Enlarged Steps

Scripture Reading: 2 KINGS 6: 24-25, 7: 1-20


“For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.” (2 Kings 7: 6)

When the four lepers at the gate of Samaria moved towards the camp of the Syrians, God caused the Syrians to hear the noise of chariots, of horses, and of a great host. What the Syrians heard were not the footsteps of four lepers; what they heard were the noise of a multitude of soldiers and their military horses and chariots. So God enlarged the steps of the lepers, and what was heard exceeded who they were.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: God is enlarging your steps, and what your generation will see through you will be more than you ordinarily are. God will enlarge your steps and cause you to generate results that you ordinarily would not generate. God will enlarge your steps and cause you to do more than your human capacity would ordinarily do; God will enlarge your steps and cause your impact to exceed your efforts.

A great multitude of soldiers would have been needed to put the entire Syrian army to flight, but four lepers whose steps were enlarged by God got the job done. Four lepers were divinely assisted to do more. God will empower you to do more and achieve more. God will empower you to achieve the results that only a multitude should achieve; God will empower you to achieve the results that only great men should achieve.

The steps of the lepers were not enlarged as they remained at the gate of Samaria; their steps were enlarged as they moved to the camp of the Syrians. Their steps were enlarged when they moved. As you step out of your comfort zone and move towards your goals, your steps will be divinely enlarged. As you move, God will cause your targets to hear a great noise in your favour.

Arise and move, and God Himself will enlarge your steps.


My steps are divinely enlarged; I achieve more than I should, in Jesus’ name!
