My child, I promise you not only will I deliver you from every challenge, but I also promise to expand or increase you in your calling or location in life. Two are things happening:
- Deliverance or liberation of a person comes first from a temporary state of confinement or isolation.
- Increase and expansion come in your area of influence.
My servant David is a good example of this:
- As a boy David killed a bear.
- He killed a lion. (note: a lion is more vicious than a bear)
- He faced the giant Goliath and he thought on his past from the paw of a bear and the lion, ‘He will deliver me from the hand of this uncircumcised Philistine!’ Again David is increasing and growing – to the whole army of Israel.
- After Goliath I rescued him from the hand of King Saul, expanding his reputation in all of Israel to all of Judah!
- He became King and was delivered from a lead by Absalom and his influence increased to the nations.
Be encouraged! I will deliver you from your present situation and increase your influence.
There shall enlargement and deliverance arises. (Esther 4:14 TLB)
And call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall honor and glorify Me. (Psalm 50:15 the Amplified)
Don’t be intimidated in any way by your enemies. This will be a sign to them that they are going to be destroyed, but that you are going to be saved, even by God himself. For you have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ but also the privilege of suffering for him. (Philippians 1:28-29 NLT)
