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,”

Ephesians 3:20 

As you continue to walk with God, He will continue to work on the inner man within you (which is your soul: your mind, will, emotions, perceptions, experiences, desires, personality, etc.-- what makes you, you). God will walk with you in the journey of transformation of becoming more like Him...More like Jesus. 

We don’t ever fully evolve: we will always continue learning, growing and becoming on this side of heaven. Each day is a process. Sometimes arduous...sometimes not. Either way, keep the faith, God is with you, to help you become the best version of you, which is HIS original version of you.God desires for you to consistently progress and be blessed (definition: to be empowered to prosper).

Trust God! Trust His plans and purposes for your Life. They are ALWAYS going to be bigger and better than your own! He can totally be trusted! He doesn't change like people do. He cannot lie! If He said it (If you can find it in the Bible), that settles it...just believe it, and it's done! You may have to be patient and wait to see His promise come to pass in your life, however, even if you have to wait for a season, IT WILL happen! He's the same yesterday, today, and forever...for all eternity, He will not be wishy washy on you or change. 

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Hebrews 13:8

The Lord hears you every time you talk to Him and pray. He genuinely seeks to give you your hearts desire, once you are in alignment with His word and the path He has for your life. He doesn't give you what you want just because you want it like a genie in a bottle. Truthfully, if you aren't delighting in HIm...what you desire is never going to be aligned with His ways and purposes, which are perfect. But, when He becomes your delight...You become like Him. You think like Him, move like Him, talk like Him, and most importantly, LOVE like Him. When He can trust you with the big beautiful blessings He has planned for you, because you won't allow them to destroy you, He will move heaven and earth to give you your heart's desires because your desires will be His desires. 

Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart's desires.

Psalm 37:4

Be humble! (Agreeing that you don't know everything, and are dependent upon God to do any and everything) Be ready to serve! This amazing blessing (The desires in your heart) God wants to give you isn’t just for you, but it will always bless others. You are blessed to be a blessing, not to horde things up to spend and serve yourself and your selfish whims. Get ready to be generous! You are a bridge for others to be blessed. Trust God's system. Trust Him when you don't get the "yes" to your prayer requests. Trust God's plan and His love for you because he knows what you need before you pray. Trust God!

“The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They’re full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don’t fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. Like this:

Our Father in heaven,
Reveal who you are.
Set the world right;
Do what’s best—
    as above, so below.
Keep us alive with three square meals.
Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.
You’re in charge!
You can do anything you want!
You’re ablaze in beauty!
    Yes. Yes. Yes.

Matthew 6:7-13 MSG
