Don't give up on your miracle! By looking unto Jesus, you can march steadily toward your own promised land and overcome any circumstance that tries to oppose you or distract you from your goal.

"...Be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest" (Josh. 1:7).

With the promised land before them, the children of Israel didn't have time to be wishy-washy followers of God, believing God one minute and complaining against Him the next. Their fathers before them did that and died in the wilderness without obtaining the promise. They were not victims of the circumstances that opposed them; they were victims of their own unbelief.

Years later under the leadership of Joshua, the same opportunity for possessing the promised land awaited a new generation of God's people. God commanded the Israelites to believe His Word and to obey it "not turning to the right hand or the left." Obedience to God's Word would ensure their victory. And as this second generation of Israelites trusted and obeyed God, they entered the Promised Land and obtained their long-awaited inheritance.

You and I have an inheritance that was purchased by Jesus Christ's own blood in His substitutionary work on the Cross. But whether it be the baptism in the Holy Spirit, healing, financial prosperity, deliverance from a bad habit, or any blessing that belongs to us in Christ, obedience to God's Word is the key to possessing our inheritance and winning the victory.

Hebrews 12:2 says, "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

Do not follow the example of the first-generation Israelites, who through unbelief were prevented from entering their promised land (Heb. 4:6,11). Instead, follow the example of Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith, and fix your gaze on the joy set before you—the promise of your inheritance in Christ.

Don't give up on your miracle! By looking unto Jesus, you can march steadily toward your own promised land and overcome any circumstance that tries to oppose you or distract you from your goal. If you will believe and hold fast to God's promises, you will receive your miracle from God.
