“And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.”
Deuteronomy 34:8 (KJV)
Yesterday, I made it clear that a failure is not one who failed, but the one, who refuses to get up. Today, I want to challenge you, what is it that is keeping you down, it is time for you to arise. It is time for you to get up, dust yourself and walk away from it. In the scripture above, Moses, the deliverer, who brought the children of Israel out of Egypt was dead and to all of them, that was the only deliverer they knew. So naturally, they pitched their tent and wept sore. They wept so bad that for thirty days, they wept but God had to come to them in Joshua 1:2 and said to Joshua, you have wept enough, “Moses, My servant”, not your servant, is dead; NOW ARISE! In other words, you do not love Moses more than Me, since he is dead, you have only one assignment and that is to arise.
What has represented Moses in your life that you have leant so heavily on? Is it your job, your business, a loved one? No matter what it is, I have come with a word from God to you today, ARISE! Arise and get ready to move because greater things are in store for you. Your best days are not behind you, your best days are ahead. The Promised Land which Moses could not enter, the children of Israel entered. In the same way, I prophesy over your life that in 2018, you will enter your Promised Land. That thing that looks so elusive to you will come to pass.
Dearly beloved, as this year runs to a close, in a few days from now, we will be bidding 2017 goodbye and welcoming 2018, don’t mourn into 2018, there is a glory ahead of you. There is goodness ahead of you. 2018 will answer for you in Jesus’ name. Blow your nose and dry your eyes, you are entering into a new season of your life and nothing can stop it in Jesus’ name.
