Think Outside The Box

Fiagdon river rapids in North Ossetia
Waters to swim in...
Ezekiel 47:1-5

Have you heard about the frog that was born at the bottom of a well? He thought life couldn't get any better till one day he looked up and saw daylight. Climbing up to investigate he was amazed to find a much larger pond than the one he lived in. And going further afield he discovered a lake that was bigger again. When he eventually came to the ocean and all he could see was water, it dawned on him just how limited his thinking had been. He thought everything he needed was down in the well, but that was a drop in a bucket compared to the things that were out there for him to enjoy.

Maybe you're living today in your own little well, reluctant to leave your comfort zone, settling for a limited and safe existence while God has rivers deep enough "to swim in". Wouldn't you like to step out in faith, experience new depths in Him and go where you've never been before? Remember, the enemy will do everything to keep you focused on your background, your lack of formal education, your appearance and your limited resources. But Bruce Wilkinson says, "It doesn't matter whether you're short of money, people, energy or time. What God invites you to do will always be greater than the resources you start with." Your don't have to let fear limit your vision when God is your source, because His supply is unlimited! One idea from Him, just one, can change your life and the lives of others. He's got great things in store for you today - so start thinking outside the box!

He is indeed our supplier.Water symbolises life from God the blessings that flow from His throne. A good encouragement- get out of our comfort zone even if we are materially impoverished- if we don't.how much more would we miss out on receiving Spiritual gifts and blessing.
