Think big


Isaiah 54:2-3 “Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;  For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

God has marvelous plans for his people, however we seldom tap into it leaving those outside the covenant to appropriate the blessings. We serve a big God, the creator of the heavens and the earth, yet a lot of believers think like peasants. In the era where tons of items are being shipped to war ravaged nations, some believers are still praying for daily bread.  There are different administrations and dispensations in the bible- Under the law, God taught the Jewish nation prudency and total dependency on him by giving them manna daily; we are in a different era where we have been given all things that pertains unto life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3).

A lot of believers think too small to make an impact in life, godliness is not synonymous to poverty. JC penny a very successful business man was a committed believer and a billionaire, the same can be said of Michael Faraday the famous scientist who was a sunday school teacher. Christianity doesn’t turn men into dummies, it gives us dominion. From our anchor scripture today, God expects us to enlarge our vision and our capacity to be able to receive the blessings available. A 4 litre gallon can’t accommodate 10 litre volume of water, hence God is saying to his church, ‘I have big plans for you but your vision is not big enough to handle it.’ The Spirit of the lord is saying, ‘I want you to break forth on all sides but your knowledge, vision, and goals are too small to receive from me, enlarge it’.

God knew Abram couldn’t count the stars yet he told him to come our of his tent of limitation and count it to enlarge his view (Genesis 15:5); God was working on the mind of Abram because what your mind can’t conceive, your life can’t contain. Secondly, God told Abram after lot was seperated from him to look round the environ for he is committed to blessing him to the degree of his vision (Genesis 13:15).

Beloveth, God doesn’t determine how far we go in life, it is as far as our eyes can see.
