God is Able To Do Exceedingly Abundantly Above All We Could Ask or Think. God is able to do what other people won’t do. There is no reason to worry why other people won’t help you out or give you a chance because you do not need them to do for you, you have God that can do for you. And God is able to do:
“Exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” Ephesians 3:20
Which means as long as you are willing to work with God then He is willing to work with you. Take the example of when Jesus said
“I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Luke 19:40
Have you ever wondered what it means to let the rocks cry out? Before we understand what letting the rocks cry out means. We must first understand the context in which it was first used. When Jesus came into Jerusalem and people began to cheer for Him as He came through the city. But Jesus understood something, that even if the people did not cheer for Him or recognize who He was, then God would use the rocks (an inanimate object that is not alive), to cry out in recognition of His glory.
Jesus understood that God is able to do what people who refuse to do, exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask or think . Jesus understood that He came here to help people and He was the son of God, BUT He did not need to be validated by people. Jesus understood that even if the people would not recognize who He was that God is able to do what people won’t do and use something as insignificant as a rock to get the same task established that the people refuse to do.
How many times have you put yourself out there for an opportunity only to be disappointed? How many times has someone said they were going to help you, only for them to not follow through on their word? I remember when I first had big dreams for myself I used to put myself out there, expect for people to help me along the way, and I used to expect for people to see my greatness and fall over themselves to give me an opportunity. When that did not happen I was left feeling disappointed. But guess what. I was able to put my trust in God and I got to my destination regardless. I did not need to rely on other people to get me there.
So why should you fear if people do not want to jump on your band wagon and help you out. Do you not understand what God is able to do? He can make the rocks cry out if need be. He can use anything in your path to get His purpose for you accomplishment if that whats needs to happen.
I remember it was in that moment that I decided to have a one on one praying session with God to vent out my frustrations I do that a lot by the way (check out my blog to read more). I was upset that for some people things seems to work out for them. They seem to bump into the right person at the right time and then their life changed. And here I was begging for people to get me an opportunity. Begging for people to see the value in me and to give me a chance. And yet nothing was working out.
It was in the moment I decided that If the door doesn’t open then I was going to kick it in (see blog here). And it was like God spoke to me and told me that as long as I had Him that I did not have to rely on people for my purpose. God is able to do whatever He wants to do, however he wants to do. And
“If they keep quiet, the rocks will cry out.” Luke 19:40
So if you are on God’s path and He has ordained you to do something and you cannot get any help, then know that if they keep quiet the rocks will cry out.
I understand that it would be great if “they” found the value in you and you may feel that your path would be easier if people would just lend a helping hand. But do not get caught up in that. You are going to get to your destiny regardless. God is able to do whatever it is He needs to do to get to your destiny. With or without people.
He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Notice that the verse did not say according to the power in other people or the power in what the world is willing to give you. As long as you have God on your side God is able to do anything He wants to do and even use anything, aka a rock, to help you reach your full potential.
So never get discouraged by what other people are not doing for you. God is able to do for you. Do not despise humble beginnings. I have said it once and I will say it again just because the glass does not appear full does not mean it will remain empty. I have learned that looking at the cup half empty makes me realize how much harder I have to work to make it full (click here to read that blog).
And that is why I know if someone does not want to help you out it is their lost. God is able to do it. Let the rocks cry out in recognition of your glory. If someone does not recognize your value, then it is their lost, let the rocks cry out. If someone does not want to give you a raise or a promotion, then it is their lost, let the rocks cry out. As long as you have you and as long as you have God, then God is able to do. He is the only help you need, so lets the rocks cry out.
He can use a rock, He can use a situation, He can use a circumstance, He can use anything around you to make what He wants to happen, happen. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us. Your only job is to put yourself in the position to be blessed. And even if no one else wants to bless you then know that God will let the rocks cry out. And a rock could symbolize anything depending on what He wants to use.
Sometimes God isolates you on purpose and the only person working toward your purpose is you and Him. He does not allow anyone else to help you because He does not want anyone else to take credit for the places He is about to take you. He wants the rocks to cry out for you. He wants everyone to discredit you, that way when you get to where you need to be the only person who can take credit for where you are is God. Do not allow the fact that other people won’t be there for you or help you out be your end all and be all. You do not need them. You are going to get to your destination regardless and God can use anything to get you there. You do not need other people for that.
