The vastness of God is immeasurable. When we view things from a heavenly perspective, we realize that we cannot rely on our limited vision to determine His purposes for our lives and ministries. Although we may not necessarily be called to travel to all the nations in the earth, it is important to prepare to minister before people unlike ourselves. Casting fear aside, we walk by faith into God's territories.

The gospel must be preached in all the world. How do we proclaim a gospel to people who do not understand our language? The beauty of movement and dance is that the gospel message can be conveyed without understanding the literal meaning of the words. Choreography, garments, pageantry, and live demonstration of the Scriptures will be evident to all who watch as the Spirit speaks His Truth. I have personally witnessed movement ministry set to songs in other languages, but understood the meaning based on the successful interpretation of the Word.

Let us prepare ourselves for enlarged borders! Even if we are not specifically called to travel to another nation, the Lord may lead us to send resources to a ministry group laboring in a particular territory. When we claim to support the cause of Christ, then we must show ourselves faithful, even when another is appointed to do the work. The Lord determines our paths and has given us footsteps to follow. Allowing Him to lead will propel us into Divine destination.

Psalm 98:2 (NKJV)
The LORD has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations.

Psalm 106:5 (NKJV)
That I may see the benefit of Your chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, that I may glory with Your inheritance.

Isaiah 55:5 (NKJV)
Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, and nations who do not know you shall run to you, because of the LORD your God, and the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.”

Jeremiah 1:5 (NKJV)
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
