Deuteronomy 1:6 to 7 (NIV) ~ The LORD our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break camp and advance.”

You have gone round this mountain long enough, it is time to break out and advance! This verse of Scripture is repeated in Chapter 2, verse 2, “You have made your way around this hill country (mountain) long enough.” There comes a time in your life when it is time to break out of the mundane, mediocre life of simply going around the same mountain day after day, month after month and year after year, it is time to break out and advance forward. It is time to break out of your comfort zone and move forward. It is time to breakout and advance forward to progress into new areas, new adventures of faith and a new direction with everything that God has blessed you with. For someone, it may be time to re-dig some wells that the enemy has stopped up. For someone, it may be time to break out into new areas of evangelism. For someone, it may be having the courage to take a step of faith and break out and advance forward in missionary work.  

Perhaps the word of the LORD is speaking to your heart today from our text for today in Deuteronomy 1:6 to 7 (NIV), “The LORD our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break camp and advance.” When you move forward and break out, let it be so as the Lord directs. If the people of Israel never broke out, then they would have never experienced the many victories or even crossing over into the Promised Land. If you never break out and advance in God, you will never experience all the victories that are just waiting for you to enjoy, and see the fulfilment of all that God has promised in your life. 

My friend, you have a choice to make. Do you spend your life just wandering around a mountainside and never really moving forward, or even advancing to take the ground from the enemy? Or, do you take courage from God’s word and take His direction, and break out and go forward in God?

God rewards your faith in Him, He will strengthen you every step of the way. It’s time to break out and advance. It is time to go forward in God.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.

  1. Funny, I just read one post on resting and waiting and now this one on get up and get going. Really, we need to be self-aware, able to discern the signs of the times, our intimacy with God depends on our survival to move when we have to move and wait till we have to wait – I guess most of us do not get it – thanks for the push…
