Going Over to the Other Side 8.
Rev. Akan Effiong
The Bible says in Proverbs 29:18, “Where there’s no vision, the people perish….” Beloved, We should not wait for African leaders to arise because they may not.
Don’t wait for your president or your governor to arise.
You as an individual should arise.
Arise in the spirit and in the physical and create your own world.
Arise, shine for your light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
Arise, go over to the other side and create excellence for yourself.
God is calling us to a higher life.
He’s calling us to glory.
Our call, as believers in Christ, is a call to glory and virtue.
Arise and create an excellent and a decent world for yourself.
Ask God to pour His Spirit of dreams and visions upon you.
The Bible says in Joel 2:28, “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out of my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions”.
Beloved, ask God to pour out His spirit upon you to Dream big.
Ask God to pour out His spirit upon you to see vision.
You must see the big picture.
Drop mediocrity behind.
Separate yourself from mediocrity.
Separate yourself from everything that is trying to limit you.
Until Lot(mediocrity, limitations, etc) separated from Abraham, Abraham couldn’t see the land.
The Bible says in Genesis 13:14, “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 forever”.
Beloved, God want to give you the total land,
God want to give you the complete land – north, south, east and west.
But you must see it.
It is what your eyes can see that God can give.
It is what your eyes can see that you can apprehend.
Ask God to open your eyes to see.
The Bible says in Genesis 21:19, ” And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water…”
Beloved, you cannot afford to be blind.
Ask God to open your eyes to see your well.
Jesus says in John 7:38-39, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
(But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given: because that Jesus was not yet glorified”).
Beloved, Jesus has been glorified.
The Holy Spirit has been given. God is calling us to pray in the spirit until our wells, our rivers flows to give us a higher and an excellent life.
