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 …
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
1. Spend time MEDITATING God's Word so you can LEARN His
2. Spend time PRAYING so you can talk to Him and HEAR from
3. Spend time PLANNING so you will know what to IMPLEMENT for
4. Spend time BELIEVING so you will know what to RECEIVE from
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
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
