Expansion is the order of this season. You can reach higher, go deeper, and search wider to know Me more intimately and to accomplish that which is set before you, says the Lord. Refuse to allow a sense of not being capable to cripple your efforts. Go forth with courage and expectation.

Let the past rest. You can do nothing about missed opportunities, mistakes you have made, or poor judgments. You must deliberately let go of regrets. At the same time you can acknowledge the things you did wrong and make calculated adjustments. However, the only way you can do better is by living and walking in the Spirit. I will give you the wisdom necessary to succeed in all that I have set before you, says The LORD.
James 1:5-6 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”

Take a breath and settle down, says The LORD. I know your sense of urgency and impatience to get a move on, but right now I need you to be tolerant and long-suffering. Otherwise, you will remove yourself from the flow of divine destiny. Keep yourself in My Spirit and take life as it comes with the grace I will provide.
Romans 16:24 “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.”

Go beyond your spiritual boundaries. Look, listen, and discern all that I am showing you. There is much clarity to gain and many things to understand.
