Stepping Forward and Taking Ground

29 September 2023

Psalm 28:7
‘The LORD is my Strength and my Shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me.’

Stepping forward is a vital component to a fulfilled life. If you have ever been caught in a ‘no win situation’ you will discover how demoralizing it can be. We need to have vision and hope and be able to move towards it to be able to feel fulfilled. Stepping forward brings growth. Stepping forward brings progress. Stepping forward involves faith, because the future is unknown and unsure! One of the biggest stumbling blocks to stepping forward is baggage. Baggage is the things that we carry with us that hold us back or limit our progress. The next challenge is change itself. Change can be very threatening, but we can be secure, because the God who never changes is with us to see us through the changes as we step forward.
I believe that as we move on God wants us to take new ground. What this really means is that we can become stronger in those areas. Perhaps you have lost ground: In your marriage, in your finances, in your business or in your relationships. Perhaps you are not where you should be or you know things are worse than they were? It is time to begin to believe that God will not only allow you to reclaim lost ground but to even believe that He will give you more ground in the process.

Deuteronomy 11:24 Every place where you set your foot will be yours: Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the Euphrates River to the western sea.

It may even call for something radical as we take back what the enemy has stolen from us!I remember a song we used to sing: ‘I went to the enemies camp and I took back what he stole from me!’ Do not give the devil a foothold in your life. Begin to believe God that you and your family will take new ground!
