Now is not the time to just sit around and wait for your promised land to come to you. It’s time to get up and forcefully move into your promised land.
It may seem like the process of getting to your dreams is taking too long, but the process is actually more about you becoming the person you will need to be, so you can stay and thrive in the promised land once you get there.
Before you enter, you need to pack. You need to take some steps to get prepared.
So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’ Joshua 1:10-11
This is the time to form new habits. What new habits do you need in order to be able to rock it when you get into your promised land? Maybe you need some:
- new habits of health
- new habits in relationships
- new habits in your connection with God
Some of the things I’ve been doing to get ready for my next season are:
- organizing my email and digital files so I have a clear place to work from
- getting healthy so I have the physical and mental stamina for the journey
- making sure I am keeping strong heart connections with my husband and kids
Do the work today, build your spiritual, relational, and physical strength now, so that you will be able to fulfill all of the things God has for you in the future.
Now is not the time to sit back and be passive. It’s time to take one step at a time in the direction of your promised land!
