Your lifting will not come from abroad, it will come from within.
2 Kings 4:2 (KJV) And Elisha said unto her, what shall I do for thee? Tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not anything in the house, save a pot of oil.
This woman had oil in her house, but when Elisha asked her that question she told him she had nothing. Then suddenly she recalled, “except a pot of oil” And as the story goes, it was the oil in her house that she used to conquer that challenge.
What you need to come out of the challenge confronting you is not outside; it is within you. What will make you explode into a millionaire will not come from abroad; it will come from within you. So stop looking outside for help, start looking on the inside of you for your miracle.
It is time to look inward to find out what you have that will make you break forth. Your vision is what will determine your destination. It is what you are able to discover from the inside that you will recover on the outside. Until you see what God has made within you, you cannot make impact in your world. It is not the environment that makes the people; it is people that make the environment.
Proverbs 29:18a (KJV) Where there is no vision, the people perish
Nothing will change around you until you change your approach. You have to consciously apply a force to look inwards. Nothing will change around you until a change takes place within you. As a born again child of God, you are no longer among those without vision, because the Word of God says, “Ye are the light of the world”. You are to lead the uninspired ones.
When you lack vision, frustration and confusion sets in. But where there is vision, there is bound to be provision. God cannot give you a vision and you suffer frustration. No way!
Take your eyes off your location. Locations do not make people. Stop thinking that your lifting is in any nation. Your answer is where you are. You are God’s temple (1 Corinthians 3:16). There is something inside of you that will make you known to your world. God made you peculiar and distinct from every other person. Stop looking down on yourself. Never compare yourself with anyone. You are the best. You are not a misfit. It is time to break loose and restore dignity to yourself. Change begins from the inside.
Every revolution compels a change on what already exists. If you must make great impact in the world, you must take conscious steps to bring about a change. Give life a practical approach.
Say this prayer, “Lord, my eyes must no longer be blind. There is something within me that will enable me locate my destiny. Lord, show it to me in Jesus name-Amen”.
Do not mind where you are now, I declare that today will mark the beginning of your lifting! Where you are now will be the least place you will ever be in Jesus name – Amen!
God bless you.
