“See, the Lord your God has given you the land. Go up and take possession of it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, told you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Deuteronomy 1:21 NIV
Before them was the Promised Land. A land for them to conquer, settle in and prosper in but they were afraid.
They saw the giants and established city walls and were discouraged.
They only saw the insurmountable obstacles in front of them instead of seeing the unlimited power of their God to overcome those obstacles.
It is easy to see why: the promised land holds fierce battles, starting over and learning new skills, like how to grow your own food. No more mana in the promised land.
In the life of a Christian, the promised land is living fully in Christ. Taking hold of His promises and living in His power. It means following, obeying and trusting Him in all circumstances.
It also means that there will be fierce battles with your flesh. Some would rather go back to slavery and assured of being fed than starting over again and learning new skills.
It is time for you to go forward, start over and learn new skills.
It is time to leave the mountain you have been stuck on and move on to the life in Christ that has been provided to you by the cross.
How do you get unstuck?
Stop listening to your fears and start obeying your God.
Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged.
