During this week God was showing me maps. Everywhere there were maps. Even in WhatsApp, a brother in Christ sent a picture with His Bible and a cover on His Bible was with a map. Of course, I did not pay attention until… On Thursday on my way, I felt to visit a bookstore. I do not go too often to bookstores, ebooks are my thing now. I came to a department where diary books were, and what do you think I saw? I saw a wrapping paper with a map on it. I heard the voice, “Buy it.” I answered, “God, I will buy it on the way back.” Then I heard back, “No, you will not.” Anyway, I thought I would buy on the way back, but God was so right. He is always right. I did not. I completely forgot about it. Then in the evening when I was writing ‘Revive Me Daily Prophetic Word’ for Friday, God reminded me about the wrapping paper and revealing me why He showed me maps. It was like rivers of water started flowing out from within. I thank the Father that He gives us many chances. God is so good! When we do not grasp it from the first time, He will show us again and again till we get it. So, on Friday I went and bought a wrapping paper with a map on it.
Why is a map so significant?
The enemy has taken you off a map. He has taken you off and brought disease, hopelessness, failure in ministry, broken family, poverty. You felt like you went through hell. But the enemy’s plans will not succeed. God is mapping you back.
God is mapping you back and He is mapping out your life. “To Map up” means “to plan the details of one’s future”. God is planning the details of your future, every detail, small and big, to get you out of mental torment to your freedom. He will lead you to places you’ve never been to before. God will lead you to people you’ve never met before. In the future, you will see the whole world will be opened before you.
You were living in your little town, little world, your own world and thought you were insignificant. “I am not even on the map”, you say. God is taking you out of your world mindset and capacity and will place you into His world and His capacity. What you understood, it was just a glimpse of what God is going to show and reveal to you about your future. This is not going to be just a display for you to look at or window shopping. This is going to be so real. This is shopping time. You walk in – you see, you get advice, you choose, you get your promise. SEE – GET ADVICE – CHOOSE – GET PROMISE.
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the BEST pathway for your life, I will advise you and watch over you.” Psalm 32:8 (NLT) God will teach you and tell you the best way to go and how to get there. God has promised you that if you listen to His advice, wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed.
- God maps you. You will know who you are, your position, your destination, Who you are in Christ.
- God maps out your life. The Father plans all the details, big or small.
- God enlarges your visionary map. He will widen your vision. You will not live in your small world anymore. God will widen your dreams, visions, understanding about God.
- God maps a Bible verse for each season. The whole Bible is great – read it, meditate on it, but this will be Rhema, word for now. Open your heart to receive the word, memorise it, meditate on it, print it out and put it everywhere that it can remind you about your mapped out future. The Word is very important. Do not neglect the Scriptures concerning you.
The Father says, Even when you feel like the rope of death entangles you and the grave wraps its rope around you, I will rescue you from all their schemes. Do not be beaten by failure, but strike a failure with My Word. Do not be beaten by sickness, but strike a sickness with My Word. Do not be beaten by depression, but strike depression with My Word. Do not be beaten by suicidal thoughts, but strike those thoughts with My Word. The enemy threatened you, but those days are over. You will not be defeated, because I am your God who watches over you and watches over My Word. I will raise you up above all your turmoils and you will defeat and drive all your enemies out of your life with My Word.
You felt insignificant and thought there was no good you could bring in, but I say, that I will show you the true meaning of your life. You will go and be fruitful in every area. What you touch will be blessed. Your dead dreams and visions will be brought back to life. I will revise them and breathe My life into them.
You thought no one would accept you and no one would receive you. But I say, you are accepted. You are received. You are significant and purely loved. Believe My Scriptures, trust in Me and take My Word as the final authoritative word over your life.
I am taking a clean piece of paper and I start writing and drawing how I see you and how I see your life. This is your map, the map of your life. I will not miss a thing. There is everything on it. I am enlarging your heart – you will understand who you are in My Son. I am enlarging your territory – you are going to rediscover new things. Old borders cannot contain what I am going to do in you and through you. I am enlarging your vision – you will dream bigger and not be satisfied with your small world. I am enlarging My word in you – you will hear Me and have wisdom for every situation.
Many will notice you are not the same and your life is not the same and compare two – where you were and where you are.. and they will marvel as it is written, “For no eye has seen, nor ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who loves Him.”
Thank You Father for this wonderful Word. Thank You that You are mapping us back, mapping out our lives, enlarging our visionary map and changing our spiritual, emotional, physical, relational, financial world through Your Scriptures, through Your Rhema Word. We glorify you. Let it be according to Your Word our Father. Amen.
