Capsule 29: IF YOU DON’T EXPAND, YOU WON’T MULTIPLY
And it came to pass when the vessels were full that she said unto her son, bring me yet a vessel and he said unto her, there is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed. (2Kgs.4:6)
Today’s teaching addresses your finance and I pray in the name of Jesus that you will receive wisdom to expand and the power to multiply your seed. Amen. This is the story in 2kings chapter 4. The woman with her son were a deep financial mess. She did not know what to do to escape from the financial crises until the prophet appeared. Remember that you are a prophet in like passion as Elijah and Elisha. The prophet instructed the woman to get as many vessels as possible for the oil. The woman got some which were supernaturally filled with oil. So, for as long as there were empty vessels, there was oil to fill them. Then, this happened. There is not a vessel more, and the oil stayed (stopped) (2Kgs4:6b).
As the good and godly husbandman, God has a rich and prosperous plan for your business. God wants to increase you more and more. God wants to multiply that one store or shop you currently have. God wants you to grow and have all sufficiency in all things. But you have a responsibility to create more space for Him to fill. 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. (Is.54:2-3).
So, where do I begin to expand so that God can multiply me? You begin with your mind. Your mind is the seat of decision. Whatever you decide in your mind, determines and influences the outcomes of your life. If you do not expand your mind to see beyond where you are, you cannot become and get to where you ought to be in God’s plan. If you think small, you will be small. If you think big, you will be big. This because, “as a man thinks in his heart, so shall he be” (Pro.23:7). I have experienced the reality of this truth in my personal life, family and ministry. Before my encounter with this revealed truth in 2Kings chapter 4:6, I had not expanded my financial and material mindset for God to increase me. I was satisfied with the level I was. But when this truth dawned on me, I expanded my mind space and God began to honour my financial and material life as a man, husband, father and in ministry. Therefore, think big! Talk big! Stretch forth! lengthen your cords! Strengthen your stakes! It is the way to abundance.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, have mercy upon me for thinking small and less of Your abundance in my life.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, expand my mind space to behold Your abundant plan for my life and family.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me and make me live in abundance of Your riches.
I expand my mind space so that God can multiply my life spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially and materially because that is what makes me the good and godly husbandman to my wife, children and the marketplace of life in Jesus name. Amen.
