Human beings are masters of excuses. We can all come up with justifiable reasons why we are unable to do something. The list can be endless and many times senseless. Excuses are our way of saying no without looking bad. We all find things to hide behind as we settle into the paralysis of analysis. We refuse to get going while presenting a plausible explanation to those that care. Many have also presented ridiculous excuses that even the youngest of children can single out as unacceptable.
Possessing the land in 2020 is going to take a refusal to justify your situation with excuses. You must sweep the senseless and sensible explanations away as you simply get the job done. We can all outline the many reasons why we can’t get things done until the cows come home. There comes a time when you must stop hiding behind clearly crafted concoctions as you reach out by faith to get the job done. Yes you can do all things through Christ that strengthens you therefore stop justifying why you are limited and possess the promises of God.
SCRIPTURE READING: Numbers 13:25-33 And they returned from spying out the land after forty days. Now they departed and came back to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the Wilderness of Paran, at Kadesh; they brought back word to them and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land. Then they told him, and said: “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities [are] fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there. The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.” Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.” But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature. There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”
DEVOTION PRAYER: I believe that this is my year! Am persuaded to achieve all that has been availed unto me this season. No more fear and excuses pertaining the possession in Jesus name.
