HOW FAR CAN YOU SEE?
Jer 1:11-12..."Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 'Jeremiah, what do you see?' And I said, 'I see a branch of an almond tree'. Then, the Lord said to me, 'you have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word."
How far can you see? It is the extent of what you can see that you can be. What you see is what you become. Do you see yourself as a failure or as a success? Do you see yourself as a victor or a looser? Friend, God would not do for man what man can do for himself. A lot of people have eyes but they can not see. In the text above, God asked Jeremiah, "what do you see?" Likewise, today God is asking you the same question because your answer will determine where destiny will take you.
Jeremiah answered, "I see a branch of an almond tree" and the Lord said, "you have seen well...". What you tell God that you see is what He will put in your hand. An almond tree is a type of plant that bears fruit in all season, that is, all through the year. Jeremiah saw a life of abundance all through the year, and God told him, He is ready to perform His word.
The plan and purpose of God is for you to prosper all year round and in all season of your life but until you can key into His will for your life, and see yourself the way God sees you, you are still far from becoming a candidate for a victorious life. Friend, your reigning in life is determined by how far your eye of faith can see. God is ready to perform His word but can you see it? God is waiting for you to see it and confess it so that there can be a performance of His word upon your life.
Declare it loudly; Father I can see abundance life!
