Achieving your potential

Chris Ball, president of Elim Fellowship (to which N3C is a member), was guest speaker on 3/19/17 and urged the congregation to act on Isaiah 54:2 to remove things from their lives that are preventing God from working through their lives to accomplish His ends.  Familiar translations of that verse are similar to the NIV:

“Enlarge the place of your tent,
stretch your tent curtains wide,
do not hold back;
lengthen your cords,
strengthen your stakes.
In the Message version, that verse is rendered as:
“Clear lots of ground for your tents!
Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big!
Use plenty of rope,
drive the tent pegs deep.
