GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO WALK IN YOUR DESTINY: For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. (Jeremiah 29:11-12)
TIME TO RISE UP AND WALK
God has a plan for each of us. But most of us will never live fully in the manifestation of that plan. We will live below par in the things of God. In golf, below par is a good thing. In the Kingdom of His love for us, it is not.
There as many reasons that we do not walk out God’s plan for our lives as there are people. I believe one of the biggest reasons is fear. We fear many things and then fail to truly trust the word of the living God! Fear will keep us where we are and trust will project into the present and future that God has for us!
Much of today’s perverted teaching tells us that Jesus did it all and that by grace we don’t have to do anything! This belief system will keep you in bondage!
God has given us things in His kingdom through the extension of the grace provided by the cross. No doubt about that! But we must possess those things which God has provided for us! I said we must POSSESS those things that God has provided for us through the life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension of His Son-OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR!
I want you to look at a story in Numbers which paints a similar picture of many believers today! It is the story of Joshua and Caleb and the ten other spies. God had called men from each of the tribes to go scout out the land. First Numbers 13:2-
“Send men to explore and scout out [for yourselves] the land of Canaan, which I give to the Israelites. From each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader or head among them.”
Then Numbers 13:30-
“Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once and possess it; we are well able to conquer it.”
The 12 went and spied the land and ten came back with a bad report. Jacob and Caleb came back with a different report-a report that lined up with God’s word!
This is what I want you to see. First, God stated that he had given the land to the people! That should have settled the matter. After their return and hearing the bad report of the ten and listening to complaining of the people, Caleb made a tremendous statement of faith and trust in the word of His God! He said, “Let us go possess it.”
He knew that God had said that He had already given the land to His people. He also knew that they had to go POSSESS the land! He also knew that they were well able to possess that which God had already provided for them.
The ten spies died shortly after their report. Joshua and Caleb went and possessed the land.
GOD HAS PROVIDED THINGS FOR US. IT IS UP TO US TO POSSESS THEM. HOW?
FAITH AND TRUST IN WHAT GOD HAS SAID TO US! FAITH THINKS, FAITH SPEAKS AND FAITH ACTS!!! FAITH WILL BANISH THE FEAR AND DEFEAT WHICH SO EASILY COMES UPON US. FAITH COMES BY FEEDING ON THE WORD OF GOD AND THEN POSSESSION COMES BY LIVING A LIFE OF FAITH!
LET US PURPOSE ON OUR HEARTS TODAY TO POSSESS EVERYTHING THAT GOD HAS ALREADY GIVEN US!
WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN
God’s Promise for You Today: YOUR DAYS WILL BE MULTIPLIED: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and the years of life will be added to you.” (Proverbs 9:10-11)
