Effective Function in New Era
The people of God are His instruments that He is recalibrating to function effectively in a new era. When you have a rifle calibrated to hit a bull’s eye at 100 yards, you must recalibrate it if you are to enter an era of shooting at 200 yards. Entering this era, we will not wait until something happens to merely react, we shall see it at a distance and prepare. We have greater challenges ahead of us in the era that is opening to us. We must lengthen our tent cords and stretch our curtains (Isa54:2). Our satisfaction with the present view of limited horizons must give way to be broadened.
