        (01/03/2001) a narrow vision?
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: a narrow vision?

[John 14:1]
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God,
believe also in me.

Sometimes we become troubled easily: troubled by
cares, troubled by people, by things that happen to
us, by our future. Besides becoming troubled, we might
even be envious when we look at lives of other people
who are prospering without God in their lives.

What does the bible say?

[Psalm 37:1]
Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou
envious against the workers of iniquity.

God does not want us to be envious. I talked in the
last email about developing a vision. It is very
difficult to develop a vision when we have a narrow
view of the world and a narrow view of God. Do you
have a narrow view of God? Do you have abundance
mentality or a lack mentality? If others are happy or
prosperous, will it diminish your portion in life? God
has taught us time and again in the bible that life is
not a pie but it is a river, a river of abundance when
we are walking in truth and in alignment with God's

[Psalm 37:3-6]
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell
in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give
thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him;
and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the
light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

God's remedy for a narrow vision is to trust in God.
Jesus has also said in John 14:1 to trust in Him. Do
you trust in Him? Is your vision too narrow or your
God too small? Is He a God that is without honour or
integrity who will not fulfill His Word for you in
your life? God has commanded and He will fulfill His
Word but your responsibility is to believe and to
trust. If we cannot trust in God, we will become the
most pitiful people in the world because we are
believers of a God whom we don't trust, or what we
would call "unbelieving believers" (what a paradox!!).

[Psalm 1:1-4]
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel
of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in
his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers
of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he
doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff
which the wind driveth away.

Life in God is a river that flows continuously and God
has promised that we will prosper in all ways but in
the right season. He will make all things beautiful in
His time [Ecclesiastes 3:11]. If you have lost
anything, God promises not only comfort but
restoration and multiplication. Life is not a pie but
a river.

So, let us not have a narrow view or a narrow vision
and ask God to show us how BIG He is, so that our
vision for this new millenium will be nothing short of
what God has in mind for us. Let us, for this year,
swim in the river of God, the river of abundant life!
