This morning the Lord just put these three words in my heart, “MARK YOUR TERRITORY.”
Before one starts to build, they sit down and count the cost. Before one sets out on a journey, they gather information about their destination. In both cases, it is needful…if not necessary to get all the information at your disposal in order to start and finish well. But something happens…when THE PROMISE-GIVER comes and tells you to GET READY to cross over to the other side. And this morning the Lord came to tell me to get ready. It is time for me and my family to cross the Jordan. These words came alive today.
Joshua 1:3-5 I will give you EVERY PLACE WHERE YOU SET YOUR FEET, as I promised Moses. YOUR TERRITORY will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates – all the Hittites country – to the Great Sea. No-one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU.
I don’t know about you…but I am getting READY TO MARK MY TERRITORY…and that is, FOR LIFE!!!!
