The Lord has been speaking to me recently about a new measure. As I was in prayer, the Lord spoke to me about a new measure that He is releasing to individuals in the body of Christ.
I believe that this new measure is an opportunity for us to get rid of limitations we have placed on ourselves. This new measure is coming to break off any limitations we have placed on what God can do in us, our families, health, finances, ministries, businesses and lives! There is no limit or measure to what God can do and wants to do in every area of your life.
Recently, the Lord spoke to me about breaking the lack off the people in our ministry. I immediately knew that this was a charge not just for us but for the whole body of Christ. God wants His children to quit "just getting by." As people of God, we need to challenge the way we have thought about finances. God does not just want us to be blessed but for us to step out of lack and be a blessing to those around us and others in the kingdom of God.
We have placed limitations on ourselves to "just get by," but this new measure cannot come if we continue to think this way. You may have limited yourself before or become dull and stale, but it is time for a new measure. I don't know what old system or mindset you have been using to measure yourself or your life with, but there is a new measure! The new measure comes from the kingdom of God. There is no lack, sickness or failure in the kingdom of God.
When I was younger, I played softball with a traveling team. I was talking to a professional softball player one time, and he said, "Joe, what are you aiming for when you hit the ball?" I answered, "The fence." Then he said, "Joe, you do not need to be aiming for the fence. If you aim for the fence, you'll hit it just over or just before. See, the trees behind the fence?" I said, "Yes sir." He said, "Aim for the trees behind the fence."
What was this man teaching me? You can only go as far as you aim. There is no limit to what you can do as long as you don't limit yourself. It's time to aim higher than we ever have before. It's time to get out of our own way and step into the new measure. It's not time to swing for the fences, it's time to swing for the trees. It's time to live without any limitations and receive the new measure!
