From tonight's bible study "One in a Million" by Priscilla Shirer
You can't do what you've always done and expect different results. If we want to move on to promised land living, we have to start doing things differently.
The Israelites wandered around the desert for 40 yrs but they were on the border of the promised land for 38 of those years. They were either too negative about going in, not believing God would deliver them even though they had the proof He would, or they were content living next to it and getting some of the benefits but not the abundance. They were complacent...life wasn't bad and it might be risky to enter, so they didn't pursue the abundance God had in store for them.
God, keep us from being complacent. Let us break the barriers once and for all. Let us pursue the promised land you have for us no matter what tries to stop us or discourage us, not matter what the risk, no matter what we have to change about ourselves or our lifestyles. We are the ones. We cannot wait for someone else to do it or to tell us about it...as Priscilla said "You are the one you have been waiting for"
