision to live full out for Jesus and walk in obedience to Him, everything and everyone
around us starts to receive the overflow. We can have a huge impact on our world when
we make the decision to live a lifestyle of following Jesus. It really is not just “about us!”
It is about us being a conduit for Jesus love for the hope of the world.

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to

observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your
God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come
upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God.”
 (Deuteronomy 28 1-2, NKJV)

Questions: How can you have an impact on your family, friends, workplace and community?
