Let’s never despise the day of small beginnings! Our God loves to meet us right where we are at. Jesus’ disciples watched a little boy give their master his few loaves of bread and fish, and 5000 were fed. The young man took a step of faith, gave his lunch away, and then watched it multiply exponentially.
Did you know that in 1900, only 9% of Africa believed in Jesus? Today, 46% of those who live in the continent ofAfricahave given themselves to Christ. We live in amazing times. Did you know that one of every five persons worldwide is now living for Christ? For every person born today, 3.5 persons will give their lives to Jesus Christ. But we need to take steps of faith to see this happen around us. Our God’s plan is to use us!
Isaiah 54:2-3 promises us the Lord will expand our borders to the right and to the left as we drive our tent pegs in deeper. “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your chords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left, your descendents will dispossess nations…”
As we grow deeper in our relationship with the Lord through prayer, worship and by meditating on the Word of God, and then take Spirit-led steps of faith, we will experience the kingdom of God expanding through us. Our God loves to pour out His Spirit on those who are willing to take small steps of faith and trust Him to do the rest.
What is the step of faith the Lord is calling you to take today? This is your season to watch the Lord expand His kingdom through you.
