SAY “NO! ” TO FEAR.
Text: Isaiah 54:2-4
“ Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out.. and fear no expense…For you will soon be bursting at the seams…
Fear not; you will no longer live in shame…
Don’t be afraid; you will not be disgraced! ” – (NLT)
DESIRE TO EXPAND…
Fear paralyses initiative!
No matter the limitations and adverse conditions staring you in the face, desire to expand; to increase and to make progress in every area of your life!
Don’t limit yourself!
Don’t be your own enemy!
Don’t say, ” I can’t expand! ”
Don’t say, ” I don’t have anybody to help me.”
Rise up; go to God and cry out to him, ” Lord, help me! I want to increase. Open my eyes to something… give me a divine idea! ” (Read Isaiah 50:7-8; Genesis 11:6; Habakkuk 2:1-4. )
DON’T ENTERTAIN FEAR!
Don’t be lazy!
Don’t procrastinate! Venture! Take steps! Do something! Sow seeds! Make investments! Be creative – you have the mind of Christ (i.e., supernatural intelligence – 1Corinthians 2:16)!
Don’t entertain fear! God works with your faith not your fear!
TRUST YOUR GOD!
You need to trust this your God. If God says, “Expand! “; then trust him and go ahead and do what he says. Don’t listen to whatever the devil is telling you. Take your eyes off whatever he’s drawing your attention to – Read Jonah 2:8.
When you fear it means you don’t trust God – you’re doubting what he has said. That is counterproductive – read James 1:5-8. Don’t hurt your own dream! If God has spoken, then make your plans and go for it. Be resolute!
God said, “Don’t be afraid, you will not be disgraced! ” Just work with his leading and instructions.
HOW WILL IT HAPPEN?
Don’t go wondering, “How will it happen? ” Remember? You were created with the ability to increase and multiply. It’s all in you – Genesis 1:26-28.
Besides, Jesus has come – John 10:10! So it’s time for increase! It’s time for increase! It’s time do expansion! It’s time for enlargement! Praise God!
