Do you want to be closer to God? Do you want to be filled with the fullness of God?
I know I do. I want more, more, more of God. I want to know Him better, love Him more deeply, and experience ALL of Him. Not just in the next life, but in this life.
Being filled with the fullness of God should be the cry of all of our hearts, no matter how young or old we are in the faith.
A few years ago, I attended a Voice of the Apostles conference at which Pastor Bill Johnson, senior leader of Bethel Church in Redding, California, was speaking. During a Q&A session, someone asked him a question about what he wants.
I was stunned to see his response: he began to weep, and then talked about how he wants more of God.
I was so impressed with that.
Why? Because Pastor Bill Johnson is one of the leaders in the Body of Christ who is more full of God than most folks I've ever heard of. His church is amazing, and they see signs, wonders, and miracles every week.
Nevertheless, even though he is already at that level of knowing God and experiencing His power, Pastor Bill could only say he wanted more of God. That was amazing to me, and I want to be more like that too.
You and I should also desire more of the fullness of God, and desire it–desire Him–continually.
If we do–if we want more of God, more of His Spirit, more of Jesus, more of His fullness, and more of His manifestation–then our Father will give us our desire.

Check out these promises that our loving Father God gives us in His Word:
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6).
“that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:16-19).
For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure” (John 3:34).
Yes, your inheritance–and God's will–is for you to be filled with all His fullness.
He bought and paid for the fullness of His Spirit to be in us when Jesus shed His blood on the cross. And yet, even though we have the Holy Spirit, we can somehow sense that there is more of Him that we haven't experienced yet:
- That there are higher heights and greater depths of God.
- That there is more of His heart to get acquainted with.
- That there are more attributes of His nature that we haven't really gotten to know very well yet.
We ought to desire to know God more; to be closer to Him; and to see more of His power in our lives. We should desire to seek Him all of our days, never ever being satisfied with the current level at which we know Him.
(Thankful and worshipful, yes … but not satisfied. We should never rest upon our laurels and say we know Him enough, for Heaven and earth will pass away before we ever know all of God.)
It's a holy paradox. When we seek Him, we find Him; and having found Him, we continue to seek Him. We can always be closer.
But yet all of the fullness of God is available to us without measure.
The Holy Spirit is God Himself, very God of very God. He is One and the same Kind as the Father and the Son, and God's Word says that He has given us the Holy Spirit … and that He does not give the Holy Spirit by measure.
That means WE can have ALL the fullness of God. YOU can have all the fullness of God.
So today I am going to speak a prophetic decree over you. I also ask you to speak this decree over yourselves. Make it personal as you do. Claim it for yourself, because it's God's Word.
As Reinhard Bonnke taught us, God's Word in YOUR mouth is just as powerful as it is in God's mouth. God's Word shall NEVER return to Him void (Isaiah 55:10-11)!
So here is the prophetic decree for you to be filled with all the fullness of God in manifestation:
“In the name of Jesus, I decree that you are filled with the fullness of God. You are strengthened with might and power through His Spirit in your inner man right now. Christ dwells in your heart; you are one with Him and He is one with you. You are filled with His glory.
Christ is your hope of glory, and He dwells in you right now by your faith in Him for the saving of your soul. Likewise, you also dwell in Christ and remain in Him always. You are rooted and grounded in Christ's love, and you know the surpassing height and depth and breadth of His love deeply and intimately.
You are filled with God's Holy Spirit without measure or limitation.
You obey Him without question. I decree that you are filled with faith in Christ and His Word. You walk every moment in everything He is and everything He has. You obey Him in everything and His Words abide in you. You will ask what you will, and it shall be done for you.
I decree in the name of Jesus that you are filled with the fullness of God. His Spirit is manifest in your life at every moment of every day, in ALL His fullness. His power works in you richly right now, and He is keeping you for Himself until the day of His return.”
Now speak this same prophetic decree over yourself:
“In the name of Jesus, I decree that I am filled with the fullness of God. I am strengthened with might and power through His Spirit in my inner man right now. Christ dwells in my heart; I am one with Him and He is one with me. I am filled with His glory.
Christ is my hope of glory, and He dwells in me right now by my faith in Him for the saving of my soul. I dwell in Christ and remain in Him always. I am rooted and grounded in Christ's love and I know the surpassing height and depth and breadth of His love deeply and intimately.
I am filled God's Holy Spirit without measure or limitation.
I obey Him without question. I decree that I am filled with faith in Christ and His Word. I walk every moment in everything He is and everything He has. I obey Him in everything and His Words abide in me. I ask what I will, and it shall be done for me.
I decree in the Name of Jesus that I am filled with the fullness of God. His Spirit is manifest in my life at every moment of every day, in ALL His fullness. His power works in me richly right now, and He is keeping me for Himself until the day of His return.”
My beloved, life and death are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit (Proverbs 18:21).
If you will confess LIFE out of your mouth–including spiritual life and the vibrancy of being filled with the fullness of God Himself–then you will see your life change. You will see what you speak begin to manifest in your life.
Therefore, my friend, print out these declarations or write them down in your journal. Speak them often over yourself and even over other people as intercession. You will see them work, for they are God's Word and His will for your life!
