Not By Skill

You Shall Have More

16th January 2021

Scripture Reading: Numbers 17: 1-10


“And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds.” (Numbers 17: 8)

In vs. 5 of our Scripture Reading, God had told Moses that any man’s rod which He chooses, shall blossom. All that God promised was a blossoming. Notice that when Moses went back to the tabernacle, the rod of Aaron had brought forth buds, blossomed and yielded almonds. The miracle that happened to the rod of Aaron was more than what God Himself promised. God spoke a word, and went ahead to do more than He promised.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: whatsoever the Lord has promised you for 2021, He shall exceed it. You shall have more than you believed God for. You shall have your expectations exceeded. You shall have more results than you expected. You shall have more doors opened than you bargained for. You shall have more miraculous supplies come your way more than you planned for. You shall have more than you expected.

It would have been enough if Aaron’s rod blossomed and other rods didn’t blossom. It would have been enough if God did the much He said He would do, but without consulting anybody, God elected to exceed His stated promise in the life of Aaron. Hear me as I hear the Lord: God will not consult anybody to make you have more than He promised. God will orchestrate a chain of events to make you have more.

Get set: God will exceed your expectation in this New Year. God will open more doors than you bargained for. God will bring you more miracles than you planned for. God will cause you to receive more than you expected. God will cause you to exceed the targets you set for yourself. God will cause your results to exceed your expectations. God will cause your path to shine brighter than you expected.

Get ready to have your expectations exceeded. Get set to have more than you planned for.


In 2021, I shall have more than I planned for, in Jesus’ name!
