Step into the land I have promised to you and find victory. When you are walking with Me, I will hide you under My wings. That is where the enemy cannot find you.


When you learn to hang on to the promises of God, you take God’s commitment to you seriously. You learn He’s that good!

Doesn’t it make you want to find out what those promises are and start living by them? Those things are gifts from a loving Daddy for your edification. He’s teaching you where to stand – on His promises. 

Yes, standing on the promises of God glorifies Him. There is no better place to be than firmly planted on His goodness, His commitment to you and His plan for your life. What? Those promises are all to bring you to your purpose – your Promised Land.  

In the Promised Land, the battles you fight are for vision and purpose, not survival. The Promised Land is way past survival. There are too many Christians living in survival mode right now. They don’t know, or have forgotten, the promises of God.

Jesus tells us not to worry about what we’re going to eat or wear. He’s not saying to not be responsible for what you eat and wear, but He’s telling you to not live your life as a survivor. Without a knowledge of God’s promises for your life, that’s all you are – a survivor.

Not me. I have studied the scriptures and go after each and every upgrade by standing on the rock solid promises of my Abba Father. I remind Him of them and He smiles every time I do because that’s when He can truly use me for His purposes.

How about you? Do you know the promises of God and how to activate them for your Promised Land? Don’t just survive, thrive by accepting these gifts with a grateful heart. The promise of milk and honey is for you, today.

And I have promised to bring you up out of your misery in Egypt into the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites – a land flowing with milk and honey. – Exodus 3:17
