Today’s blog is the result of a post I made in an accountability group I am involved in on Facebook. I believe that it is good for you to read as well since I have a suspicion that if you are reading my blog today that you may be on your own journey to health and wellness. So the following is for you too!
“For the land that you are entering to take possession of it is not like the land of Egypt, from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and irrigated it, like a garden of vegetables. But the land that you are going over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water by the rain from heaven, a land that the Lord your God cares for. The eyes of the Lord your God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.” Deuteronomy 11:10-12 ESV
I believe we can pull application from these verses for our journey to healthy living. Some of us are literally entering new territory, our journey is beginning and we have come from places of bondage and defeat. “But the land that you are going over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water by the rain from heaven, a land that the Lord your God cares for.” Can you see what that looks like for you today?
There is a land of hills and valleys ahead which means that we will have our ups and downs, we will have our days of victory and our days of weakness but what does it say? The Lord your God cares! Oh hallelujah! Can you sense the joy in the journey?
The next verse says “The eyes of the Lord your God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.” Oh sisters our God is watching over our journey. He is watching over the land we are entering into not just today but from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.
We are set up for success! We just have to allow the Lord to guide our footsteps and keep our eyes fixed and focused on Jesus! We cannot look back to our own personal Egypt because there’s no room for us there anymore. When things get hard while moving forward push through! Push through! Why? Because we are not to go back to the land of defeat and bondage. Amen?
