Enlarge your Tent!

Enlarge

“Enlarge the place of your tent,
And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;
Do not spare;
Lengthen your cords,
And strengthen your stakes.
Isaiah 54:2
We are entering into a season in the prophetic where expansion, enlargement, dimension changing opportunities, educational pursuits and completions, transfers of wisdom and knowledge and the miraculous are taking place.
Here we see God addressing this barren and desolate people and commanding them to ENLARGE!
This word enlarges means to make room and expand.
During Isaiah’s time, tents consisted of an outer tent and an inner tent. The inner tent was constructed from curtains that were used to define the actual dwelling space that would be used within the tent.
So there were actual dimensions of this tent that were not even being utilized.
God is saying “ I want you to live out in the FULLNESS of your capacity…Enlarge your way of thinking! Enlarge your relationship with Me! Enlarge in the area of serving! Enlarge your love walk! ENLARGE”!
The enemy has placed false restrictions in front of you (a stronghold), which is a mental or spiritual barrier that has been constructed through past injury or traumas, in order to limit or hinder the perceived potential of the believer.
Vicious words have gone forth into the very heart of these precious ones causing a demonic playback and repeat of lies telling them that they are always going to be in the same condition.
Proverbs 26:22 says The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. .
We say to ourselves …”It has always been this way” or “Nothing ever changes” and you feel as if you can’t go any farther.
But THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!
God is using every affliction as a setup to enlarge us!
The word of God says in Exodus 1:12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew!
You don’t have to tolerate the enemy whispering a death sentence over your destiny! RISE UP and Declare the Promises of God for your life! Then rebuke and replace the lies of the enemy by renewing your mind with the Word of God!
ENLARGE!
Prayer: Heavenly Father we cast down every false restriction and imagination from the enemy. We declare right now by the precious blood of Jesus that we are MORE than a conqueror and we SHALL walk out the Divine plan and purpose you have placed us here for in Victory! In Jesus name, Amen

    Praise the Lord Pastor Carman, I can’t tell you how much of a blessing it was to hear from God speaking through you to my spirit. Many times we as believers think that since God is the source and the strength of our life, that he will move on our behalf whenever, wherever, and the way we ask him to without fail. However, when God is “Enlarging the borders of our Tent”, he is always looking to work something in us and something out of us. I found that reading and meditating on this portion of your letter was simply profound and enlightening.

    “So there were actual dimensions of this tent that were not even being utilized.
    God is saying “ I want you to live out in the FULLNESS of your capacity…Enlarge your way of thinking! Enlarge your relationship with Me! Enlarge in the area of serving! Enlarge your love walk! ENLARGE”!
    The enemy has placed false restrictions in front of you (a stronghold), which is a mental or spiritual barrier that has been constructed through past injury or traumas, in order to limit or hinder the perceived potential of the believer.”

    This clearly show and fulfills I Cor 10: 13, There has no temptation taken us but such as is common to man; and how God is faithful and will not allow us to be tempted above that we are able and will with that temptation also make a way to escape that we will be able to bare it. In other words, when we go through, we should know that we can endure all things through Christ that strengthens us. We are never overcome with more than we can handle; many times we just don’t live up to our capability of enduring the temptation. When we don’t handle the trial as God wants us to, it makes us and God look like life is unfair for the believer. However, God says, that he that endures temptation will receive a crown of life that fades not away.

    Pastor Carman, God has commissioned you to be a great orator of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in these last and evil days; to set at liberty them that are bruised and to strengthen those of a weary contrite spirit. Now I understand through the things that you have written why God wants to extend the borders of our tents so we can reach out to a sick and dyeing world. The things that we are having to endure is not for and about us; it’s so that the Body of Christ can be blessed by our afflictions. Even as by Jesus’s stripes we are healed, God has allowed us to be blessed by this great message, “Enlarge Your Tents” by the things you have suffered.

    Thank you for being a transparent Woman of God and for allowing us to benefit from your testimony of what God has given you, in order to strengthen the believers. I will keep you in my prayers that God will continue to use your ministry to be a great blessing to the Body of Christ.

    So much that I have come across recently has been confirmatory over what I have read and understood about the word of God, and this, in talking about “dimension changing opportunities, educational pursuits and completions, transfers of wisdom and knowledge” is perfect for me completing my Masters, when I am overwhelmed by the task of my 12,000 word dissertation: This course came about ‘by accident’ and looks like the means to a key to unlock a door I’ve just looked at for years, Praise God. Thank you and God bless your ministry.
