I pour into you constantly – love, grace, wisdom, creativity. Even My Holy Spirit is constantly flowing through you. Do you recognize My work in you? Take time to look for Me and you will find I’m always with you.


I want you to understand in the definition of “milk and honey.” Milk is what is basic. Honey is what is extravagant. 

So God promised the Hebrew slaves a land flowing – continual, far reaching – with basic needs and extravagant wants. Flowing with both of those things. 

Milk is what you need. Honey is what you want, and in the Promised Land, you get both. “But Pastor Troy, my life doesn’t work like that! My life works like the Rolling Stones, ‘You can’t always get what you want.’” 

That’s because you’re still in the wilderness. In the wilderness, you can’t get what you want. Brother Jagger, you need to learn the lesson of dependency in the wilderness so that you can get out of there and get what you want.

The battle you fight in the Promised Land is not for survival. In the Promised Land, you don’t fight the wrong battles. You fight the right battles. 

Now, for you to move from a place where you’re fighting the wrong battles, into a place where you fight the right battles, is a game changer. Jesus so wants to partner with you in fighting the right things. 

Many of you will spend decades of your lives totally messed up because you’re engaged in things that aren’t your assignment. It’s not what you’re supposed to be engaged in. You’re fighting the wrong things.

The battle for better is the right battle. The battle for milk and honey – a place where you lay your burden down and let Jesus take over the fight – that’s a battlefield you need to be on. 

Learn to depend on God for your provision. Boldly step into the Promised Land in that Rolling Stone area of your life and watch Jesus Mighty Warrior show up. He will back you up as you fight the battle for your promised land. 

“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” – 2 Corinthians 1:20
