Then Moses summoned Joshua. He said to him with all Israel watching, “Be strong. Take courage. You will enter the land with this people, this land that God promised their ancestors that he’d give them. You will make them the proud possessors of it. God is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t worry.” Deuteronomy 31:7-8 Message
I just felt like someone needed to hear this today. Just as Moses said to Joshua, God is saying to you, be strong and courageous, stand your ground, don’t allow what you see with your natural eyes to influence the truth you know in your spirit. Whatever God has promised you, He is faithful to deliver on that promise.
He said, “I am the Lord your healer!” That’s His word and you can trust in what He said. It doesn’t mean the thief won’t try to steal it, but if you stand, don’t be weary and quit, hold on for dear life, you will see the manifestation of that promise.
He said, “I am Your Provider!” That’s His word and you can trust in what He said. It may look bad right now, your account may look empty, your cupboards may look empty, but the same God who takes care of the birds will take care of you. Get up, get dressed, spend time in the presence of the Lord and listen to what He directs you to do. As you go, He will show you what to do and where to go.
He said, “Go possess the land!” That’s His word and you can trust in what He said. Make the offer, trust God to provide what you need. Begin packing up your house. Prepare yourself for the move. God loves to see your faith and trust in Him. He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you ask or think according to the power that works in you. What power works in you? The power of the Holy Spirit.
Thank you Holy Spirit that You are in me, working on my behalf, bringing about the will of God concerning me. May I make the necessary steps to possess the promises given to me. I trust in You and know that You will cause me to enter in. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
