Go and Possess Your Land!
“Let us go up at once and take possession of it..” Numbers 13:30
In the same fashion that God lead and directed His people in times pass; so is He doing today. Sometimes it appears that we have forgotten that the ultimate battle has already been won and the victory is already ours! Many appear to have developed the mind set of the victim in this war instead of the victor. Far too much time is spent focusing on “the what” we are observing in this physical realm – than standing in faith and proclaiming the promises of God.
REMEMBER: It doesn’t matter what the intensity or the volume of my voice may be – if my words are not spoken in faith and in alignment with the Word of God – I’m just wasting my time! It doesn’t matter how many times I decree something; if my mind has not been renewed to the extent that it is in total agreement with the manifestation of my decrees. I must also remember that I can only place a decree over the territory where I have been given legal dominion and authority in the realm of the Spirit! (A discussion for another time.)
Possessing my land requires:
An ear to hear the voice of God,
The discipline to move out in the timing of God,
An unshakable, steadfast confidence in the Word of God and
A discerning spirit that detects every diabolical move from the kingdom of darkness.
So it’s time to learn how to obtain “sweat less” victories! (Note: The Levitical priest were instructed to were linen as opposed to wool as to not sweat in the presence of the Lord. Research Ezekiel 44:17,18.) We, in our power, can’t make our adversary do anything. He fears not our words – nor our hype! However, he MUST, MUST become subjected to the Word of God when it is spoken.
Don’t permit any type of fear to cancel your faith! Speak the Word of God, and don’t permit ANY negative words to override or cancel what you have spoken!
Lastly, learn how to extend your prayers above the battle ground and into to the courtroom! When we learn how to spend more time in the presence of the Lord in worship – we will have the advantage of descending in power. We will have the privilege of walking as Christ did; telling the enemy, “It is written”. Don’t permit him (the enemy) to have the upper hand any longer. God has commanded and Jesus has defeated every opposing force. Soooo why the delay? The time is now! The person is you. Move forward, keep your focus and go possess our land!
