Exodus 23:28-30 NLT
I will send terror ahead of you to drive out the Hivites, Canaanites, and Hittites. But I will not drive them out in a single year, because the land would become desolate and the wild animals would multiply and threaten you. I will drive them out a little at a time until your population has increased enough to take possession of the land.
- The pace at which God’s promises are fulfilled in your life is dependent on your readiness to handle the fulfillment of the promise.
I will drive them out a little at a time until your population has increased enough to take possession of the land.
- If you are not ready to take possession of the promise’s fulfillment, God allows others to tend it for you. If left empty, it could become destroyed or obsolete or overran with situations that will multiply and threaten your future possession.
But I will not drive them out in a single year, because the land would become desolate and the wild animals would multiply and threaten you.
God’s promises are sure but Rome was not built in a day. You will not be ready in a day. The reason God doesn’t immediately clear the entire path to the Promised Land for you is because you are not ready to take possession of it. Instead, God allows others to tend what is intended for you so that it is protected and doesn’t get destroyed, become obsolete or overran with creatures or situations that will threaten your future possession. In the interim, God prepares you. He increases your numbers. He increases the skills you are lacking. Then year by year, He covers you and clears the path ahead of you, that you have been readied for. Readied, you are expected to push forward as He has directed. Slowly but surely you are being prepared and directed towards your Promised Land.
I am a dynamic young lady who loves the Lord and seek to have a joy that no one can take away. My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible. As a proud Wolmerian, with a zest for life, I adhere to the “Age Quod Agis” motto in that whatsoever I do, I always do it to the best of my ability.
