Possibilities can be all around you and you will never see them, and sometimes you will never see what others can see (even though it’s obvious). The reason you never see it is because it was not meant for you to see it. You would have never thought of it or seen it. It has always been there, but God showed it to someone else. And what is obvious to you and what is possible for you was shown to you by God for His purpose. You must recognize it and pursue it.
Genesis 12:1-3 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. 2 “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse, and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.
What God did with Abraham was give him a picture or inner image of possibilities.
Becoming a father of many nations was for him and no one else. It was Abraham’s personal success and his Big Picture (vision).
God needs us to see what He said. God’s Words are designed to get you to see. His Words create an image. You are wired to create images of what was spoken to you.
What do you see?
If you can't see it within, you'll never obtain it. Mental pictures are designed by God to keep you motivated, obsessed, encouraged, and knowing what's possible for you. If God said it and if you can see it, then it is possible for you. It may be impossible for others, but it's possible for you. This is why it is extremely important that you don't copy others just to copy others.
Not one other person was called to be a father of many nations.
Killing a giant was for David. Moses and Joshua parted Seas. The apostle John saw and wrote the book of revelation. Only one man made the sun stand still. His name was Joshua. Jesus was Mary's vision and dream. She was the only woman. John the Baptist was the one chosen to baptize Jesus and prepare the way for His coming. Only Nehemiah had the dream to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem. Only Samson was anointed to have that kind of strength. You can pray for it all you want and go get a “prophelie” for “confirmation”, but you are only anointed to do what God OBVIOUSLY placed inside of you. God sets you apart, makes you unique and gives you a Big Picture that’s only designed for you!
Today there is still supposed to be only one person doing certain things or just a few people, but this society is so caught up in the wrong definition of success, that basically all everyone does is copy others and loosely say, “God told me to do it”.
Conferences and seminars are not wrong, but they have almost destroyed our ability to hear from God and be ourselves. We think since “successful” people talk like that, act like that, and do that, we should just copy them; even at the expense of changing our personality, voice, and true calling.
Let God show you your true purpose and when He does pursue that only.
