AS FAR AS YOUR EYES CAN SEE
“And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, 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 for ever. And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.” Genesis 13:14-17
In January 2017, following the Lords instructions my family and I moved to the Federal Capital City of Abuja to start a new work. Now as simple as that statement sounds, it was purely a walk of faith. The Lord had instructed to leave everything we knew behind us.
At this time, that meant leaving two thriving churches behind and practically all of our property. We were not allowed of the Lord to take a salary or anything from the churches we were leaving behind.
It seemed quite foolish and ridiculous at the time. We had no where to stay as the initial arrangements had fallen through and all I had to my name at the time was just N78,000. I wondered how far that was going to go with a pregnant wife and two kids. It was either sink or swim. If I missed God on this I was simply going to drown my home.
Three years after, from squatting as a family with others, now we have this beautiful church which has stood the test of adversity. Satan has thrown everything at it and yet its standing. Faith never makes sense to the ordinary mind. Moses was said to disregard the fury of Pharaoh because he had seen the invisible.
I saw what the Lord wanted done in this part of the city and the role he wants me to play in it and truth is we are just getting started!
When the lord asked us to leave Lagos, it actually felt like suicide. I look back now and I realise that to get into Canaan God usually will take you out first from what you are comfortable with but isn’t your destiny.
God designed us to live by dreams and visions. He always places a vision bigger than us, that requires more than we have within our hearts. In fact if you can do what you’re dreaming then its not from God! God-sized dreams always leave you needing help from Him.
It’s time to lift your eyes from where you are… Right from where you are. From that little room you can rule the world. The only question is what can you see?
For as far as your eyes can see will be given to you!
Your dreams are valid. Go for it. It’s time to do the impossible.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for giving me eyes that can see. I thank You for the journey of Faith You are taking me through, because in this journey, all I see is possibilities. I declare that my sight is clear and sharp, piercing through my present circumstances to create pictures of possibilities; pictures that God has shown me for the days ahead. Thank You Dear Heavenly Father, In Jesus’ Name I’ve prayed, Amen.
