Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. Have a lovely and an enjoyable day.
This Word is for you. God’s desire is that you have more than enough.
However, this is a Word that is not just limited to mothers but for all who will receive it.

Gen. 17:1-2 Passion Translation:
When Abraham was 99 years old, Yahweh appeared to Him again and said: I AM THE GOD WHO IS MORE THAN ENOUGH, live your life in my presence and be blameless. And I will confirm my covenant between Me and you, and I will greatly multiply your descendants.

Later in Deut., we see how God spelled out what was included for the children of Israel in that covenant of Abraham and today for us who are the seed of Abraham:
 Deut. 28:11 Amplified;

Deut. 28:11-13 And the Lord shall make you have a surplus of prosperity, through the fruit of your body, of your livestock, and of your ground, in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The Lord shall open to you His good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain of your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the Lord shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day and are watchful to do them. AMP

How much more in this new and better covenant that we live in? God is the originator of prosperity as we saw last Sunday, our God is El Shaddai; the God who is MORE than enough.

Poverty brings confusion. It is not the will of God. God is not the author of confusion.
When He revealed Himself as the multi breasted One, who meets our needs with an overflow, in supernatural ways, throughout the Bible, He meant for us to know Him as such.
He began by revealing Himself by covenant to Abraham (the father of our faith) as a 99 year old man who could not have children. He told Abraham to look to the stars so he could see himself having that many children…changed his name to the “father of many nations.”
God told him to see his kids as the sand on the sea shore when he didn’t have even one child. Why ? He was in covenant with the God and He is more than enough.
Abraham got to the place where he became fully persuaded that he was indeed the father of a multitude when he began giving glory to God…thanking Him for children before he had Isaac. (See Romans 4:17-21).
What are you looking at these days? Do you have a vision of you and your children’s needs being fully met by El Shaddai or are you limiting yourself to salary, to your income or to the economy of the country?
Are you so fully persuaded of your needs being met such that you are thanking God now no matter what you see around you?

THE STARTING POINT
God loves us so much that had to show us the starting point:

Matt 6:33-34 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. NKJV

This is what the Holy Spirit showed me this means. Seeking first the kingdom of God is how you start from the top by faith. Give like the rich for you are rich. Give like an overflow minded person. It means have your priorities right, seek the kingdom of God first by giving the percentage you choose.
With your faith, see yourself as the rich, generous, abundantly supplied giver to support God’s work and ALL THE OTHER THINGS YOU NEED SHALL SIMPLY BE ADDED OR SUPPLIED TO YOU.
You can only do this consistently when you have a revelation that God is more than the God of who meets your exact needs…but as HE revealed Himself, see Him as El Shaddai…the God who gives you a surplus.

Check Him out throughout the Bible, His ways are ways of MORE THAN ENOUGH.

2 Kings 4:1-7 A certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, saying, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the LORD. And the creditor is coming to take my two sons to be his slaves.” 2 So Elisha said to her, “What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?” And she said, “Your maidservant has nothing in the house but a jar of oil.” 3 Then he said, “Go, borrow vessels from everywhere, from all your neighbors — empty vessels; do not gather just a few. 4 And when you have come in, you shall shut the door behind you and your sons; then pour it into all those vessels, and set aside the full ones.” 5 So
she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured it out. 6 Now it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” And he said to her, “There is not another vessel.” So the oil ceased. 7 Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt; and you and your sons live on the rest.” NKJV

How many people see El Shaddai at work here? All she needed was the debt her husband left cleared so she could keep her sons. Instead, she got enough to live on based on the level of her faith indicated by the number of containers she and her sons collected. She got a surplus.

Don’t just expect enough, expect more than enough for every need in your house. I choose to always see surplus. I prepare my tithe, my offering (in faith as one who lives in surplus) And I receive the surplus of Blessing by faith.

When I do that part, nothing can shake me. I may have to be patient and keep sowing, giving thanks to El Shaddai for the surplus but I don’t worry or fear about how the need will be met. It’s not my concern.
How will the need be met? I have an answer. El Shaddai has more than enough for me.
He meets the need in surplus and He’s not cheap. Jesse Duplantis says: “He’s not El Cheapo, He’s El Shaddai.”

2 Kings 4:42-44 Then a man came from Baal Shalisha, and brought the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves (small flat breads) of barley bread, and newly ripened grain in his knapsack. And he said, “Give it to the people, that they may eat.” 43 But his servant said, “What? Shall I set this before one hundred men?” He said again, “Give it to the people, that they may eat; for thus says the LORD: ‘They shall eat and have some left over.'” 44 So he set it before them; and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the LORD. NKJV

That sounds like the work of El Shaddai, right? This food was brought to the Elisha in a knapsack. A knapsack is a small bag you carry on your back
like a small lunch bag or backpack. At the most, it may carry enough lunch for 5 people. He spoke over it, it multiplied and was more than enough. He expected it to be more than enough and it was.
When Jesus fed 5,ooo, (recorded in all four gospels) He was demonstrating how El Shaddai supernaturally provides.
He summed it up like this:

Mark 8:19-21 19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand , how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?” They said to Him, “Twelve.” 20 “Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up?” And they said, “Seven.” 21 So He said to
them, “How is it you do not understand?” NKJV

What about you? Are you going to have a shortage mentality or a more than enough mentality? What are you saying? Do you catch yourself saying what you have IS NOT GOING TO BE ENOUGH for the month?
Change your language.
Are you going to settle for:
 Less than enough as Israel had in slavery in Egypt,
 Just enough as they had in the wilderness or
 More than enough as they had in the promised land?

God measures for you superabundantly according to your faith.

CONFESS:
I believe in the God of surplus.
I choose to see surplus in my life.
I choose to always see more than enough coming to my life.
I prepare my tithe, my offering (in faith as one who lives in surplus) and I seek first the expansion of God’s kingdom.
When I do that, I receive the surplus by faith in the Blessing of El Shaddai.
Do you receive it? Tell the Lord:
El Shaddai
I accept You as the God who is more than enough for me
I receive surplus, I will have an abundance of prosperity, every good thing, a lot to give to every good work.
I receive it in Jesus’ name, Amen.
