“Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you.”
- Joshua 1:3-6
This is the year of MORE! :) I spoke about it in my last blog post, and I most likely will be screaming it from the mountain tops daily so that you never forget! I’m learning that we must have a certain type of mindset in order to truly succeed in receiving our “more.”
God told Moses to free the Israelite’s from their slavery in Egypt and bring them into the promise land that the Lord had prepared for them. Moses completed half of the task by delivering them out of slavery, but due to his disobedience, Joshua was chosen to lead the people into the promised land. The Lord gave him an order to arise and cross over the Jordan. He also gave him many promises and assured him of the victory (see scripture reference above). God basically assured Joshua that moving forward there would be no person or thing that would overtake him because He was never going to leave him, he promised him victory.
How many things has God promised and assured you of in your finances, career, ministry and even relationships? Has he assured you that there would be complete and total victory in your life, but it hasn’t manifested?
You may be at your Joshua stage preparing to cross over the Jordan into your MORE, however you have not crossed over yet. Hold on because it’s not over! You are at an amazing place, but it takes trust and understanding that God’s word is true! Remember, God gave Joshua the promise BEFORE he entered in. Joshua received it and obeyed and led other people with him into the land!
Today, lets believe and obey the promises that God has given us for our lives! Whether he gives us the promise before, during or entering in, it begins in our mind. The actions will follow as we obey Him!
