The Promised Land

Strongholds I’ve had, namely the fear of man and what they think of me, were broken today!

God took this day to put whole bunch of them in a row:

  • The fear of those more educated than myself…I am free!
  • The fear of Facing the Dragon, the judge…I am free!
  • The fear of inadequacy: not speaking well, getting nervous and tongue-tied…I am free!
  • The fear of making small-talk: not being able to start a conversation…I am free!
  • The fear of driving to areas I’m not familiar with: getting lost, even with a gps, and getting there on-time…I am free!
  • The fear of authority figures…I am free!

Today was the day I had to:

  • stand before the judge.
  • tell him that my husband deserted me.
  • not feel rejected.
  • not feel ashamed.

Today was the day that I chose to:

  • take only God with me.
  • stand up with God behind me.
  • do this only with the help of God.
  • stand up for myself.
  • not allow ‘man’ to intimidate me.
  • fully trust in God.

Yes, God wanted to show me that I am strong with Him and in Him. He is for me and not against me.

Today was my court day toward freedom and a renewed future!

God gave a way out when I:

  • stopped complaining.
  • accepted the reality of my situation.
  • said yes, Lord, I surrender.
  • said yes, Lord, I will love and be obedient because that is what Your word says to me.

Thereafter God gave me a second chance, God gave me a way out!

God said:

  • You are ready because I am with you.
  • Follow Me and I will give you strength.
  • I will be behind you.
  • Trust in Me when you release your strongholds.
  • Man is weak; I am your Savior.
  • Without Me, nothing is possible.

Today is a renewed future. Praise to God for His mercies and deliverance to the Promised Land!
