It is time to go a little further with our faith. Fear can come when going into unfamiliar places and doing something out of our comfort zone. The good news is, that God is with us every step of the way. God puts us in a place where we must use our faith so He can get the glory.
Isaiah 54: 2-4 New King James Version: 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.3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations, And make the desolate cities inhabited.4 “Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame.
Use what you have, and more will be given.
It is just like with this blog. It started with a dream; then I started speaking with my writing adviser about what I should do for my blog; my adviser told me to do what I was passionate about. I told my adviser I like encouraging people, and the phrases just came to me. Each time I had a situation arise, phrases just came to me. I researched which website to use, and WordPress stuck out most.
Matthew 13:12 says that a person that has more will be given. I took what God gave me and used it. With each step of faith I took, I got more insight. Information is given to us, and if you do not use what is given to you, it can be taken away. Therefore, we must use what God gives us.
God takes us from faith to faith, glory to glory.
Stretch your tent wide; God is on your side!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for your spirit that lives within me. God, I ask you to enlarge my territory, keep your hand upon me, and keep me from evil. I let down my nets in expectancy to receive all that you have for me. God, I repent for toiling and doing things on my own. Lord, at your word, I act and receive. In Jesus’ name! Amen!
