Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.Psalms 2:8
For many years now we have had believers live life as victims even when they are aware of the sacrifice of Jesus for them, ridden by the concept of eternal life after here we have subjected ourselves to living in abject poverty and suffering. We will find out if this is how God intends for us to live.
The verse in psalms explains that God is not asking you to ask Him for little things, He wants us to ask for the impossible, and He wants us to ask for nations, to corroborate this, we look to the great commission we have received in Matt.28.19 – Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Look at this, God entrusting the destinies of the nations to us reveals such great trust in our ability to do so.
According to Eph.3.20 – Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
The Lord can do more than we can ask for, so why not ask for that thing that seems so impossible to you?
God can do beyond whatever we ask for.
As believers we must begin to dream on a large scale, we have God Sized Visions!
The consciousness that you need to evangelise the world should give you the understanding that your life must count for so much; hence, your pursuit, ambition and goal are not just selfish, it’s a partnership with God where God makes a Name for Himself with your life.
The gospel can only travel on the shoulders of men who have large hearts.
How wide is your dream to see the influence of the gospel take over the nations?
To what extent are you dreaming of God?
God want to use our lives to make statements to the world so how large Is that space called your heart?
it’s in your vision that God Is displayed as omnipotent because when your vision begins to speak, God’s omnipotence is revealed.
The largeness of heart comes through:
– Followership: followership matters because you’ll be able to do what you’ve seen your leader do, it stretches the heart.
– Be sold out: Stay at it till it works, and pursue that vision that God has shown you.
– Step out: Step out in faith, and make sure the world is paying attention to you and your God.
