Thoughts of Devotion:
The year 2021 is already in front of us. God has allowed us to live in this times and moments in history. The question is what anticipate for this year is one thing. My question is rather, what does God anticipate for us? God has plans and purposes for our lives. The year 2021 is not a time to take a break, to put a hold in God’s plans, or even to stop in our spiritual growth. On the contrary the words that the Holy Spirit is giving us is expansion, growth, increase and enlargement. The Holy Spirit desires to bring an action, an internal work in us of personal, local and international expansion.
The word expansion is to achieve an increase in the surface of something, that it would occupy more place or space than it previously occupied. Possibly in the past years we have been able to grow and bear fruit. But we must prepare ourselves because God wants to bring an even greater growth process in you, in multiple areas of your life, family and ministry. There are no exceptions! We cannot be satisfied… God’s promise is, “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). We must believe that God’s promise is for us.
The year 2021 is the time to put aside sterility and lack of fruit, the days of producing nothing. Always being in short supply and miserable may be something from our past, something that has been left behind, in the name of Jesus! Today we must raise a praise of joy and gladness as Isaiah 54: 1 tells us, “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.” Let us pray that his promise will be fulfilled in us, that we will not be left out of God’s plans and will for us, Amen!
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.”
