TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
When I created the universe, I worked for six days, then I rested. If the works of My hands are good, then work itself is also good. Go after My blessings. Work at helping others and spreading My word. Your Promised Land will flow with goodness.
WORTH THE EFFORT?
When God tells you to step into your Promised Land, you don’t ask questions. You don’t hesitate, or think twice. You charge right into the Jordan River because you know what’s on the other side is good. The Word says, “it is a land flowing with milk and honey.”
Flowing means abundance. And milk, well, the Hebrew word we translate as milk actually means “butter.” What’s up with that? Well, butter always represents goodness – God’s goodness. And think about this: butter has to be produced by humans in cooperation with cows. That means you have to put a little elbow grease into it.
Yes, Father God expects you to work. Before God gave Adam a wife, a family, or even a pair of britches, He gave Adam a job.
“Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.” – Genesis 2:15
Now, honey is different. Honey is produced by nature itself and it represents the best things in life, or sweetness. A lot of things have to be in alignment for the production of butter and honey, and God is saying that your Promised Land is flowing with that.
That means it’s never about survival. It’s about conquest. It’s about marking out territory that doesn’t belong to the King and putting your foot on it so that it does. If your feet drip like butter, that means that everywhere you go you’re carrying the presence of heaven and the goodness of God.
“When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil…” – Job 29:6
Are your feet dripping with butter? Do you bring the goodness of God with you wherever you go? It takes some work to be blessed, but the rewards are worth the effort. Not only for you, but also the people you’re called to serve.
