Exponential thinking is hard for humans!
Imagine someone taking 30 steps. These are incremental steps of about two feet each. You have a pretty good sense that it’s about the length of a very large room. Now imagine someone taking 30 exponential steps, meaning each step doubles in length from the one before. How far would that be? Possibly nearly the distance to the moon! (Source: guide.xshift.com)
Welcome to the season of the exponential! In this season, God wants to give you 20/20 vision! In the year 2020, God wants to give you 20/20 vision! This means perfect vision, perfect clarity of things that are in front of you. In this context, I quote these words of Pastor Rev. A. R. Bernard, ‘Vision is the capacity to break out from the confines of the past.’
2 Kings 6: 16-17 is one of my favourite stories of God’s protection and exponential vision. The king of Syria was waging war against Israel. But every time he planned an attack, Elisha who would hear from God, would tell the king of Israel their plans and thwart the attack! Furious at the events, the king sent horses and chariots and a great army to surround the city and to arrest Elisha. As Elisha prayed for his panicking servant’s eyes to be opened, “the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was FULL of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” Exponential Vision!
And that is exactly what God is going to do for you in this season of the exponential! He is going to OPEN up your inner eyes to see things you’ve never seen before or ever dreamt of seeing before! We have all got our secret pasts, our dirty laundry that we don’t want to talk about. Stories of abuse. Stories of anger. Failed relationships.
1 Corinthians 2: 9 talks about a season of things unseen, unheard and not yet perceived! I believe as you receive this word, this is a season where you are going to be extremely fruitful. You're going to be so creative that you yourself will be blown away by the wonders to happen in and through your life! Grab the exponential 20/20 vision that God has for you and run with it!
Would you pray with me:
God, I pray that you may expand my vision and broaden my horizon to be able to see beyond my current boundaries and dreams.
