The Price of Promotion

This is going to be short but, sweet. I am going through this right now. So, I know I can't be the only one. My prayer is that you will be blessed and encouraged to stay the course and not give up.

When the Israelites were getting ready to cross into the Promise Land, they had to decide that God was on their side and believe that the Land was for them to possess and inhabit. Then they had to take a step of faith into the rushing waters of the Jordan River to cross over into the Land. Then they had to defeat the giants that were presently there to possess it.

Promise Land is destiny; purpose; calling. I don't know what your Promise Land is but, I believe there are many who are close to entering it. However, there is a river you may have to cross and giants to defeat. The river is your step of faith. What do you need to give up to receive what the Lord has for you? Many want diamonds but, are not willing to give up the Cracker Jack Box necklace in their hands. You want the Jaguar but. are clinging to the Pontiac for dear life. Forget about Eygpt. God has something more; something better.

Defeating the giants? That's the price. Whenever you are about to receive blessing or promise from the Lord the enemy will post giants to keep you from receiving it. You may be getting ready for promotion and now all of a sudden you're surrounded by hate and cruelty. Co-workers are smiling in your face and stabbing you in the back. You may be getting ready to receive that new home and now you have whispers of fear spoken in your ear. You may be getting ready for praise and honor. But, look out! Here come slander and character assassination. Stay focused in the Word and continue to do well. Keep your flesh subdued and do not, do not retaliate. God's plan for you will not be thwarted as long as you keep walking into it.

Remember, if God be for you, who can stand against you? Don't give up! Don't give up!! Kick the devil out and receive your inheritance. The Bible teaches that the Lord knows the hairs on our head. He is very particular about the details in our life. When we walk into the destiny or purpose He has, we cannot fail. So, when the Lord says, "This is for you," you can know, IT... IS.... YOURS!!!
