SEPTEMBER 10 – 16, 2017
“The Lord will cause your kingdom to grow, beginning at Zion, until you rule the lands of your enemies!” (Psalm 110:2 ERV)
Pondering on this verse, my mind was tickled with different understandings. One of which I would love to share with you. I pray that it blesses and inspires you as it did me, to live the full, rich and satisfying life that overflows to others; the life that Jesus gave His life so we can have.
Get ready for expansion because you’re about to break forth into arenas you never thought possible. Your light is about to extend into quarters you never dreamed of. Did they laugh at you? Did they scorn you? Did they disqualify you? Did they say you will never make it? Did they say you will always be a failure? Did they say without them you are nothing? Whatever they said, is all about to change because the time is now come for the true you, the influential you to be manifested. It is time for them to sit under your influence. Get ready!
Although David in the text and most of this psalm was speaking concerning Jesus, but that’s us today, because Jesus lives on the earth today as you and I. Remember Galatians 2:20? Therefore, whatever kingdom we have been given (our sphere of influence), God will cause it to grow until we dominate the land of our enemies.
The growth of our kingdom will begin from Zion; the city of our God. What does this mean? Keep your FOCUS on the kingdom of God. Keep your focus on carrying out the work the kingdom of God sent you here for. As you do so, just as was with Jesus when He walked on the earth, your whole body will be full of light; you will manifest on earth the power and the greatness of the kingdom.
Therefore, offer your body and mind to God and let the Holy Spirit mature you in Christ. As you mature in the knowledge of God’s word. As you consciously, intentionally, intensely and continuously change to be more of who you were created to be by the renewing of your mind (taking on Jesus’ thinking, attitude and ways of doing things), you will see clearly the life that God wants you to live, the way He wants you to live it and receive the empowerment to live it.
I say get ready because in a short while you will need to “Make your tent larger, stretch your tent curtains farther out! Spare no effort, lengthen your ropes, and pound your stakes deep. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your children will conquer nations and will resettle desolate cities.” (Isaiah 54:2-3 NET). Hallelujah!!
So my dear Reader, get ready to release the influential you by pursuing hard after, chasing hard after, focusing hard after knowing and becoming more of who you are. Grow! Grow! And Grow! Let your soul prosper! For as it does, your whole body and life will prosper (1 John 3:2). Make the prosperity of your soul your number 1 priority. As you grow, all the barriers, challenging situations or habits, stumbling blocks… be it things, thoughts, circumstances, situations or people that worked against you as enemies to your progress, peace and prosperity will fall down flat at feet.
It is my deepest desire that your soul longs after God just as the deer pants for water. I pray that this week, you will experience a strong desire to keep company with God, making the knowledge of who you are and the hunger to walk in that light your number one priority. I bless you this week, and I say, expand! Be influential! Be powerful! The Lord your God is with you. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen!! God bless you specially!!
