BY VERONIKA WEST - A Prophetic Word
Watch! We are being spiritually enlarged, expanded and increased; it’s time to possess our promised land!
The Hebrew word רָחָב ‘rachab’ means ‘to grow large’, ‘to grow wide’, to go beyond, to make more room, to increase capacity, to break out, to breakthrough, to expand, to go further, to occupy new territories, no limits, no boundaries, thinking bigger, broadened and robust!
I believe as sons and daughters we have a prophetic command in this season, to “possess our promised land; it’s time to enlarge our territory.”
We have responsibility to obey this instruction from God. With the help and wisdom of the Holy Spirit let’s try to begin to identify the areas of our lives where God is looking to enlarge, expand and increase us, let’s ask him to do that for us in this season.
In this hour it’s time for our faith to fly, we must not hold back. It’s time to unleash the power of our faith, hope and confidence in God, as we do this we will watch Him demonstrate His unlimited power and resources in our lives.
Decree; it’s time for my capacity to enlarge and increase; the old wine skin has expired it is time to expand!
Now as we know the father has the capacity, ability and the willingness to bless us exceedingly and abundantly. So, why then are many of us in the body of Christ, not walking in and experiencing all the blessings that we have been promised?
I believe it has something to do with our limited capacity to receive what is being released in this hour.
There is a prophetic command in this season to ‘enlarge the place of our tent’, the resources of his glory and power has no end. However I believe that the capacity on earth will always determine how much heaven is able to release!
It makes sense doesn’t it! In order to receive more we must increase and expand more! A great example of this was when the poor widow was told to collect as many empty jars as possible, to be filled with oil. And as we know and see from this simple story as soon as the “Capacity” of all the jars was filled, the oil ceased to flow!
Decree; I must increase to receive what heaven is releasing in this hour.
Therefore our “Capacity determines the flow”. We can only expect to receive a flow that corresponds with the capacity we have to contain that flow.
Our faith must expand and increase! The word says, ‘then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you”.
We also see another example, “Give, and it will be given to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you”.
We are promised that we will receive the same measure back to the proportion of the capacity that is presented in heaven. Prophetically we must align ourselves with expansion and increase as this will determine the supernatural flow we become partakers of.
I see so many experiencing low levels of supernatural flow because they have ceased to position themselves for expansion and increase.
Let’s tap into the keys that are revealed in the word, on how we can be enlarged and increase!
In Isaiah 54 we see five specific commands: enlarge, stretch, lengthen, strengthen and do not hold back. Here we see the heart of the father, he so desires we increase so he can pour out and pour out, he is a generous God that gives us all more than we could ever ask for or imagine.
Knowing that our capacity determines what we are able to contain and receive, we must understand that God will not release to us a blessing that we are not yet able to handle and steward well.
Decree; delay is not denial. In this season I am increasing and expanding.
Our capacity is indeed the measure of what we can receive, hold or absorb, and it reflects our potential, resourcefulness and skillfulness. Now to increase our capacity, we must go beyond the current state and ability to receive or contain, and begin to build up and expand our gifts and abilities.
Let’s take a practical look in the word at what a “Limited capacity”, looks like. Jesus instructs Simon Peter to launch out his boat into the deep, with nets for a catch, and yet Simon’s response was a good indication of having a “limited capacity”!
Simon answered him,
“Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at your word I will let down the net, and when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.”
Do you see, Simon started with a “Limited capacity” but his obedience to Jesus’s instruction brought him forth into increase and expansion.
What is Father saying to you in this season?
What instructions is He giving you that you are not doing because of a “limited capacity”?
Your faith is weak; you are fearful of failure; you are leaning on your own understanding; you are leaning on the arm of the flesh; you are under estimating his power to supply all your needs; you are listening to the lies of the enemy; you are afraid to be rejected and misunderstood.
To be in perfect alignment means to never underestimate the power of God and to always trust and obey.
Friends, the time is now!
Heaven is releasing supernatural supple to enable, equip and empower you for expansion and increase. The question is, will you give Him “capacity” for it?
Decree; my mind is being rewired and renewed, my heart is being expanded and my faith is being stretched. I am receiving a greater flow of supernatural ability and supply to fulfill and accomplish my God given destiny.
I prophesy: God is expanding your capacity to receive all that heaven is releasing and revealing in this hour.
As you come into a deeper place of intimacy with the Father in this season every blessing that has been held back because of limited capacity is going to be released and revealed to you.
There is an upgrade and a download of Kingdom resources being made available to you as you step out and into the deeper places with God.
Ask; as you recognize the need for an enlarged capacity, ask and it shall be given you. Go for it. Jabez asked for God to bless him indeed and God granted him his request!
Reflect and repent; for doubt, fear, unbelief and putting limitations on God.
It is time to be stretched beyond the current state and challenge change for increase to come. Do not settle for less but be stretched for more. Let faith fly and become bolder in your requests and obey the call to step up, step out and step into the new place.
Get out of your comfort zone and resist procrastination and passivity. Become motivated and sober minded, do not compromise or complain but rejoice and make a stand, let your yes be yes, and your no be no!
Stop being double-minded and doubting his goodness, you are more than a conqueror through Christ. You will walk in a spirit of excellence and expand your capacity in this season.
Watch! Vision is now being expanded. Time to expand your vision! As you begin to enlarge you will come into all that God has created you for, look up!
Do not look back, keep looking forward. Like Joseph the word/vision from God will be tried and tested, so be patient, God’s timing is perfect.
Stay aligned! Think like God thinks! That means, let your thoughts line up with His Word, dream big! Challenge small minded thinking! You are his child, you are a king, you are a high priest, you chosen of God. Think Kingdom!
Be wise! Always remain teachable! None of us have arrived. God resists the proud but gives grace, grace, and grace to the humble! We need one another!
It is time to cross over into increase and expansion. Determine now in your heart that you will go beyond the boundary lines, the devil cannot stop you and the past cannot hold you. The lines he has drawn for you have fallen in pleasant places.
You must believe to receive it. You are going further, deeper and higher than you have ever gone before.
I decree Kingdom increase, enlargement and expansion over you all today.
Blessings to you all.
