STRETCH! That word has blazed in my spirit this week.

Have you recently felt like you’re entering uncharted territory or waiting to take possession of new territory? I sure have, and if there has ever been a season I saw those around me walk through transitions all at once, RIGHT NOW is that moment!

I deeply believe God is asking us to stretch! In fact, yesterday evening a video popped up in my YouTube feed from Pastor Bill Johnson that reaffirmed for me I was indeed hearing from God. Here’s the link if you’d like to watch it. As soon as I heard him say “stretch,” I wanted to share the scriptures he mentioned and type a few lines to push you forward in your faith today!

“Enlarge your house; build an addition.

    Spread (STRETCH) out your home, and spare no expense!

For you will soon be bursting at the seams.

    Your descendants will occupy other nations

    and resettle the ruined cities.

“Fear not; you will no longer live in shame.

    Don’t be afraid; there is no more disgrace for you.

You will no longer remember the shame of your youth

    and the sorrows of widowhood.

Isaiah 54:2-4 NLT

I encourage you to read the entire chapter and if you’re a man, this is not a message confined to women. It is for all of us as we are all purposed to carry the promises of God. God has so much for you in this year of 2023! STRETCH! You have to prepare and make room in order to have the capacity to possess those things God is gifting to you. What you have prayed for according to His will, YOU WILL SEE IT! I am standing in faith with you.
