Is It Time to Move On?

  Jesus overcame the world for us. He walked victoriously in this life to show us the way. He’s already given us the land of power, self-control, and a sound mind. But we hold back, refusing to fight for what God wants us to have.

    Here, he spoke to the Israelites. “You stayed here long enough. Go
    and possess your victory."


     It was forty years ago, at Mount Horeb, that Jehovah our God told us, "you have stayed here long enough. Now go and occupy the country of the Amorites, the valley of the Arabah, and the Negeb, and all the land of Canaan and Lebanon--the entire area from the shores of the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates River.

 I am giving all of it to you! Go in and possess it, for it is the land the Lord promised to your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and all their descendants.

    Have you dwelt long enough on the same mountain? Have you taken
  forty years trying to make an eleven-day trip?
              Battlefield of the Mind  by Joyce Meyer
   In my own life, I finally had to wake up and realize that I was going nowhere. I was a Christian without victory. Many wrong mindsets and strongholds enslaved me. The devil had lied to me, and I had believed him. I was living in deception.
   New Year's resolutions may not work, but setting well-thought-out,
  written, and prayed-over goals do.

    When I submitted my eating disorder to God, He healed me  
  emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I'm in awe of what He made
  of my life since then.  I would have never had the nerve to step out
  and write God's message of hope much less give workshops or teach
  without moving on at God's command.
   What could you accomplish for God if you moved out of the mountain and continued the journey God asked you to make?
    Is it time to move out of the mountain?
    Is it time to change your direction?
    Is it time to move on?
