(Expand And Grow Exuberantly By The Anointing)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; for thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left…”” (Isaiah 54:2-3)
As a child of God, you have in you the anointing for expansion and exuberant growth; this is your birthright as Abraham’s seed. If you look through the Scriptures and study the lives of the physical descendants of Abraham, you’ll find that, no matter how they started, they ended up expanding and growing to the point that they became unstoppable and the ever-dominant force wherever they found themselves.
When you received the Holy Spirit, He brought the anointing into your life, and that anointing is supposed to do much more than make you speak in tongues and prophecy. It’ll cause everything you do to grow and expand. That anointing is the “mimshach” anointing, which in Hebrew means “expansion” or “to spread.”
This anointing causes everything you do to multiply and expand beyond your immediate sphere of contact. God wants you to recognise that anointing and let it function in you. You don’t need to wait for someone to help you; this is your time to grow luxuriantly! The anointing and grace for increase and expansion are upon your life; therefore grow beyond what your mind can imagine.
Go Deeper: Isaiah 54:2-3 MSG
Speak: Dear Father, thank you for your anointing which causes me to grow, expand, and multiply in whatever I lay my hands upon. As I recognise and take advantage of that anointing in my life today, my academic excellence, finances and influence are increasing and expanding in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
