Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back... (Isaiah 54:2, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
God has blessings untold prepared for your future! He has favor in your future like youve never imagined. He wants to take you places youve never even dreamed of. But in order for us to partake of all these blessings, we have to increase our capacity to receive.
Think about this: If you have a one-gallon bucket, and someone has fifty gallons to give you, the problem is not with the supply. The problem is that you dont have the capacity to receive the fifty gallons. But, if you get rid of that small container and get something larger, then you will be able to receive more. Its the same way with God. If we think weve reached our limit, the problem isnt that God doesnt have the resources or the ability. The problem is that our container is too small. We have to enlarge our vision and make room for the new things God has for us. Our attitude should be, Yes, the economy is down, but I know God is still on the throne. I know that wherever I go, His goodness and mercy follow me. When you enlarge your vision, you are increasing your capacity to receive so that you can take hold of the blessings He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I choose to believe You and increase my capacity to receive. I let go of limited thinking and old mindsets. I set my focus on Your Word and open myself to everything You have in store for me in Jesus name. Amen.
