Dear Child of God,
You were on my mind today as I was praying. 2 scriptures in particular really stood out to me and I want to be able to share them with you. I believe that as you read this the Spirit of God is going to cause something to stir within you, enlightening your spiritual eyes, motivating you to take action!
Ex 3:8 says that And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
Many of you might know this scripture, but I have a question? Why does God list the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites…? Who are they anyway? You see this is the biggest problem that we have today in the Body of Christ, is that Christians are too ignorant for their own good. Child of God, we need to be able to realize that as a Christian, you cannot just sit back and expect everything to just fall into place. That you don’t have to do anything and yet God will bless you with a new job, with a new car, with a financial breakthrough. Most people only want to pray and do nothing else. They don’t want to invest in themselves, they don’t want to find out what are the steps necessary to take, they just end up giving God a bad look because they appear to have faith, yet they lack action to produce results or they make decision based on their circumstances from the past. Is that you ?
Why did God tell the Children of Israel about these people, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites? These were the enemies of the Israelites. And what God was saying to the children of Israel was “I am taking you to a new land, but get ready to fight to possess what is yours!”
It’s time to wake up! It’s been too long that the people of darkness have been exercising their spiritual authorities, taking things from the children of God; jobs, money, houses, children, spouses. It’s supposed to be the other way around..Yes God has given you all your blessings, But you must Go up and Possess them! Your inheritance requires you to do something, you are going to have to take a physical action! Yes He has promised you that good career, that good house, that good car, but God is expecting you to go and possess it. Pursue that good-paying job, pursue that good husband or wife, pursue that promotion at work, pursue that business idea, GO AFTER IT! Go and take over the land!
You can not just sit at home and pray and expect God to work a miracle, it just doesn’t work like that. If that was so, then God would have never made the children of Israel to fight all their enemies. He could have struck them down and let the Israelites move in, but He doesn’t do that. He wants you to possess.
And the Lord gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein. And the Lord gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the Lord delivered all their enemies into their hand. There failed not ought of any good thing which the Lord had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.
There are 3 types of enemies that you can face in life:
1) Enemies that are born on purpose and intentionally to hinder you
2) Enemies that have been assigned to target you, they will come after you even without you inviting them, Just like you they have territory to conquer, increase in in their mind, and they want what you got even though may be little
3) Enemies that become your enemies because you chose to go after their territories, you want a piece of what they have, they were at peace until God increased your desired. they are willing to fight you not just because they want anything that you got, but they are trying to save their skin, they are trying to keep the position that you want to take from them, they are trying to keep the space that you want to take it from them.
Sometimes you hear people say that once they started that job, all hell broke loose. No one hates your promotion more than the devil! But you’re going to have to be willing to stand and fight for what is yours. Get rid of that “Well if you want it, you can have it” attitude. That is a loser’s mentality. Listen, the loser is whoever quits first. So stop being a quitter. Hold on to what you have, and Go after what God has put in your heart! You need to understand that you are going to have enemies. They are just proof that satan is jealous of what God is doing in your life.
and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the Lord delivered all their enemies into their hand. There failed not ought of any good thing which the Lord had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.
So Child of God, I just want to be able to encourage you today, to Go up and Possess your land. Go an invade somebody else’s territory, go up and enlarge your coasts. Get out there and promote yourself, promote your skills, promote your business.
I know that as you get aggressive today like never before, that God is going to fight all your battles. Yes I see the angel of the Lord going before you and granting you favor. As you make up in your mind that you are going to Possess the Land, God will back you up! He is going to give you Favor and Breakthrough in every area! For always remember, the battle is not yours but the battle is the Lord’s.
Don’t be ignorant any more child of God. Receieve the revelation that can make all your dreams come true! God is not a man that he should lie, only it is up to us Christians to learn the proper formula so that we can get the results. I encourage you to today to take a necessary step of Faith that can help you to solve all your problems! Be blessed in the name of Jesus. Amen. – Bishop Climate Wiseman
