A land flowing with milk and with honey. What does that mean?

Well, one of those things is a word of empowerment. Our generation thinks that empowerment is, “You give me free stuff.” No, that’s called “slavery,” where you give over your rights as a human being for free stuff. Just ask the Hebrews who refused to go into the Promised Land because the wilderness was familiar.

For the sons of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, until all the nation, that is, the men of war who came out of Egypt, perished because they did not listen to the voice of the LORD, to whom the LORD had sworn that He would not let them see the land which the LORD had sworn to their fathers to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey. – Joshua 5:6

Also, the mindset that, “I’m willing to be a slave as long as I have a good pharaoh,” is demonic. That’s not for you. Freedom is for you.

Empowerment says this: “You will live in a country where it doesn’t matter if you’re black, white, rich, or poor; you can find a way to go to better your circumstances.” That’s empowerment. It means you will get up off of your blessed assurance and find a way because you are free to do that.

Let’s say I empower you to go to college, I can’t make you get up and go to class or pass your test. I can’t make you stay in school. That’s on you.

The principle of empowerment is this: I will remove the obstacles for you to go as far as you want. That’s the Promised Land, and how far you go in the Promised Land is up to you.

See, you can’t blame your failure to live in this blessed place on the sovereignty of God – “It just wasn’t His will for me, or His plan for my life.” Why not? Because we’re under grace and the New Testament promise of Jesus. He says, “Yes” to us. It’s our job to follow that up with an, “Amen!”

Are you experiencing milk and honey in your life? If not, take responsibility. Go after your Kingdom purpose and dream big. You already know your Heavenly Father says, “Yes.”
