Flowing with Milk and Honey
The Lord has promised many of us, lands flowing with milk and honey. Those lands He is referring to, may appeal to some naturally, and may even be intended as such however, I maintain that those lands He is referring to are also representative of spiritual places.
Jesus said that He went to prepare a place for us. Again, some interpret that to mean a natural place, but I have always maintained that those ‘places’ the Father has prepared for us are spiritual places, caves, nestings, refuges, places of healing and rehabilitation, delivery rooms, and etc. There are places in the realm of the Spirit where the Father meets us and reveals Himself to us.
Allow me to share from a spiritual point of view what the lands flowing with milk and honey entail. These are spiritual places, realms, and dimensions in the unseen where Holy Spirit gravitates us toward during certain phases of our lives. These places have certain substances. In this particular spiritual place called, Canaan, where the milk and honey is located, is a place of spiritual warfare but at the same time, a place of birthing for the new and sustenance for that which has already been.
Honey is nature’s perfect food. Many prophets lived off of honey; in fact it contains all the essentials vital to life. Honey is a sustainer of life. It will keep and preserve you. Manna, which literally means, “what is it?” tasted to the hungry Hebrews like wafers of honey. Honey kept them alive in the wilderness and for you who are prophetic, the mother prophetess and judge named Deborah, name means ‘honey’. Go figure.
The milk is vitally important as the honey because milk makes the body strong (yes, I know) but it also nourishes babies. Milk is the only food that babies can digest. If a place in the spirit has milk that means that birthings will take place. New things, ideas, relationships, and etc. will require this type of spiritual milk. Therefore, let us assume that the land ‘flowing with milk and honey’ has contained within, elements that nourish, sustain, strengthen, and preserve as you endeavor about possessing the thing you are being called to.
You need not ever be leery or reluctant about the spiritual places the Lord is calling us to. Importantly, keep in mind that not every time you receive a word about a ‘new thing’ or ‘new place’ that God is referring to something physical.
God is Spirit and more times than not, when the deep calls unto the deep, He is referring to something spiritual. Many have erred trying to apply a natural application to a spiritual thing. I can go on but I must stop here.
Prayerfully, I have given you enough to ponder on for yourself. Explore your promised land of milk and honey and allow the Lord to pleasantly surprise you with what He has in store for you. I know I am.
If you want to experience the hand of God…
Some of us are shifting from one anxious foot to another waiting on God to fulfill a word He has spoken concerning us, but we’ve missed a very important key in prophetic manifestation. Jesus said in John 15:7, “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” In other words, when the word of God is ‘living’ on the inside of you, there is nothing the Lord won’t do for you.
The reason why some of us aren’t seeing prophetic word demonstration is because there is no word habitation. The word of God has to dwell in you richly. It has to be heard AND applied. There must be a performance of the word of God in our lives on our behalves that attracts the presence of God.
God has no respect of persons. What He does for one He will do for another but it all must be done on His terms. We cannot force the hand of the Lord to move in our lives. He moves when the conditions are conducive, when our heart is pure, and when the ground of our lives can hold the seed as it brings forth fruit. The Lord, our God, is principled. He honors His above His own name and will not change His nature for any of us.
If you want to experience the hand of God moving in your life, your life must be a yielded one. There is no room for ‘part –timers’. Either you are in or out. One of my favorite scriptures says, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.”
When your heart is pure people of God, you WILL see God.
Keep your Hope and Trust in the Lord!
Some of you are going through some situations right now that look utterly hopeless. You have exhausted all of your resources much like the hemorrhaging woman in the Bible and you have gone as far as your own strength will carry you. I encourage you today to look up and live. If you are a child of God, there can nothing befall your life that God has not already prepared you for. Even when it appears that your strength is small and that you have nothing else to give, look up and live. Your redemption is drawing nigh and God is coming to see about you.
God allows certain circumstances to take place in our lives for a variety of reasons; each one is different from the other. For some, He may want to grow you, provoke you, draw you, or chastise you. For others, He may want to open your eyes to what is really taking place around you, who is really for you, and where your enemies are.
For every trial you endure, there is a reason which is why the scriptures say to endure it patiently. There are lessons to be learned, about you and others. There are places in the realm of the Spirit that God wants to show you.
There are hearts around you that God is revealing to you so go through your situation patiently.
Keep your hope and trust in the Lord and just like your elder brother, Daniel, in the lion’s den, as God delivered him, so will He deliver you. Wait on the Lord people of God. He has never failed you and He will never fail you.
