There is a prophetic move in our day to extend the frontiers of the Kingdom of God and enlarge our influence, potential, grace and impact on our world. Despite this move of the spirit, there are some hindrances that must be addressed if our lives will be a fulfillment of His words.

 

1.      Sin: It is disobedience to God’s word and it includes incomplete obedience and delayed obedience. Sin will hinder a man from experiencing enlargement unless it is repented, confessed and forsaken (not to be covered). (Prov. 28:13)

You must be willing and obedient in order to enter into divine enlargement. Don't let your obedience be incomplete like Peter’s who let down the “net” and not the “nets”. The word of God will become work that must be done to enjoy enlargement. Disobedience to God’s word carries a curse and no one can make it under a curse (Deut. 28:15-68). To be cursed is to be empowered to fail.

In the battle of Ai, sin denied the Israelites enlargement until the sin was dealt with. Deal with the sin in your life if you will experience enlargement. It was sin that denied Reuben his inheritance and made him an unstable man.

2.      Unfaithfulness – A Christian who has not passed the test of faithfulness does not qualify himself for enlargement. There is faithfulness in that which is least (small), faithfulness in the unrighteous mammon (money) and faithfulness with another man’s things (what belongs to others).

Enlargement means more responsibility and anyone who has been found unfaithful in his or her present level cannot move to the next level. In the school of God, no one is promoted on trial!

“And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority overten cities. (Luke. 19:17).”

 

Are you faithful at your present level? There is no enlargement by God for an unfaithful person. Pick up your assignments again and step up your responsibility for a divine trust.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive an obedient heart and grace to be faithful in all the things you have committed into my hands. Thank you for forgiving me all my sins, I confess and forsake them in Jesus’ name Amen.
