Isaiah 54:2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.”
Welcome to 2016, the year that we shall enjoy the fullness of God if we abide in Him. It is our year of supernatural enlargement and I pray that you all shall be fulfilled in Jesus name.
Supernatural enlargement is a covenant issue. Are you in a covenant with God? If your answer is yes, then you must prepare and desire enlargement in every area of your life.
Jabez desired it and he got it, 1 Chronicles 4:10 “Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.”
Every change begins with a burning desire. In 2 Kings 6:1-7, the sons of the prophets told Elisha, “This place had become too small for us.” Beloved, no matter what you have, you can have more and it begins with a strong desire. A weak desire does not inspire you to pay the necessary price for the desired change. Until you are fed up with where you are, you will not do whatever it takes to achieve something bigger and better.
Most people’s desires never become reality because they do not decide to act upon it. Until your desire becomes a decision, it will never take off. Choice not chance, determines human destiny.
Desires are granted as we delight in the Lord. Psalm 37:4 “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.” Desires are granted as we put faith in the word of God, our Lord Jesus said in Mark 11:24 “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” And it is granted when we seek the Lord wholeheartedly.
We must prepare actively for the enlargement, how prepared are you? Isaiah 54:2-3 “Make wide the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your house be stretched out without limit: make your cords long, and your tent-pins strong. For I will make wide your limits on the right hand and on the left…”
2016, the Lord is promising to make room for us where ever we turn to; whether we turn right or left He wants us to possess every land. But are you ready? Beloved, enlargement does not ‘just happen’, but comes as a result of active preparation.
