Don’t despise small beginnings or small victories; instead, you should be rejoicing. These small victories, breakthroughs, and beginnings are a sign of greater things to come and greater triumphs. For indeed, I am opening up the way for you to get to your Promised Land. Perhaps it is not what you expected. Perhaps you thought the way would be easier, but My child; it is not just in gaining the Promised Land that matters, but the treasure is also in the journey of getting there. Just as the wilderness wrought and made the Israelites into warriors, so the wilderness will be to you.
The Israelites expected to enter the Promised Land moment they left Egypt. However, because of their failure to appreciate their deliverance blessing from bondage, I led them by the way of the wilderness to prepare them to receive the Promised Land. It was in the wilderness blessing they learned how to have faith in Me – where they saw my miracles and knew My power. In the wilderness is where I trained their hands for battle and their fingers for war. The blessing of the wilderness is where they were made into conquerors, and they learned to praise Me and praising Me is what I want you to do right now.
Your praise will be like a seed sown in good ground that will grow into heavenly blessings. As you constantly praise Me, your faith will grow and help you to recognize, appreciate the beauty of where you are. Praise Me in advance in every small step of progression; for each step brings you closer to your Promised Land. As you praise Me, you draw Me nearer to you, and together with praise and worship the power of My presence will disintegrate the hindering spirits which blocked the way for greater things.
Gratitude is a mighty weapon against discouragement and defeat. My words say, “Let all those rejoice who put their trust in Me. Let them shout for joy because I am defending them, let them that love My name be joyful in Me.” I know that you love Me, but will you trust Me? Do you trust Me enough to bring you through this wilderness? If you do, then let your heart be filled with joy. It’s My desire for you to trust Me and give thanks in My name for the small things I am doing. Yes, give thanks and don’t despise this victory, because I will always cause you to be victorious.
Now, My child, embrace this journey and let it make you become what you need to be. For when you reach the place I have chosen for you, you will know what to do with it. You will be a vessel that will be able to handle the responsibilities that come with it. Therefore, don’t despise the journey, I am taking you on, but see it for what it is, a small victory on the way to greater things to come. Because here is how you will get to the Promised Land, and indeed you will see it. So, be very, very grateful for every small victory, for they are the beginning of great things into your life.
