GET OUT OF THE RUT
May 21 Thursday, 2015
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee” Genesis 12:1 (KJV)
God was not going to leave Abraham to die in the same rut that his father died in. His father died in Haran when God wanted him to go to Canaan. Terah, Abraham’s father got to Haran (Genesis 11:31-32), he dwelled there and died there. Abraham you will not die where your father died. What killed your father will not kill you. You will not end up where your father ended. Abraham come out from your father’s house from your country from your kindred to a land that I will show you. What I am set to do in your life is too big to be confined to this village. The things that God is set to do in your life are too big to be localised. Get ready for a global recognition. The devil will not stop you. No witch will stop you. No wizard will stop you. No incantation will stop you. You will arrive at that destiny.
You are not meant for local recognition, you are global person. Come out from that locality and from the familiar terrain. Come out from where they have confined you and named you and have given you an identity. Come out from that very limitation. Break out of every limitation because God has a great plan for your life.
There are some people who cannot move forwards in life because of their family background, because of what they have been told or because of what they are used to and so they do not expect anything new. I heard the story of a woman. Every time she wanted to fry sausages, she will cut the two ends. It became her habit. One day somebody was bold enough to ask her that I notice that each time you want to fry sausages you cut the two ends, why do you do that? She answered that her mother used to do it like that. He got through to the mother and said: I saw your daughter and she said the reason why she does what she does is because she had seen you do it. Why did you do that and she also said that was how my mother did it.
To cut the long story short he kept on tracing and they found out that, each one got it from the mother. Does that make it right? No. They do not have any definite reason and yet that became the norm. There are things you have built into your system that don’t make sense. You must let go of them! You may have carried it over from your parents, from your family background, or from your village. And those things are limiting you. It is time to let go. Today every limitation is broken.
Whatever is keeping you from moving into the prophetic destiny that God has ordained and designed for your life is leaving you now. You are moving forward. No more rut! No more crossroads. Not until Abraham left father and left kindred was he able to get into the promise land. Otherwise, he could not be blessed. Today everything holding you back is destroyed. I declare you blessed in Jesus name.
