HOW BIG IS YOUR VISION? (2) Sunday, 25 January 2015
“And the Lord said unto Abram, [. . .] Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever.” Genesis 13:14-15 (KJV)
How big is your vision? Do you think that God loves the people He has blessed more than you? If you are thinking this way then something must be wrong because God loves us all equally. Acts 10:34 says, “[. . .]of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh in righteousness, is accepted with him” (KJV). When was the last time you sat down and said to yourself, “This thing must be sorted out. I cannot die unsung. I cannot be a proverb to my generation. Something definite has to happen in my life. I must be an example, showing that God still blesses those who put their trust in Him.” How passionate are you in this job or the little business that you are currently doing?
Have you signed over $100,000 of your own before without any pressure? I am here to tell you that people are handing over such money and you can do the same. I know someone who gave $1million away; he moved around like nothing big had happened. Why have you reduced yourself to the ordinary? The truth is that God endorses whatever you will allow. He may not like it but He supports it because He respects your choice. God says in Matthew 18:18, “Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth will be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (KJV). If you say that you want to remain mediocre or want to remain in the dust, He will endorse the path you chose.
Child of God, how big is your vision? How far do you want to go and how much do you really long for? In our text today, God said to Abraham,”All the land that you see I give to you and your descendants forever.”Therefore, what you see is what you get. I pray for you today that all that God has made available to you will come to you, that your vision will not be limited, and that you will be great and not be small in Jesus’s name.
