For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith
Back then, when we just started out learning the things of the Spirit and the message of faith, whenever we arrived any town or city for a crusade, we’ll pray, declaring, “We’ve trod this place; therefore it belongs to us!” We were mindful of God’s admonition to Joshua: “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses” (Joshua 1:3). But that was in the Old Testament; the New Testament revelation was different. From where we are, we can take possession from our spirits through words.
You can speak anointed words of faith over cities, towns and nations where cruelty, wickedness, evil, violence, and hatred abound, and make such places a habitation for angels. This is because as one who’s born again, your spirit has the capacity to encompass the world; the Lord has set eternity in your heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11). Therefore, there’s no limit to what you can possess from within.
The story of Abraham in Genesis 13:14-15 is an example. The Lord said to 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 forever.”Notice the Bible didn’t say “Abraham marched round the whole world before he took possesion,” no! The Bible shows us how he encompassed the vast expanse of lands and seas—the whole world—from his spirit:“Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be”(Romans 4:18).
In that same way, you can take possession of cities, nations, and even the whole world from your spirit, irrespective of your geographical location. There’re no limits to what your spirit can envision and possess. From where you are, you can speak words of faith and effect changes in the spirit-realm concerning any town, city or nation you want for Christ. You can do the same in your family, job and business.
I thank you for setting eternity in my heart, such that there is no limit to what I can influence. Right now, I declare that your Word is prevailing and taking center stage in my country; and that men and women are being delivered and translated into the glorious liberty of the sons of God,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Ecclesiastes 3:11; 1 Corinthians 2:11
