You're About to Cross Over, But It's Time to Settle!

Every commandment which I command you today you must be careful to observe, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers. And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.

Deuteronomy 8:1-2

You are about to cross over! I feel it so strongly! You are about to enter into some promises that you have been waiting on for a long time. Like the children of Israel, you are right on the edge of breakthrough.

But, like Moses, I feel compelled to give you a pep talk before you enter. I am compelled to tell you that before you crossover you need to settle. I know that sounds totally opposite of entering in, but I assure you that it isn't. It's not a physical place that I am asking you to settle into. I am asking you to settle some things in your mind and heart. See, the Promised Land is a great place; a wonderful place, but the Promised Land is not problem free. Even in the place that God designed just for you will be battles to be fought and obstacles to overcome.

So, I need you to settle.

Settle in your mind that God is God. Settle that you will follow Him no matter how dark the path looks.

Settle that you will obey His commands and instructions.

Settle that He has never left you before, and He will never leave you.

Settle that what is coming is greater than what has ever been.

Settle that your marriage will align with His plan; that you will be the wife that He has called you to be.

Get real settled in His word concerning you. Get really settled in His promise.

Spend these next 21 days soaking in who He is and what He has said about you. The battles don't end because you obtain the promise, but if you settle yourself you will be well able to handle any challenge that comes your way.
