That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Before Jesus met the ten lepers, He passed through Galilee and Samaria. Jesus exited
Galilee and Samaria, and entered a certain village. He passed through the borders of
Samaria and Galilee, and where the boundaries of the two cities ended was where the
‘certain village’ began.
Friend, hear God’s prophetic word: where men end their journey is where your journey
will begin. Where the relevance of others ends is where your relevance will begin;
where the good fortune of other men ends is where your good fortune will begin;
where the open doors of others end is where your open doors will begin. When men say
their season has ended, you will declare that your season just began.
Where men call their boundaries will be the beginning of something phenomenal in
your own life. The same place that is the end of the road for others will be the
beginning of new roads of greatness and exploits for you. The peak of other people’s
achievements will be a stepping stone for your own achievements to begin. You will
take off from the same place where your family members, bosses, predecessors,
rivals, etc stopped.
The boundaries of men will not define your destiny. You will not be limited by what
limited other men. Your life will not end where your forefathers’ lives ended. You
will exceed the benchmarks set by people ahead of you. There is no law that says you
must end where others ended.
Men may have their ideas about where you should begin and end; but if Jehovah is
involved, you will break the limits and exceed the boundaries that stopped others.
Pray With Me: Lord, give me grace to exceed the boundaries where others ended, in
