In January 2012, I asked the Lord, “What do I need to know right now Lord?”
Moments later these words came:
“Your God is too small. You have Me in a box of your making.
You say, “With God nothing is impossible,” but, when you factor yourself into the equation, you limit me to your abilities, your faith, your interests. You pray for the sick with hesitation and unbelief that anything will really change.”
“There is NOTHING I cannot do! Ask Me to give you a bigger vision.”
“Lord, increase my vision of You and Your ability, Your love, Your power.”
In my mind’s eye, I see Yeshua standing beside a skyscraper. His head was above the height of the skyscraper and His arms were around it.
“I am bigger than the biggest BIG in your world.” He said. “Nothing is beyond My scope of influence and direction. NOTHING!! Ask of Me!”
It is so easy to limit God to our worldly, human experience. I wonder what Moses was expecting when he stretched his rod out over the Red Sea. Or what Joshua envisioned would happen when the trumpets blew after 7 days of silent marching around Jericho, the most fortified city of its time? Were they surprised? Were they shaken to the core at the awesome power of God? I believe they were.
We stand in a time in history where big answers are needed to critical circumstances. May we have the humility and faith to ask for bigger vision and then the courage to act on what He tells us. He is well able and so willing to answer. What’s coming is bigger than this world has ever seen. It will make the splitting of the Red Sea look like a casual stroll in the park compared to what is before us.
We are His ambassadors on earth. He has filled us with His power and given us His authority. Let’s start asking, declaring, and doing. “Kingdom of God come. Will of God be done.” It’s time to ask, it’s time to declare, and it’s time to act. Let’s not limit God to our boxes.
Matthew 19:26 (Phillips Translation) Jesus looked steadily at them and replied, “Humanly speaking it is impossible; but with God anything is possible!
Ephesians 3:20-21 (The Message) God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, His Spirit deeply and gently within us.
Glory to God in the church!
Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus!
Glory down all the generations!
Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!
