Filling The Earth
Genesis 9:1 NKJV "So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth."
God's plans and purposes are rarely restricted to specific geographical locations; the entire world is usually His focus. Jesus sent the disciples into all the world; He said they would be His witnesses in Judea, Samaria and unto the uttermost parts of the earth. There may be small beginnings but the plan is usually for it to be extended to the entire world.
You've got to learn to think globally. God says be fruitful and multiply, and to fill the earth; in other words, don't be limited to just where you are now; you are meant to grow and keep growing until you are influencing people and touching lives all over the world! Sounds ambitious, but it's achievable because you are blessed!
Refuse to be a local champion, be a global champion! If you are into production, plan to produce for the whole world; if you have skills, be so good that people from all over the world would require your services; always think of how whatever you do can fill the whole earth. It might be gradual, but you must keep making progress and expanding until you are a force to be reckoned with globally.
