Enlarge the Site of Your Tent

Isaiah 54:2-3

Enlarge the site of your tent, and let your tent curtains be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your ropes, and drive your pegs deep. For you will spread out to the right and to the left and your descendants will dispossess nations and inhabit the desolate cities.

For God to work in our lives or in our ministry, we must make room for Him. If we keep everything in a nice, comfortable, predictable little box that we can control, we give Him no room to expand His kingdom through us. As a result, our world becomes small, stagnant, and unproductive.

To let our tent curtains be stretched out requires opening our ministry to those outside our tent. Anytime God is doing a work, it requires personal stretching, and we can expect that in our ministry, as well. We need to lengthen our ropes by lengthening our reach and extending beyond our current borders. To drive our pegs deep, we must delve even deeper into God’s word and make personal prayer and Bible study the backbone of our ministry. The deeper we go in Christ, the farther He is able to extend our reach and increase His kingdom.

My desire is that this ministry will somehow grow and become a true beacon of light for widows to know the love of Christ and find new identity in Him. When widows find their purpose and calling in Christ, their light will dispel the darkness that has been thrust upon them through loss, and His love will inhabit the desolate places that loss brings. Are you willing to be enlarged, stretched, lengthened, and driven?

A move of God is not always comfortable, but it is well worth the journey!

Have a blessed day!
