I’m not even sure how long it’s been since I’ve written but to be fair I also don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve visited my Mom…
Unfortunately, there are times in life where sacrifices have to be made to establish your home.
Right now all my time goes to work, school and my wife. Free time doesn’t exist and that’s how it’s going to have to be for a while…
It’s a good thing, it’s a noble thing, it’s a Godly thing.
One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about this time, however, is how faithful God has been to meet me as I seek Him.
It’s like He knows how valuable my time is right now and He responds by simply showing up the moment I turn to Him.
It also helps me to know that even though this season is difficult, God is right here with me, helping and supporting me through it.
I feel like the Israelites right after crossing the Jordan. They were in the promised land but no longer had the supernatural provision of manna… from that point on they would have to earn their food.
God had told us back in October, that from November until the end of April would be a season where we would begin to see the promises we’ve been waiting on fulfilled.
Part of that means conquering the giants in the land and no longer relying on God’s miraculous provision but relying instead on His support as we take action.
You cannot take the land without taking action.
You cannot have your promise without conquering the promised land.
Here are your options gentlemen:
- You can stay east of the Jordan river and live a mediocre life letting God take care of you but never seeing the fullness of what God has promised.
- Or, you gird up your loins like a man and go out there, kill some giants and take that promised land flowing with milk and honey.
Nobody said it would be easy; if it were everyone would do it. But it is what you are called to and God created you for this very reason.
If this season seems harder than most know that it’s because you have left the wilderness and it’s time to see if you have what it takes to take the promised land!
There is no turning back.
