“Clear lots of ground for your tents!
Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big!” Isaiah 54:2 MSG
One of the secrets for us to move forward is to enlarge our thinking. We make room in our hearts for expansion. Stretch out! Be prepared because to cover more room comes with inconvenience. BUT be of good cheer! An excursion with God will always allow us to explore Who He really is that opens doors to intimate encounters with Him that one will never regret. SURELY it would be a well worth walk.
It is in this journey where you will come to know how much He cares for you, how much He delights being with you, how much He rejoices in singing with you, how much He longs to quiet you in His love, how much He desires to show you His wonderful plans as He unveils them step by step, one day at a time.
Discovering more of Who the Lover of your soul is, fills you with MORE and MORE of His presence that increases your confidence until anything that doesn’t bring Him pleasure won’t have any room in your heart. The resurrection power is that kind of power that nothing can come against! It pushes out anything that is not of Him.
Fear is one enemy that cripples believers to move forward! Fear of the unknown! Fear of how people perceive us! Fear of failure! Fear can stop us from GROWING! Fear can stop us from GOING! But THANK GOD that He is on our side and the BEST antidote to fear is our Daddy God’s perfect love for us.
“THERE IS NO ROOM IN LOVE FOR FEAR. WELL-FORMED LOVE BANISHES FEAR. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love.” 1 John 4:18 MSG
With Him upholding us with His righteous right hand, we can be secure in our walk with Him. He is never early nor delayed. He makes sure that His whispers we hear. His voice keeps us from being confused as sharp discernment rises in us to know where He’s taking us. He graces us to run this race with Him for us to reach the expected end … a hope (confident expectation of good) and a beautiful future. But most of all, He delights to see us enjoying this journey with Him where He ambushes us with surprises along the way that makes Him hear His children giggling with unspeakable joy!
