Finding Your Promised Land - Lesson 4

Psalm 34:17-19 - The righteous cry, and the LORD hears And delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all.

      The Principles are Plain:

  • We cry out – The Lord heals.
  • The Lord is especially close to those with a broken heart.
  • We will be afflicted, but God will always deliver us.

How to Get What is Legally Yours to Become Your Experience

What you think in your mind, is what you will confess, and what you continually confess is what you will experience and what will become your reality.

When God’s word is decreed, whatever the proclamation states, it will come to pass. Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Confessing God’s truth is vital to personal healing. If you are saved through confessing and believing which will cause you to be born again, the same principle without a doubt applies to your healing.

Stop agreeing with the Devil. Is God’s word true? If His word is true, then come into agreement with God and live in disagreement with Satan and his world system.

Find key Scriptures that apply to your individual situation. The job is to read and read His word. Speak and speak His word. Think about His word. Sing about His word. Pray about His word.

All of this is to build your faith. God requires your faith. Your faith in God and His promises causes the promises to manifest in your life!

How to Know Your Purpose and Find Your Promised Land

You know you were born for a purpose. Your purpose is found within your promised land.

The Israelites purpose was to be God’s chosen people and to carry His message to the world by conquering and living in the Promised Land.

The same principle is true today. You have a purpose and you have a place for that purpose.

      Your Past Life Contains Clues to Your Purpose:

  • What do you do naturally well?
  • Even as a child this was easy for you to do.
  • When you did this particular thing or something similar you felt very alive.
  • There is a desire that seems to never go away.
  • You have had periods or certain times of excellence in this area.
  • Your friends see this in you.
  • When you did this you had a sense of peace.
  • When you did this other people benefited.
  • Your whole life it seems that everything has distracted you from doing this.
  • It was easy to do other things but when you tried to do this there was some type of block which would frustrate you (the Devil is always trying to stop a God given purpose).
  • This thing seemed bigger than you.
  • You felt discontent when you were not doing this thing.

Do not allow anything or anyone or any force stop you from fulfilling your God given design. If you press, through God will give you the victory.

Philippians 3:12 - Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
