Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities. Isaiah 54:2-3
You are God’s strategy for the transformation of the world.
The Lord is reminding us this first week of 2020:
Many of us have been prepared by God in secret, and the trials we have endured will be the very stories which will set others free and restore families. God will use your tests and testimonies to rebuild your own life and the life of others. The Lord is telling us this week that we must think big and prepare to expand. There will be a coming together of people in partnerships, increase in families and multiplication of sorts!
Be obedient if the Lord asks you to resettle/relocate, your new assignments and open doors await you! You’re the person designated to take over territories and declare them for God. He told Joshua, “I will give you the territory where your feet step. It belongs to you.” (Josh. 1:3). You won’t be embarrassed because God decided long ago that in His divine timing YOU would be an atmosphere shifter and a soul winner!
Thank you Lord Jesus for a new year, an opportunity of newness and changes. Thank you for allowing us to see the previous years, as years of preparation and learning. May we not hold back and trust that you are faithful to prevent us from coming up short. May we look back at the hard times as passing waters, the way you told Job in chapter 11 and verse 6. We love you Jesus. May you change the hearts of those around us and work in our hearts faith, obedience and reverence. In Jesus name! Amen.
