Lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes; you are going to expand to the right and to the left. I say, get ready for expansion in a number of areas. Let Me first expand your vision to see more of My kingdom and your purpose and position in it. Let Me expand your heart to believe and receive all that I have prepared. For indeed, I have gone before you and prepared the way. I have established your going out and your coming in, and I will lead you in the paths that have been made ready. Let Me expand your willingness to reach beyond what has been familiar and comfortable, and let Me remove the fear that would hinder your progress and keep you in the safe zone. I tell you the truth, nothing ventured; nothing gained.
