God works through the challenges that come to stretch us as a way of growing and improving our lives. That stretching is vital for our spiritual and natural growth. Many times God will send or allow situations our way so He can stretch us through them. Have you ever felt like you are in a situation you don’t deserve and surely don’t want, yet at the end of that event you discover that you have grown and been blessed through it? That is God stretching you.
You don’t know your limits. You have no idea what you are capable of. You have been limited by your thinking yet your God has a plan beyond your limits for your life. So He will stretch you and cause you to go beyond what you thought was your limit. He will stretch your faith and your ability to stand in the storm. God has a stretch plan for you that will make you far greater than you are today.
Simply say yes to those pressure moments God is bringing your way. Don’t choose the easy way out. Don’t throw-in the towel. Don’t leave the highway and take a short cut. When the pressure is on, hold your values to heart and trust God to take you through those moments into His perfect will. Keep your eyes and heart open to the stretching of God so you can allow Him to make you.
SCRIPTURE READING: 2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
Everlasting Father, I believe that you will stretch me and cause me to go beyond what I thought was your limit. Grant me the grace to articulate what you’re doing in me. Stretch my faith and ability to stand in the storm in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
