He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men… – Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV)
One of your major determinations this year should be to achieve all that God has set in your heart to achieve, leaving nothing out. He has set eternity in your heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11), meaning that there’s no limit to the extent of your faith; that is, how far your faith can go and how much you can accomplish. The Lord said to Abraham in Genesis 13:14-15 “… 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.”
How was Abraham supposed to view the entire expanse of land and seas from where he stood? Was he to stand up, march around the whole world to take possession of it?” No! Abraham was the father of faith; he understood the faith principle of seeing with the eyes of the spirit. Hence, he projected himself in faith; with his spirit, he saw the whole world. According to the Scriptures, God gave the world to Abraham by promise.
There’re no limits to what your faith can accomplish. The question is, “What can you see?” In 2 Kings 2, when Elisha said to Elijah, “…let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.” Notice Elijah’s response: “Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so” (2 Kings 2:10). We see, we speak, and we receive. As far as the other prophets were concerned, Elijah simply vanished. However, Elisha, by the eyes of the spirit, saw a chariot of fire pick up Elijah into heaven. That was how he was promoted and became the head amongst the prophets.
You have an extraordinary capacity to contemplate, think, envision and see endless possibilities. There’re things you might have desired and prayed about; take a hold of them with your spirit and they’ll be yours!

Dear Father, I thank you for setting eternity in my heart, such that there’s no limit to what I can envision. Thank you for lavishly granting me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of you; the eyes of my understanding being enlightened, to know the hope of your calling and the glory of your inheritance in the saints, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
