There is a promise and a process. Every promise is achieved through a process. God has promised that this year we are taking new territories. The Question is what are you doing now to ensure that the promise comes to pass in your life.
Our struggle is that we know that we know God has promised, but Why is the promise not coming to pass? This is because people lack the presence of God. Most people in churches are looking for miracles but it is only in the Word of God and His presence that you will find Rest. Rest is not the absence of problems but the presence of God in your problems. As long as God is with you in that problem, it doesn’t matter how long it takes, the problem will eventually expire with a mighty breakthrough.
God does not delay as we think, all He wants is for us follow the process. God gives you the promise along with the process. The promise is ‘The land flowing with milk and honey’ and the process which is the wilderness. In essence, you may be destined to be great and not look like it now, but the process of becoming great will change you.
The process to the promise land is not sweet but in the end you will make it. Salvation is now sweet on us, but it was brought by a painful process of the death of Jesus Christ. Stay in the presence of God, keep on pushing, one day you will stand in your promise land.
