Full and Running Over!

Lakewood Church | by Joel & Victoria Osteen

Sunday, August 31, 2014



Jesus talked about how when we give it will be given back to us good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. What does that mean, pressed down? Think about this: Have you ever made chocolate chip cookies? The recipe calls for three-fourths of a cup of brown sugar. When you pour the brown sugar in the measuring cup, it’s so thick and dense, even when it hits the mark for three-fourths, you have to press it down. When you do you can put in about twice what it looked like themeasuring cup could hold.
That’s what God is saying to us today. When you look full, you think you’re blessed, God says, “That’s fine but I’m an overflow God. I’m a more than enough God. I’m going to press it down and show you my favor in a new way.”  
After He presses it down He is going to shake it together and not just fill it to the top. He is going to take it one step further and give you so much that you’re running over! It all starts when you take a step of faith and give. Today, be a giver, be a sower. Obey what God tells you to do on the inside and get ready to be full and running over in every area of your life!
We love you and we look forward to seeing you at a service this weekend!
