Genesis 15:5-6 He took him OUTSIDE and said, “Look up at the heavens and count the stars – IF INDEED YOU CAN COUNT THEM.” Then he said to him, “SO SHALL YOUR OFFSPRING BE.” Abraham believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Something happened to me yesterday. Something that I could no longer hold back even from the Lord himself. Yes, its Him who is the PROMISE-GIVER. Its Him who spoke to me about what His plans for my future looked like. No, I did not ask nor pray for the promise. But all the same, he give me this promise:
Job 8:7 YOUR BEGINNINGS WILL SEEM HUMBLE, SO PROSPEROUS WILL YOUR FUTURE BE.
Yesterday, I dared to ask Him, ‘WHAT DOES SO PROSPEROUS REALLY MEAN, LORD?
There was no answer until this morning. The Lord said to me, “STEP OUTSIDE…’ Yes, just as He did with Abraham many centuries down the road…He took me OUTSIDE. OUT OF MY LITTLE MENTALITY, OUT OF MY LITTLE WORLD, OUT OF MY HUMAN LIMITATIONS. He said, ‘LOOK UP…and start counting…and if your calculation is right, then YOU WILL BEAT ME AT MY WORD.
My eyes are wet as I write this, because I know there are people out there like me who are asking God the same question. ‘STEP OUTSIDE, FRIENDS because our redemption is drawing nigh.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.
