Success On “The Way”… Ask Dr. Jeanette: Have Exceeding Abundantly Above!!

Can you ask for more?….exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask, think or imagine! Who can do that?…sounds supernatural.

Right? If someone says, “I’ll give you what you want. I’ll give you what you need.” Sounds tricky and slippery.. Huh…Well, haha. It sounds good, but who knows exactly what you want or need? In what context are those words spoken? Huum. Sounds like someone is trying to take you to a place where you don’t want to go. You know the old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, then it’s not true.”

Depends on who you ask. Your husband or wife may not know what you want or need. You may not know what you need. You may know what you want or need in the short term. If you have a cold, you say, “I need some rest.” Your quest comes from the depth of your mind. What’s your desire? You are right. Only God can read your mind and KNOW what you need or want. The Father will supply you with whatever you ask according to His limitless riches. Everything belongs to Him. WoW! He’s got everything, then He’s the one we should ask. Here’s the thing. Sometimes, people think “I can go to God and he will give me everything I ask for.” Maybe. Possibly.


However, if you ask, there is a good chance you will get it. He may answer, “Yes. I will supply you with everything according to my riches.” Be patient. Learn to hear the voice from within. We live in the world which has strong resistance. Some people may ask, “How is it that this person has so much and I don’t have that?” Jealousy won’t get you there. There are measures and timetables to receiving what you want. Do you know what you want? Can you put it in a question or statement? Search yourself. Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and new vistas will open. Go for it! If you know there are prerequisites to getting what you want, think about them. What are they? It takes effort and some steps to achieve what you want. It’s not automatic where you pop your fingers and overnight, there it is. There is preparation. While watching the life of Eartha Kitt, somewhere in the universe she knew there was something better for her, having grown up very poor. There is something very special for each of us. Keep dreaming.

Persevere. The “real light” guides you to your destiny. Not a guidance that leads us into our own inventions of things that will take us away from the true light and lead us astray. Teach the children.
