God made ultra clear my main assignment for Him in streets ministry in New York City was no longer the small area it had mostly been in previous seasons of ministry there but now was a much expanded territory.
When God expands our territory in any area of our lives, whether concerning our life calling, jobs, volunteering, relationships, family, travel, where we live, schooling, etc., we may be tempted to hold onto what feels familiar, comfortable, what we have always known, what is simple and easy, what is pleasing to the flesh, what feels doable, etc.
But we should hold onto God instead. We should cry out to Him in prayer. We should surrender ourselves to the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit of God will provide all the love, power, strength, courage, resources, etc. we need to fulfill His will in the expanded territory to which God calls us!
Is God expanding your territory? Pray and obey!
