 Day 3: Wednesday, February 3

 You Shall Expand

 Topic: We Must Prepare For Expansion And Growth This Year 2021.

 For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations, And make the desolate cities inhabited.

 Isaiah 54:3 (NKJV)

 Daily Reading Plan

 Leviticus 5-7

 Bible Versions:

 Isaiah 54: 3 (NLT) – 3 For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.

 Isaiah 54: 3 (NIV) – 3 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: 3 (MSG) – 3 You’re going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family. You’re going to take over whole nations; you’re going to resettle abandoned cities.

 Thoughts of Devotion:

In this portion we see how God promises to give descendants to the people of Israel.  A future time when the inhabitants of Israel will be numerous and abundant.  They were in a state of sterility and without fruit.  At that time the childless (sterile) woman was a great shame, a great disgrace for her husband and her people.  But now a change was coming, a time of great multiplication and growth was coming.  In Galatians 4:27 he tells us, “For it is written: “Rejoice, O barren, You who do not bear! Break forth and shout, You who are not in labor! For the desolate has many more children Than she who has a husband.”

God invites his people to forget her shame and her sterility suffering.  The days of suffering, humiliation, and rejection were now behind her.  God’s promise was, They will reach out to the right and left hand!  It was a word of preparation;  they had to be ready for the days to come where they would experience great multiplication and growth.  There was a new day of hope for them as He promises in Isaiah 54: 7–8, “For a mere moment I have forsaken you, But with great mercies I will gather you. 8  With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,” Says the Lord, your Redeemer.”

I ask you, are you ready for the expansion that God wants to bring into your life?  The Holy Spirit wants to expand our spiritual life in this year 2021. If we prepare, then without a doubt God will do it in us.  God’s consolation for us this morning is get ready, you will no longer be sterile and fruitless!  The days of shame and humiliation are behind us.  It is time to lift up your voice in jubilation as verse 1 tells us, “Isaiah 54: 1, “Sing, O barren, You who have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, You who have not labored with child! For more are the children of the desolate Than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord.”  God does not lie, He fulfills what He has promised us! Amen.

Foundational Scriptures:

Isaiah 35: 1 (NKJV) – 1 The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;

Colossians 1:23 (NKJV) – 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.

Isaiah 54: 1 (NKJV) – 1 “Sing, O barren, You who have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, You who have not labored with child! For more are the children of the desolate Than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord.

Isaiah 54: 7–8 (NKJV) – 7 “For a mere moment I have forsaken you, But with great mercies I will gather you. 8  With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,” Says the Lord, your Redeemer. 

Galatians 4:27 (NKJV) – 27 For it is written: “Rejoice, O barren, You who do not bear! Break forth and shout, You who are not in labor! For the desolate has many more children Than she who has a husband.”
