Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the Lord your God giveth you to possess it. (Joshua 1:11 KJV)
Are you ready for your breakthrough this year? The children of Israel had gone around the wilderness for forty years, it was a great message to finally hear that in three days time, they would cross the Jordan River. It was a season in which endless circles of lack of progress would be broken.
The land was right in front of them which they would now possess. They were going to bid farewell to the life of the wilderness. But for this to effectively happen, they needed to prepare! Every new level that you aspire for needs you to prepare for it. Without preparation, you will soon crawl back into the previous life. If you are not prepared, you will live the wilderness life in the Promised Land.
The rules of the Promised Land are different from those of the wilderness. It is a total mental shift that one must engage in to accrue the benefits of the new place. Many people get excited when there is an opportunity to cross over, be it into a new year, new job or new relationship. But owing to a lack of preparation, the excitement does not last long as they soon get back to their old habits and ways.
Prepare your heart for the next level. Good things come to those who are prepared. Success is not an accident! It is a realization of predetermined and preset goals. Joshua told the officers to command the people to prepare. A command has to be followed fully for it to benefit someone. Heed this command today.
I pray for you today that the grace of the Lord helps you to prepare for the great things ahead of you. May you get help from those competent to ensure that your next level will be a blessing to you.
I am crossing over into victory, progress and success. The Holy Spirit is imparting on me the grace to effectively prepare. I will not lack for progress in this season.
