Promised Land

Become a Conqueror

“It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.” – Romans 4:13 I have a great question for you today: Is it ever too late for God to turn someone into a conqueror? The answer is no! At any age, we can wake up and choose to embrace a new vision or calling from God. For instance, Abraham, the Hebrew patriarch, was 75 years old when he received the promise to be the father of many nations. He was 100 years old when that promise was birthed through his son Issac. I would love to find out how Abraham kept up his vigor, and what his routine of vitamins, healthy food, and exercise was!  In addition, Moses was 80 years old when he saw the burning bush, and God

Become a Giant Slayer

“The Lord your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy these nations before you, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua also will cross over ahead of you, as the Lord said.” – Deuteronomy 31:3 Yesterday we referenced the Promised Land, a special place for God’s chosen people who were freed from slavery, who had to walk across a vast desert to enter a land flowing with prosperity. When those enslaved people entered the Promised Land, there was one caveat I forgot to mention. It was full of giants. See, God will take you to the promised land, but you have to become a giant slayer on your way there.  We must understand that the beneficiality of the big goals God has for your life is not just what you achieve; it’s who you become. The promised land is set aside for giant slayers

A Promise in Your Heart

“And I have promised to bring you up out of your misery in Egypt into the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—a land flowing with milk and honey.” – Exodus 3:17 Over the next few days, I will share the value and importance of having concrete, long-term goals for your life and how this is a significant objective that God wants for us. It’s called the promised land, and it’s a major cure for what ails many of us today. If you want to get to the promised land in your life, you cannot fix your eyes on the desert, the weather, the scorpions, and the sand.  What is the promised land? In the Bible, the Promised Land was a special place God had for a special people who had been freed from slavery and who had to walk across a desert to enter a place

A Season of Eating Manna

“The Israelites ate manna forty years, until they came to a land that was settled; they ate manna until they reached the border of Canaan.” – Exodus 16:35 Many of you today are in a season of eating manna. Allow me to explain: In the Bible, God’s servant Moses leads the children of Israel out of Egyptian slavery, through the wilderness, and to the Promised Land. In this transition, God provides this bread from heaven called manna. It keeps the people alive but isn’t a great meal.  Maybe you’re in this place today, an in-between wilderness where you’re not in slavery anymore, but you’re not in the Promised Land either. You find yourself in-between point A and point B, and you’re wondering, God, I have this dream, this desire that I feel you’ve put in my heart, but I’ve been waiting so long. When will I get there? That in-between

Milk and Honey

“And I have promised to bring you up out of your misery in Egypt into the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—a land flowing with milk and honey.” – Exodus 3:17 What do you imagine when you hear the description, “A land flowing with milk and honey”? My guess is that you envision a large quantity of white liquid and an abundance of a sticky, sweet substance produced by bees. However, this is not what the phrase means in the Biblical context. The Lord promised His people, the Israelites, a land full of these things, but they are actually an analogy for wealth, not a reference to food. Milk symbolizes livestock such as sheep, cattle, and goats, and honey is a reference to farmland. Therefore, the Promised Land was a place rich with both animals and property, and in those days, that’s what influence was made
