Day One: Prepare For Expansion

“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.” Isaiah 54:2-3 (NIV)

This year, the theme for Alive City Church is growth and expansion. This is not just the theme for the church but for you and your family also. God wants to increase everything concerning you in 2022. Isaiah 54, is the main scripture for our fast. We are standing on God’s Word to expand our territory, our spheres of influence and to give us the nations. God wants to grow the church upwards and outwards so that we can impact the community and spread the gospel to the nation. He also wants to expand your business, grow your family and increase your wisdom.

However, when we look carefully at the scripture, there are instructions for us to take action. We must prepare ourselves appropriately for this type of growth and expansion. We cannot live the same way and act the same as we did at a certain capacity. If we want to experience expansion we must do the following: ‘enlarge’, ‘stretch’, ‘do not hold back’, ‘lengthen’ and ‘strengthen’. Preparation is key and the onus to prepare for what is coming is on us, not God.

This year we need to stretch ourselves and out of our comfort zones. Growth and Expansion is not just a prayer request that goes up to heaven, but it comes with preparation from us. Action is required from us if we want to see the church grow. We need to enlarge our capacity to serve and to give. We need to stretch ourselves in prayer and in fasting. Not holding back our gifts and talents, to lengthen and strengthen us so that we are ready for the outbreak and the overflow.
