The Wilderness

You won't be in it long...

the wilderness.

That depends on you though. It depends on how long it will take you to trust God. To trust in His every move, in His every way, in His every Word.

Will we trust Him or will we wander around in crazy town for 40 years? That's what the Israelites did (see Numbers 32:13). They were in the wilderness, the wasteland, the desert, far longer than God wanted them to be. They were blessed just as you and I are, but like them, how many times did we hold up our blessings? 

It's time to get out of the wilderness. It's crazy hot in the daytime and frigid cold at night. We don't have to be there longer than we should be. Don't get me wrong though, the wilderness is many times necessary to trust God, but to stay there longer than God has for us is not necessary. Why don't we go ahead and do what we have to do to make it to Canaan? We will still have to fight, but isn't it great to fight a fight you've already won? God told the Isrealites the promise land was theirs. All they had to do was obey Him, fight when He said to fight, and to not sleep with the enemy. Yet they wouldn't do those things and they messed up their blessings. 

We must be different this time.The blessings -- the promised land -- the flowing of milk and honey -- is ours for the getting if we will trust and believe God has it for us. Let's go. You ready? It's beyond time.

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Speak things as if they were

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. Do you know you have the power to speak things into existence? Do you know you have the power to change your atmosphere? Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In   Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours"  and   Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."  Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
