“And he brought him forth abroad, and said, look toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, so shall thy seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.”
“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
Vs 20 The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.”
Many people have been caged and limited by their environments. They have become limited by their circumstances; their tents have become their confinements. They only see life through their circumstances and backgrounds; they have become prisoners of their training and experiences. But God wants you to live beyond your circumstances; He wants you to live the abundant life. You may live in a locality, but God wants you to live the abundant life, flowing out unto the ends of the earth. Your life is bigger than where you are at. You are not a local champion. Your destiny is global in scope. You are an eternal spirit. Your destiny is bigger than your locality. You are more than where you are; therefore look beyond where you are.
Our opening Scripture tells us that God brought Abraham forth, and said unto him, look toward heaven, and tell the stars, if you be able to number them; and He said to him, so shall your seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and the Lord counted it to him for righteousness. God brought him forth from his tent, his confinement, his circumstance, unto a broad place, unto an open space where he could see things beyond where he was. God is bringing you to a roomy place where you will see things on a higher level; He is bringing you into Rehoboth, a large place of prosperity, where you will see life beyond your circumstance. Then the Lord told Abraham to look toward heaven, and tell the stars, if he be able to number them. God was expanding the scope of his comprehension of His plan for him.
Beloved, God is showing you something beyond where you are. Lift up your head and look toward heaven, and tell the stars. God wants you to look high up beyond your circumstance into His matchless and robust plan for you. Lift up your head! Lift up the eyes of your spirit, and see what the Lord is showing you.
My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that I am bigger than my circumstances; I am a destiny child and I refuse to let my environment cage me. I rise above my circumstances, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
