“The Lord our God said to us at Horeb,
“You have stayed long enough at this mountain.
Break camp and advance into the hill country of the Amorites...”
(Deuteronomy 1:6, 7a)
It was a breath of fresh air to hear both Mark and Justine Wimble who recently came to give us apostolic input. It is important to note that during this Covid time, over the past year, we all were almost in hibernation, and it took a prophetic word to tell us to wake up from our slumber.
We are told to break camp, just like the Israelites who got comfortable at the mountain of Horeb. There is so much more for us. God is speaking to us to advance and take new territory. God has great plans for us, we need to move with Him to go forward and take possession of what He has promised.
A little sleep, a little slumber a little folding of hands to rest; and poverty will come upon you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man (Proverbs 24:33). This lifestyle will keep us from our inheritance. We have been trusting the Lord for revival, and it would be catastrophic if we had to miss the day of His visitation, like the religious leaders of Jesus’ day. They missed the Lord of glory in their midst. In Psalm 95:6 it says, “will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you”.
We need to go forward and take possession of what He has kept for us. We are to make the most of the time, for the days are evil. If we want to use this time wisely, we need to pray and sow seeds of faith in these evil days. In prayer we buy into God’s power. Prayer opens up the doors to God’s unlimited possibilities.
We need to exhibit a spirit of entrepreneurship and find creative ways to bring the good news until He comes. Many are just interested in knowing what will happen in the last days, but our Lord Jesus has made it clear, “this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
“They went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through accompanying signs” (Mark 16:20). Let’s advance and step into the purposes of God. We will reap a multiplied harvest which He has for us.
