Enlarge Your Vision

Isaiah 54:1-4 instructs us to ‘Sing…’, or in other translations “Shout for joy…”, God goes ahead to encourage us in verse 4 Fear not, for you will not be put to shame, And do not feel humiliated, for you will not be disgrace; but you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.”

These scripture gives us the ammunition to battle against fear and discouragement! Don’t be afraid to take the step you are sure God wants you to take. He says to you “Enlarge….”, take the step of faith and go for it!

This is the time to expand your capacity and take on more societal problems to solve. Don’t be discouraged by the exchange rates or the economic situation; don’t reduce your God-given vision to suit the prevailing circumstances.

If God gave you the idea or put you in that line of business, trust Him to fulfill his word and His purpose for you. God’s word to you per time is an opportunity for you to shine. Even when things appear rough, it is still an opportunity to shine.

Go ahead, enlarge your coast, take that step. Put away excuses and take action. If the word of God is in you, inspite of opposition, tap into the resources He has provided and move!

God is good and He is bringing increase to us because He has brought healing to our lives. The reality of God’s promises must not be dependent on how you feel, whether you feel healed or not, just move.

By the time you arrive at your destination in God, it will all make sense.

I pray for grace for you to be all that God has called you to be in Jesus name.

Count It All Joy

 

Genesis 25:23, “The LORD said to her, “Two nations are in your womb….” Those were God’s words to Rebecca, the wife of Isaac in the Bible.

Rebecca was troubled and uncomfortable with the state of her pregnancy and sought to know why the situation was so. And God told her, “Two nations are in your womb. You are about to birth greatness

Let me tell you too that God is about to birth great things in and through you. That may be why your experiences appear so difficult.

When as believers, we go through seasons of discomfort, pain and rejection; It is to bring us to the place of prayer where we can cry to the Lord for help. “For a brief moment I abandoned you…”, God says in Isaiah 54:7. This is only a manner of speaking because He was communicating in terms we would understand. Even though we sometimes feel as though God is far away from us and has left us without help, the truth is God is ever present with His children and NEVER leaves us alone. The rest of that verse 7 is deeply comforting because it says “…..but with deep compassion I will bring you back!” Halleluyah!

Even if it were true that God sometimes leaves us to ourselves, it is only for a short period of time to enable us learn by experience how to be a comfort to others in future. That is what the Apostle Paul was talking about in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

It is therefore not about what we are going through now but who is it with us! God shares in the pains and tribulations of His children.

There are things you may be going through now that if you would be patient with God, it will turn out for your future good. Don’t be impatient and rush into making some decisions you may later regret.

Lastly, James 1:2 says “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

I pray for grace for you to persevere and eventually overcome your challenges in Jesus. May your joy be full this season!
