We are at the most critical time in our lives. It is the moment when we are all crossing the Jordan River into the Promised Land. But God’s instructions at this point are incredibly important: “And they commanded the people, saying, ‘When ye see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it. Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore.'”
The key and final phrase in this statement means “you have not passed this way before.” God is blessing you in ways that you never thought possible. But in this process, He wants you to do nothing with the blessing but wait ~ to put “a space of time” between you and what you are supposed to do with your blessing. I have seen so many Christians get anxious when they receive a blessing, put it in pockets that have holes in them, and end up with nothing to show for their wonderful blessing!
God’s blessing shall last for the next 40 years. It will be an inheritance to your children and your children’s children, and will continue to bless you and your offspring for generations to come. Don’t forget the key phrase: “Come not near it.” Put a space of time and distance between you and the blessing. Wait for the word of God to tell you what to do with the wealth that God is giving you.
The time of daily manna is over. For 40 years, God’s people lived with the instruction that they could only gather enough food for each day. If they stored extra food, it turned into worms. But suddenly everything changed. When they entered the Promised Land, they not only had to make food for that day, but they learned to store their seed for the next year’s harvest, and to make investments properly so they could continue to prosper in the land.
In other words, God is now teaching you and I how to remain in possession of the land and the greatness of the inheritance He has promised us. That’s why it is important that we listen daily to the voice of God, and put a space between us and His words, so that we confirm and make sure of the accuracy of our hearing ear. We must only listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd ~ and never to the cries of the wolves that are constantly around us, ready to eat our inheritance.
Believe me, God is literally giving you Heaven on earth! Obey His simple instructions every day. Do not pay attention to other voices that confuse and distract you through their complicated explanations. The Word says, “Though a fool be a wayfaring man, he shall never err in obeying God’s word.” For His word is always “Yes” and “Amen” in what He counsels you to do.
Remember, tell no one about your wealth, and don’t let your right hand know what your left hand is doing. Just enjoy as God brings you Heaven on earth! After all, that is how the Lord told us to pray, “Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.”
