OPEN HEAVEN 19 SEPTEMBER 2020 SATURDAY: Memorise: And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. John 8:12
OPEN HEAVEN 19 SEPTEMBER 2020 SATURDAY: Read: Genesis 11:4-5
We have seen that if you want your followers to have one language, then you must ensure the vision is big and clearly articulated from the onset.
If your vision is to ensure there is a restroom in every building in your city, people may not take you seriously as it may appear too simple a task. However, if your goal is audacious like that of Barack Obama – the first black President of the United States of America, then people would follow you with all their heart.
God-given visions usually seem impossible to achieve; however, He is able to fulfil whatever He has promised (Romans 4:21). A vision worth pursuing is that which appears impossible to achieve. lf for nothing else, people will follow to see if it will actually be achieved.
One day in 1998, l announced we were going to hold a crusade in Lagos where four million people would be in attendance. It really looked impossible, but at the end, we discovered over six million people attended.
Of course, while many did come to be part of the big vision, some came to see if we would actually have the projected attendance. People were so many that not all could see or hear what was happening on the altar, but they stayed until the end because it was a vision that was worth becoming a part of. The crowd attracted international media and ever since, we have had gatherings with even larger numbers by God’s grace. I know the power of God has always drawn people to our programmes; however, it Is proven that if your vision seems impossible, you will attract attention. The vision of the people in Genesis 11:5 was so big that it got God’s attention. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.”
Can your vision attract God’s attention? If people don’t see your vision as impossible, then you may need to rethink it.
