"Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes." Isaiah 54:2
Much of life is concerned with preparations. Preparing meals, preparing meetings, preparing reports. So much of what we do is behind the scenes but we understand that if these preparations were not made life would not run very smoothly!
God is a God of order. He wants to ensure that we are ready for all that he has in store for us. The problem is that often we can limit the scale of what God wants to do in our lives. The potential that the Lord has placed in each one of us is beyond what most of us dare to dream. The bible tells us the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in us today!
How far have you dared to dream about the impact and influence you can have in God's kingdom? How often have you looked at your failings and weaknesses, sins and past mistakes and allowed them to be the benchmark of how much God can use you?
God is calling you today to get a fresh perspective. He's encouraging you to dream big! Allow his word to shape what your life can look like. Lift your eyes up and make plans for the future he has for you.
