Genesis 13:14-15 (KJV); And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward. For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
Influence lies in the power of vision.
In our theme scripture, the Lord instructs Abraham to look north, south, east and west. He had a right to possess all that his eyes were able to see. In this, God subjected Abraham’s possession to what he could see.
Some people want to change nations but all they see is a small town. Some people want to transform continents but all they can see is a tiny district.
Abraham is the influence that we know today because he saw very far. His vision did not stop with what he could see with his physical eyes. When God told him to look, he chose to see the world and for this reason, he became the father of many nations (Genesis 17:5).
If you desire influence, elevate your vision. Elevating your vision requires firstly that you look past geographical limitations. You must see your influence stretch beyond your physical location. You should envision your life touching people beyond your immediate environment.
Secondly, elevating your vision requires that you see beyond the limitations of time. You must see beyond a time when you are no longer in the flesh and see your life influence the generations to come.
It all starts with vision. Hallelujah!

GOLDEN NUGGET: If you desire influence, elevate your vision. You must see your influence stretch beyond your physical location. You must see beyond a time when you are no longer in the flesh and see your life influence the generations to come.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I thank You for the gift of vision. Thank You because my sight is elevated. I see beyond my geographical and time limitations. I see nations, continents and the world. I see the generations to come responding to me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
