Don't Forfeit Your Blessing
We can stand to learn so much by studying the children of Israel's wilderness experience. A journey that should have taken days took 40 years. In this season we are much closer than we once were...closer than ever to the promises of God. God is getting ready to bless and equip his children for the end time harvest...If we are in position and in right standing (living holy) when this next move happens. The old me, the sinful nature has tried harder than ever to take back over, but I continue to fight. Most of the battle is taking place in my mind now, but I know that if you entertain thoughts to long that you find yourself carrying out the things out you have entertained so my goal is to think on good things and renew my mind with God's words when these thoughts come. Satan is trying so hard to get us off path to delay or abort what God is getting ready to birth in our lives; we must persevere in holiness. We must also choose our company wisely and listen for God's voice and instruction; obedience is key in this season.God told me the other day you are close don't forfeit it. Numbers Chapter 13 25 And they returned from searching of the land after forty days. 26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land. 27 And they told him, and said , We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it. 28 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled , and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. 29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. 30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said , Let us go up at once , and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. 31 But the men that went up with him said , We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. 32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying , The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. 33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
