PIONEER AGAIN

PIONEER AGAIN

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

I was having a coffee with a ministry friend of mine recently who had made some major decisions regarding the future of his ministry.
He said – with some degree of excitement – it feels as though I am pioneering again.

Herein lies one of the great principles of life.

WHEREVER YOU GO..
Life is a journey of possession UNTO…
We never stop pressing TOWARD…
We remain steadfast UNTIL…

POSSESSION
Once you get into the land of promise – which for us is life in Christ – God promises to bless – wherever you go.
Position – in Christ
Possession – by faith

PIONEERING PRESENTS PROBLEMS

PERPLEXITY
WE HAVE NOT BEEN THIS WAY BEFORE
The complexity of perplexity stuns many into staying put in their present lot.
Abraham went out, not knowing.

PATHOS
WE ARE NOT ABLE
The pathetic cry of so many is from the weakness of their humanity – instead of the greatness of God’s divinity.

PERCEPTION
WE ARE SMALL IN COMPARISON
The moment you compare your present state with your future enemies – you are in trouble. New levels always present new devils.
We are made strong in the fight.

PRESERVATION
WE SHOULD MAINTAIN WHAT WE NOW HAVE
How many of us have settled for the halfway point in our journey.
A little success can be worse than none.

PRIDE
WE MIGHT FAIL IN THE EYES OF OTHERS
The risk of failure is always high.
However it is how we live in God’s eyes that really matters. And God is pleased with faith.

EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS ABOUT POSSESSION
What are the present challenges God is leading you into – that require you to possess His power and His provision – at a new level.
If you see His hand at work – it will cause your feet to walk.
If you hear and believe His word – it will cause your mouth to talk.

RISE UP – THERE IS YET MORE LAND FOR YOU TO POSSESS
