YOU HAVE NOT
PASSED THIS WAY BEFORE
What is the circumstance that is standing between you and your Promised Land?
What is keeping you from attaining the Holy Spirit goals you have been praying for?
What is the lie the enemy keeps telling you that has kept you from entering in?
TODAY IS YOUR DAY OF DELIVERANCE
After the children of Israel lodged for three days at the brink of the Jordan River, Joshua sent officers through the camp who commanded the people:
"When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. Yet there shall be a space between you and the ark, about 2,000 cubits (1,000 yards or 914 meters) by measure. Do not come near the ark, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before." [Joshua 3:1-4]
The Hebrew root word for "passed" used above is "abar" [ah-var] which means "to pass over, go through, pass beyond, or to make a transition [figuratively or literally]."
To arrive INSIDE your Promised Land, you will have to go through a TRANSITION! The Hebrew word "abar" also means "to pass from one side to the other side."
Interestingly enough, a derivative of the word "abar" is "Ibriy" which means "Hebrew" and is the ethnic description of Abraham and his seed line, who was a descendant of Eber, the great grandson of Noah's son Shem.
Genesis 14:13 talks about "Abram the Hebrew." Exodus 7:16 mentions "the LORD God of the Hebrews." Here "Hebrews" represents a tribe of Semites (sons of Shem).
Abraham "crossed over" the Euphrates River from Haran to Canaan, the land God promised him. How did he do it? . . . through OBEDIENCE! Abraham, his wife Sarah, and his nephew Lot had originally left Ur of the Chaldees with his father, Terah, and arrived in Haran. It's possible the LORD had wanted Terah to take the trip of faith from Haran and he may not have obeyed; possibly that is why God chose Abraham.
If you don't do it, God will find someone who will! Are you willing to make the transition from your comfort zone to a blessed place where millions of other people will be blessed by your life and ministry?
The people of Israel were commanded to stay a great distance from the Ark as it would show them the way (verses 3 and 4). You are NOT to jump ahead of the LORD but to honor His holiness, just as the people honored the sacredness of the Ark. Let God lead you . . . and then follow Him in faith. He understands when you're not sure; but He also understands when you don't obey.
If your plans fit into God's plans . . .
You will have God's faith . . .
And God's faith always works!
Then you can pass over and make the transition to the Promised Land: the completion of the Holy Spirit goals you have prayed for so long!
