Many churches have seen their numbers increase at weekend services, at prayer meetings, and at youth meetings since lockdown. Zoom, Google meets and Facebook have reached more people spiritually than at any other time in the history of the internet. Could it be that God allowed covid because He wants to enlarge our territory and also to increase our capacity?
Trials come to enlarge us and increase us. God has many blessings in store for you! He has favour in your future like youâ€™ve never imagined. He wants to take you places that youâ€™ve never even dreamed. But in order for us to partake of all these blessings, we have to increase our capacity to receive.
You may have heard me say this before, 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 donâ€™t 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. Itâ€™s the same way with God. If we think weâ€™ve reached our limits, the problem isnâ€™t that God doesnâ€™t have the resources or the ability. The problem is that our container is too small. So, God will allow trails like covid to stretch us.
Today, we have to enlarge our vision and make room for the new things God has for us. After covid and lockdown our attitude should be, â€œyes, the economy is down, but I know God is still on the throne. I know wherever I go His goodness and mercy follows me.â€ When you have that kind of attitude, youâ€™re increasing your capacity to receive in abundance, so get ready with your bigger blessing bucket, so that you can receive all He has in store for you.
â€œEnlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold backâ€¦â€(Isaiah 54:2, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, I thank You in advance for giving me abundant blessings. Thank You Father that during Covid-19 you are, and have, increased my capacity to receive from You. God, I let go of limited thinking and old mindsets, and I open myself to everything You have in store for me. Show me Your ways that I may walk with You, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
