APOSTLE TALK - Future News Now!
with Prince Handley
REMOVE THE BARRIERS
The Word of the LORD to you is:
Remove the constrictions. Expand your circles of influence. Break the old barriers. Expand your touch. Use your faith. I will bring it to pass.
People need the breath of God … the touch of God. You are the instrument of God to reach people. Even your prayers for every nation, tribe, tongue, and dialect of the earth to be emblazoned with the glory of God are tools of LOVE and POWER through which the Holy Spirit works to reach people in time and space: sometimes years later in time … and continents away in space.
I have known God to use cassettes, videos, literature, and media broadcasts that were produced years before as instruments through which people were saved, healed, baptized in the Spirit, and received MIRACLES. God honors His Word. He watches over it to perform it. Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it. [Jeremiah 1:12]
Your personal sphere of influence … through ministry, through prayers, through giving … is at the threshold of increase in quantum leaps dependent upon what you do with this message. So be it, according to YOUR faith.
Enlarge the place of your tent. And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left … [Isaiah 54:2]
Change your thinking. Think BIG. But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved. [Luke 5:38] Think PAST the limits of your mind. Stretch out your horizon of ENDEAVORS and THOUGHTS. These things began Jesus both to DO and to TEACH. Base your thoughts, your goals, and your endeavors upon God's Holy Word. Use your faith!
1. Spend time MEDITATING God's Word so you can LEARN His principles.
2. Spend time PRAYING so you can talk to Him and HEAR from Him.
3. Spend time PLANNING so you will know what to IMPLEMENT for Him.
4. Spend time BELIEVING so you will know what to RECEIVE from Him.
Faith is wonderful … but it's even better when you have a PLAN to go along with your faith! If YOUR PLANS fit into the PLANS OF GOD, you will have the faith of God ... and the faith of God ALWAYS WORKS!
One time I took four of my oldest children on a hike. We had looked out our window for many months across a valley and to the beautiful hills where we lived. I kept telling them that sometime we would hike up to the hills. One Saturday I surprised them and said, Today is the day we will hike up into the hills. We packed a little lunch and set out upon our way. They were excited and I was, too.
As we reached the base of the hills we came across something we had never seen from our window. It was a deep stream, which was an obstacle to our forward progress. I carried my children one by one over the ditch. As we reached the top of the hills we saw a view of splendor. It was a beautiful lake nestled in the top of the hills that we had never seen and did not know was there.
You will never experience the NEW (UNSEEN) vistas in life until you're willing to venture out. Leave the comfort zone behind … go into the Promised Land! If you reach obstacles … which you will … your Father will take you through. He will honor your FAITH. Just trust Him.
