EnLarge Your Plans
“And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.” (Genesis 13:14-17)
Today’s Morsel: It is reported that Dwight Moody’s farewell words to his sons as he lay upon his deathbed were:” If God be your partner, make your plans large.” Abraham was known as the friend of God. God had promised to bless him beyond measure. Can you imagine this relationship between Abraham and God? Everywhere your eyes can see, God said, I have given it to you. WOW! Notice what God told Joshua after the death of Moses. “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” (Joshua 1:3-5) As soon as you became born-again of the water and the Spirit, you should have enlarged plans, because the same promises that God made to Abraham are available to you as well.
Sing: Every promise in the book is mine, every chapter, every verse, every line; all are blessings of His love divine, every promise in the book is mine.
Thought For Today: “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; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.” (Isaiah 54:2-3)
