TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
You are created in My image and I Am a warrior King. I Am also a Man of War. Arm yourself with My armor and join Me on the battlefield of your mind. We will not be overcome! Victory is ours!
I’VE GOT YOUR BACK
There are many lessons to learn in the Wilderness, but the main theme our Father God weaves through them all is this: God blesses pursuit.
In the Wilderness, we learn to stick with God no matter what. We are His people – His camp. Whatever the problem is, it’s not Him. It’s either the enemy or the in-a-me, and both are brutal masters. Not Father God. His yoke, the Word tells us, is not heavy.
In the Wilderness, you follow the Lord to survive. In the Promised Land, you follow vision and the Lord backs you up. In the Wilderness, He says, “Follow me and I’ll make a way.” In the Promised Land, He says, “You make a way. I’ve got your back.”
In the Wilderness, the miracle was you were fed manna from heaven and water from rocks. In the Promised Land, provision is never an issue. The miracle happens in pursuit of conquest.
So the question is, what are you pursuing? What are you trying to conquer? Addiction, mental stability, financial freedom, right relationships, a better job, a blessed and effective ministry – all these things are fair game in the Promised Land.
Joshua and the children of Israel, through God-given strategy and courage, took down walled cities, 31 ungodly kingdoms and killed evil warrior giants. You can do the same.
What are your strongholds? Anger, alcohol, porn or gossip? What giants are threatening your upgrade? Debt, depression, divorce? Pursue the Lord and His wisdom. Go after the thing that is hunting you and kill it with the blood of Jesus. Step into your Promised Land and don’t look back. Like Joshua and Caleb, victory is yours!
Then Joshua came at that time and cut off the Anakim from the hill country, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab and from all the hill country of Judah and from all the hill country of Israel. Joshua utterly destroyed them with their cities. – Joshua 11:21
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO STEP INTO YOUR PROMISED LAND. TAKE ON THE GIANTS THREATENING YOU BECAUSE GOD’S GOT YOUR BACK!
