As I prepare to sell my house and move on with my life, I’ve been making plans. Plans for life, business, and ministry have all been on my mind, and the Lord had me thinking of the details necessary to achieve my mission.
As I pondered all of this, another thought crossed my mind: many of us want to prosper financially but have no real vision for what we’d do if we did.
Yes, God blessed Israel when He brought them into what preachers like to call the land of more than enough, but did you notice that what He blessed them with was production capacity? That’s right, they still had to put that land to work. They still had to decide what they were going to do with all that capacity.
Before God brought them there, He walked them through a long season of preparation for it, and when they got there, they had to fight for it. We are walking through a very difficult time.
- What are you doing with it to ensure you are surrendering to God’s process?
- What are you doing with what God has already given you?
- What are your plans for when He does give you what you’re asking for, and are those plans right in His sight?
The answers to those questions will reveal a great deal.
