Get God “outside of the box”

Get God “outside of the box”

by Dustin Williams

Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do super abundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).                                                                                                                                                                           Ephesians 3:20-21 (AMPC)

Have you heard the term “think outside the box”? My whole life I have been taught to think outside the box. As a creative person, I love to think outside of normal thought processes and perimeters. I was the kid that tried to think of how to fit the square peg into a round hole, not because I didn’t get or understand it, but to prove I could. Maybe you can relate, or maybe you’re the type that just accepts gravity as gravity, which is where I’m going with this thought of mine.

You see, I believe we serve a God who is “outside the box.” But when it comes to certain things in regards to God moving or doing certain supernatural miracles, I have found that I have put God in a box. I hope you’re following me, and I promise I’m getting there.

In the Bible, God did remarkable things. My personal error in putting God in a box is the “did” part. I mean, in Joshua 10:12-13, we see the sun standing still or literally time stopping so Israel could win a battle.  In Daniel 3, we see 3 young men made fireproof.  We also see God transport Philip, in Acts 8, in order to instantly reach an Ethiopian and then on to the people in Azotus (about 35 miles). I have known these stories, but when did I start believing that these types of miracles were only for the past? When did I minimize God to being less than God?

The people who look at God as the same yesterday, today, and forever are the ones who pray boldly. They accept that God is in the box and beyond the box!

My thinking was challenged by one of my wife’s spiritual mentors, Patricia King, as we were talking about the tight window of time that we had to get back to Utah from Arizona because of appointments and a scheduling issue. She looked at me and said, “Well let’s ask the Author of Time for more time.” More time? Can we do that? Not only can we, but we absolutely should.

When we don’t have enough food should we ask the God of multiplication for more? When we are walking through fiery trials, why not believe to become fireproof? When we need an extra hour to pray and we only have 5 minutes, shouldn’t we ask for the sun to stand still so we can get the victory?

In case you’re wondering, the answers to all of those questions are, “Yes, yes, and yes!” Can I get an amen? Join me in praying bold prayers this week. Join me in believing that the God we pray to is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I have no doubt that God will answer these bold prayers, and when He does, I’d love to hear about it!

    I worked as a legal secretary in a very busy demanding office. It would take me all day to do a tape there would be so much on it. One day God said to me “look at the tape Linda” I saw it whizzing round. That day I finished all my work by 12.30 ish. When I went to get another tape the boss didn’t I believe I had finished the first one. It didn’t happen again tho’.

    God is not in the box without a doubt as Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Even for what others would consider everyday little things I’ve learned to depend on Christ even for what others would call the small things. The lesson I’ve learned is that if we can’t be trusted with the small things how are we going to expect the the Lord to trust us with big things? I’m also trusting the Lord to help me get out of a lot of credit card debt, it wasn’t over foolish things, I live on a low fixed income and I have a car that is 31 years old and no money for another car so first I’m grateful for the car God has allowed me to have all these years and second that is the major reason for my debt I had a bunch of serious things go wrong with the car and no money for even a cheap used car and with all my back/joint problems I need a car and the only way out at the time was to use the credit cards to do the major repairs. I realize I’m also being tested. Please pray for me, I know that God is able regardless even He allows me to have hardship for a period of time I still know that He is able and that there is a lesson for me somewhere. When the Holy Spirit is ready I trust He will show me at the same time the fact that I’ve been suffering with all of this for a while now I am completely focused on giving Him glory for I know He is able to save me from my troubles. God is good all of the time! We must praise Him even in the hard times and remember He is able, He is not in a box but is able to do what He pleases, when He pleases, all in His perfect time. I thank you and I praise you Father in Jesus Holy, great, and mighty name! Amen! He must increase and I must decrease, please pray for me.

    Hi i’m Janet Olwage from South Africa, i met Katie last year at a Faith On Fire Conference in SA. She prayed for me,and God did a creative miracle, and He sent His angels and removed a sling embedded in my bladder that would have taken invasive, dangerous surgery to remove. After years of suffering with it, Katie prayed, and in one nano-second God sent His angels and removed it.
    How is that for believing that God is ‘out of the box’. I also asked Katie to pray for my daughter’s slipped disc, and while she was praying, my daughter whom was far away in Johannesburg, felt her back go into alignment! Amazing creative miracles.
    Bless you Katie for your incredible Ministry and how you have touched our lives, and taken our thinking ‘out of the box’.

    Today. I am officially taking Him out of the box. I expect to not only see but receive Supernatural miracles, signs, and wonders by God and the Dunamis power within me ❤️.

    God IS a God of timing. Had I been shown Katie’s videos a few years ago I would not have received. Today I believe. Today I receive. I KNOW God has a great work for me to do in the Kingdom but I must first become excellent in soul. Did Someone send these videos to me by chance right now? Nope! I am in a season of stretching for the battle ahead and I need sanctification in my soul ❤️❤️❤️
