How do we continue into the prosperity that the previous generation tapped into? Many times, prosperity passes over a generation because people become complacent and don’t follow the model that God has put in place for them to become prosperous. I can personally relate to this. I have had every opportunity to step into what God has called me to, but I was scared of what it would require, and that has caused me to run. I am telling you that today is the day to stop running from what God is calling you into and continue into the promise that He has in store for you!
Joshua 1:7-8 says, “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
When the Israelites were meant to go into the Promised Land, Joshua and Caleb were the only ones that were willing to step into the prosperity that God had planned for His people. The rest of the Israelites were whining and complaining about how God had treated them wrong (even though He had just delivered them from slavery). Yes, God made Joshua and Caleb wait to move into their prosperity, but they are wonderful examples of how God makes the next generation wait to become prosperous.
Read Joshua 1-5. Ask God to give you the patience to understand when it is time to take your next step. Ask Him to “encourage” you to meditate on His word day and night, and that it does not depart from you. Have faith that following His word and His will for your life will lead your way to be prosperous.
