TOPIC: The Power of Vision (Creating The Picture Of Possibility)
(Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 21 October 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 13:14-15
MEMORY VERSE: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” – Hebrews 11:1
Vision, in this context, means the ability to see beyond the present. God saw that darkness was upon the face of the deep and declared, “Let there be light”, and light appeared. When the light appeared, darkness disappeared. God asked Abraham to lift up his eyes and look to all sides and that all the land, as far as he could see, shall be given to him. This means that whatever he could not see might not be given to him. God is therefore, interested in what we see and the pictures we create in our mind. May be for now, Abraham was not thinking of any good thing or things that had to do with his destiny and promises of God for his life. May be, all he could see were frustration and lack of his own children in his heart. God discovered this and began to teach him how to claim miracles.
What can we learn from Abraham? When you begin to imagine failure, then you become a failure. If you see nobody coming to your business centre to buy anything today, it means nobody will come. If you see yourself as a barren woman, then, you may remain barren forever. But if you learn from what God taught Abraham, you will begin to see things the way God sees them and you will become great in all your endeavours. As a barren woman, you need to begin to see yourself in the midst of your children; as a business man/woman, you need to begin to see many customers in your business centre that are too numerous for you to handle. As a career person, you need to begin to see yourself in the next office, higher than where you are now. It was when Abraham began to see things from God’s perspective that the promises were fulfilled. Joseph saw it all at an early age before he got to the throne. God asked Jeremiah, “What seest thou?” (Jeremiah 1:10-12).
Beloved, you need to learn how to create a picture of possibility in your heart before good things will begin to manifest and become possible in your life. There cannot be a great height without a good sight. God is ready to put the picture into your heart today, you should be ready to capture it. What God shows you is what will make you a show. God does not have a problem with what to give you; He only has a problem with what you can see. Get up beloved and begin to see after the order of Abraham.
THE MORE YOU PUT YOUR GODLY IMAGINATION TO WORK, THE MORE YOU BRING FORTH GOOD THINGS.
From now henceforth, you shall not be moved by what is happening around you but by what God says and shows you.
