It's Already February very soon March!!!
So what's on your list? What are you thinking about doing and have yet to do it?
This is the year the Lord has declared EXPANSION over the lives of His children.
Isaiah 54:2 states we must ENLARGE the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
ENLARGE, EXPANSION.... You can't and you won't being confined in one place. You have to STRETCH FORTH, this means you will go places that others have no interest at all in going, you will do things that others have no interest in doing, you will say things that no one has no interest in saying. UR they tent. You are the chosen one to do extraordinary things and to reach the unchurched.
For a very long time I have had many ideas and things that I have felt led to do! Truly inspired to just give it a shot. For a long time I put things and people before going for these things, one day I heard the voice of the Lord speak over me and say EXPAND!
Im honest, I did not clearly understand at the moment what the Lord was leading me to do, I knew it was clearly from God but
I of course said .... "Are you serious God how much more"
Funny right... that is exactly what EXPANSION MEANS (how much more) until HE GETS WHAT HE WANTS.
So today I experienced the 2017 Motion 5K Color Run.... I LOVED IT! Wow what a great experience today we ran for those who suffer from "Epilepsy Disorder" from the start to the finish line I was praising the Lord for the EXPANSION taking place in my life.
Whatever it is in your life that you have on "THE LIST" where you know GOD has spoken you press in and you do it! Don't wait for anyone to do it with you, go for it! Believe in You! He has amazing plans for you and as I have shared in the past not everyone can go where God is taking you. And another thing we all must learn that going in the direction of the crowd is not usually what God is asking of "His Chosen Generation" He is calling the ones that are ready to say I'M ALL IN when no one else is in... You get me! Yep that's God. He can't take you to do great and impacting things with just anyone or everyone. So I leave you with these words today.... Allow the EXPANSION TO TAKE PLACE! Below I share some deep words on things taking place in my heart right about now. BE INSPIRED!
First we must LEARN to reject smallness. Enlargement requires us to get out of our small boxes, our small routines, our small thinking and our limited view of God. Caleb and Joshua saw a place of enlargement before them, but the rest shrunk back and stayed small. Caleb and Joshua believed it could be done, but the rest said they were afraid to try and remained small-minded.
Secondly, enlarging the place of your tent means making room for some new people in your life. People will s-t-r-e-t-c-h you! Relationships with people will stretch your nerves, stretch your patience and stretch your prayer life. If you want more, if you’re tired of an unfulfilled, unfruitful, barren life, then God is saying, “enlarge and stretch.” You will never see a miracle until you stretch your faith.
When God tells you to lengthen your cords, it means lengthen your reach. Wider tents require longer cords to keep them securely held in place. Once you lengthen your cords you must also strengthen your stakes, driving them deeper into the bedrock of God’s truth. Life is like a huge tree. The more the branches spread, the deeper the roots must grow.
