Joel 2:24, The threshing floors will again be piled high with grain and the presses will overflow with new wine and olive oil.

Summertime is one of the roughest times for businesses of all kinds. It’s the time when people see a decline in income and opportunity. It’s also a time of rest. It’s a time for the seeds you planted in the spring to fully mature into the harvest you need in the fall. It’s a time to be patient and trust God for the overflow.

Sometimes the drought we experience can be due to our own disobedience. God withholds our blessing to see if we will turn back to him. God told the Prophet Joel that if his people Israel would call a sacred fast and mend their ways he would send overflow. If we want to move from “not enough to more than enough” we have to repent of how we missed the mark and turn back wholeheartedly to God’s way of living. When we do God will send overflow in…

1. Our threshing floors will be piled high with grain. God gives bread to the eater and seed to the sower. God knows what we stand in need of and when we give him our full attention he meets those needs with seed. Now in order for there to be grain means that at some point you planted a seed. When you are in need plant a seed. Whatever you sow is what you get back. If you sow much you reap much.

2. Our wine presses will overflow with new wine. The wine represents the new opportunities that God wants to fill you with. You can’t receive it if you are still in the same old place spiritually. God can’t pour new wine into old wineskins. When you repent ask God to renew you so you can receive new wine.

3. Our oil presses will overflow with olive oil. The oil represents your anointing. Your anointing is about to increase after this test. I don’t like what I had to go through but I love what God’s getting ready to do. In order to get oil the olive has to be pressed. You had to go thru this season of lack for God to pour back the oil on your life.

Dear God,

Thank you for taking me from not enough to just enough to more than enough. Give me the ability to persevere thru the summer to experience overflow in the fall. Work on me this summer so that I can be more anointed in the fall. Renew the right spirit within me and restore the Joy of my salvation! Fill me up until I overflow. I want flow over with your goodness.

In Jesus Name!

Amen
