I Am Stretching Your Capacity!
I woke up hearing these words so loud and clear, "I am stretching your capacity." There are many definitions for capacity, but this definition stood out to me the most, "the ability or power to do, experience, or understand something." With Luke 1:37 For nothing will be impossible with God, and Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, being my focus scriptures this year, I am in expectation of God doing greater things in my life. I see how God is stretching my ability and power to do, experience, and understand things in him on a whole new level.
Stretching your capacity reminded me of Jabez's prayer. Jabez called upon the God of Israel, saying, "Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain!" And God granted what he asked (1 Chronicles 4:10 ESV). Like Jabez, there have been many people crying out to God for expansion, blessings, and change in different areas of their life. Just as God granted what Jabez asked, I believe God is doing that for us by stretching our capacity. He is allowing us to go deeper in him and the things He desires us to do for the kingdom, as well as giving us a supernatural ability to do what we didn't think we could do. We are experiencing greater levels of breakthrough and blessings spiritually, financially, relationally, mentally, and physically!!
My prayer is that we recognize the growth God is doing in and around us. Even if things don't appear to be changing rest assure that God is moving on your behalf. Many blessings to you all as God begins or continues to stretch your capacity in various areas of your life!!
