”Get ready…to take possession…” [Joshua 1:11]

Getting ready and taking possession requires a time of preparation—of the heart!  Billy Graham said, “The deepest problems of the human race are spiritual.  They are rooted in man’s refusal to seek God’s way for his life.  The problem is the human heart, which God alone can change.”

The slower you go the more you’ll know and the way forward becomes more streamlined. When a new season is unfolding— Take more time to stay in the Word–” Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth…”   In order to come out of your mouth the Word must first flow through your heart to effect whatever change is necessary.  It will then have life and power and cause a change in the inner man that will fit you for the days ahead.   Take time to chew-on the Word—”…meditate on it day and night…”  it takes time to digest what is written—we move away too quickly when God would have us sit and listen and allow new light to come to our understanding.

Understanding takes more time than we can imagine we are quick to act but revelation can take days, weeks, months and even years.  Each Word unfolds a little at a time but as it grows it will carry with it the gift of faith and assurance so that what you ‘do’ will produce what God has promised.  God is not in a hurry—He may take longer than you think but He’ll change your thinking and make you successful if you just slow down, ”…so that you may be careful to do everything written in it.  Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
