There is something humming in my spirit today that there is a shift and a change occurring. And God is saying, “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back, strengthen your stakes”. For you will spread out to the right and to the left.” (Isaiah 54:2-3)
Whenever a shift or change is on the way, if we are listening to God’s promptings He will begin to encourage us to stretch and expand our expectations, our horizons and our vision. He’ll encourage us to deal with issues and to shed any unnecessary weights or distractions. He will start revealing to us to look up and ahead, instead of behind at our past or down in the dust at our failures or disappointments. God guides us to position ourselves for new things so that we don’t miss any of what He is releasing.
Shifts and change mean we have the opportunity to push past limiting “stakes” in our life so we can spread out and increase our capacities to hold and inhabit all God wants to release in our lives. We position ourselves for what we are believing for in every area of our so that we are ready for God to move.
The bible says that even when we feel barren and think we have nothing, that is the perfect time for us to lift up our eyes to the future and heavens blueprint for our life and what He is releasing from heaven. That’s the time to declare what God is saying because He has a way through. God has the victory, the answer, the solution and He is on our side.
I’ve learnt over the years to sing out His promises even when I can’t see in the natural how anything is going to change. I’ve learnt not to look with my natural eyes, but with eyes of faith and trust believing that better things are ahead, that angels are right now working on my behalf, that solutions, provision, healing and breakthrough are mine. I’ve learnt that when I sense shifting and change coming to get ready and position myself fast because God is on the move.
Today I encourage you to agree with what’s coming out of heaven and choose to “declare and decree” God’s goodness and plan over your life and over your family, workplace, relationships, neighbourhood, city and nation. No longer see yourself or your circumstances as barren, dried up, beaten up, anxious, sick, old, or poor.
Today look and see with eyes of faith because God has a plan and strategy; a breaking through for every situation you are facing in your personal life and in the world today. Then stir yourself up in the promises of God, open your mouth and start declaring breakthrough, release and change for the better….and then get ready in whatever way you need to. Deal with your stuff, get rid of excess baggage, any sin or old habits and make room for God, because He is on the move!
“See, I am doing a new thing. Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:19)
“The God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.” (Roman’s 4:17)
“Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.” (Hebrews 11:1, 3 NLT)
Prayer: Lord thank you that breakthrough, expansion, release and change is coming straight out of heaven today. I believe for things to shift and change for the better in every circumstance of my life today. In Jesus name Amen.
