For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
— Ephesians 2:10
God wants to lead you into your promised land…after all, you have been recreated in Christ, born anew, that you might live the good life that He prearranged for you. But to follow God into that life, He will have to prepare you first, and that means some things will need to change.
Now, don’t be afraid of the word change; it just means that you stop doing some things you’ve been doing and start doing some things you haven’t been doing. For example, stop thinking negative thoughts and start thinking positively…stop settling in your comfort zone and step out of the boat…stop procrastinating and start taking the opportunities that arise.
It’s not enough to just read about and talk about the Promised Land. Decide that you are going to possess your promised land. God is good; He will lead you there. Just be willing to follow and accept the positive changes that God wants to bring to your life as He prepares you to be a blessing to others.
