Expand Your Reach

“Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes” (Isaiah 54:2).

Isaiah spoke of God’s eternal covenant of peace towards his people. He spoke in comfort to those who were barren, to sing as God would multiply to them many children. Isaiah encouraged those who experienced lack, to raise their expectations and to take the limits off our thinking.

This in expectation of the great things that God is able to do, when we expect more. This requires faith to see beyond our current circumstances and to imagine that God will expand our reach. Do not be limited in your thinking and do not limit God to what you can see and what you are used to. We have to be prepared to step well outside of our comfortable positions and to ask for more than what we think we deserve.

God promised to cause us to prosper and be in good health even as our soul prospers (3 John 1:2). In this season we are called to expect more and to anticipate that God is able to do far exceedingly above all we could ever ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).

Be ambitious in essence and dare to dream much bigger than your current situation and circumstances. We serve a God of the impossible, so don’t allow anyone to tell you what you can or cannot do. Throw those limiting thoughts, ideas and opinions aside and reach ahead to attain what God has in store.

“For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left, and your offspring will possess the nations and will people the desolate cities” (Isaiah 54:3).

A.P.-Y.

  1. Thank you so much for challenging us to dream big.
    Its easy to remain restricted by current limitations.
    Our God is a God of the impossible.
    Bold prayers glorify God, some of the prayers we make, we ask in fear for God, if He is able to do answer them, so we resolve to ask small.

    1. Amen 🙏🏾. According to the measure of our faith, it will be done unto us. We are in a new season, a season of restoration. We ask for rain in the times of rain, as for favour while favour is falling. Take the limits off and dare to ask for what you want! 🙏🏾

  2. Dreaming bigger than our situation is so hard isn’t it. that’s why we so need the Holy Spirit to enable us to exactly that.

    Keeping on trusting for the dreams we’ve had, when all seems impossible, is the very essence of faith!

    Amen

      1. Yes!!

        I’m so very glad if this…sometimes my prayers don’t feel especially exactly dynamic! And mostly they feel completely inadequate.

        And yet, mercifully, I am assured they are beyond precious to our father in heaven.

        And that is beyond encouraging!

        Have a blessed day
