Extend: exert or exercise oneself to the utmost.
As Christians, we are called to continual growth.
We know that when we get saved, we can not remain the same as before. And we also know that God is continuously calling us higher, and bringing us from glory to glory. As such, this requires change and growth.
We should never cease growing and striving for more of God. We will never reach a finish line or receive too much of God.
And everyday, we should be extending ourselves — stretching ourselves to our utmost, and making room for more.
God is willing to pour out, but have you made room for Him? Extend yourself today. Stretch. And let God fill you up.
