“Enlarge the place of your tent,
stretch your tent curtains wide,
do not hold back;
lengthen your cords,
strengthen your stakes.
God has commanded us in this season not to hold back. It seems many are going through some type of a transition. Transitions may encompass a promotion or what seems to be a demotion. Transitions may be a move to another city or country. The transition can be an empty nest, the building of a growing family, a wedding, or a marriage that has come to an end.
Whatever transition we find ourselves in, God is commanding us to be fearless :“do not hold back.” It is time to prepare for more room to be occupied, more souls to be saved, us proclaiming that Jesus saves with uncompromising boldness, more people hearing our story about the faithfulness of God, the compassion and grace that abounds, restoration, and new victories.
To not hold back, it is implied to not have fear yet to make accessions.
Definition and synonyms of acession(s): the attainment or acquisition of a position o rank or power; the addition to an existing collection, the formal acceptance of a treaty or agreement. Multiplication, affirmation, seal o approval, raise, increment, accumulation, recognition, and rise.
