This scripture speaks to me of preparation as He prepares to stretch our boundaries and increase His family. We aren't just making things...we are preparing the way into the inner courtroom of His heart - as we let the curtain of our habitation be stretched out over the land. Let us lengthen our sphere of influence, while keeping our "stakes" firmly planted in Him.
I have a friend who is expecting any day now, for months they have prepared their house and their hearts to hold their little lamb. How do we prepare our hearts and our homes for those "children" that the Lord crosses our paths with? Do we have time in our schedule to invite them into our dwelling place, the dwelling place of the Lord? The word says "spare not" are we willing to sacrifice time and talent in order raise up a new generation of Christians? Let us lengthen the cords of our hearts as we allow the Lord to intersect our lives with heavenly appointments.
