If God took Israel around the Mountain, through the desert, in the valley, over a 40 year period before bringing them into the promised land, then maybe you are just now coming into your time.
We all have a proving ground to go through where we are tried, tested, refined and our character is built so that we can enter into the plan that God has had in store for us all along. The key for us is to continue to stay the course, stay passionate, fan the flame of desire to accomplish all that we have been called of God to do.
You will make it to your promised land, your dreams your desires, if you realize that God is working on you, preparing you for what He has prepared for you. Be patient, stay passionate and allow God to work in you so that He can work through you. Your destiny will come to fruition if you stay patient, keep your life focused on the things of God and let Him have His way and His will in your life.
When Pharaoh finally let the people go, God did not lead them along the main road that runs through Philistine territory, even though that was the shortest route to the Promised Land. God said, “If the people are faced with a battle, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.”
So God led them in a roundabout way through the wilderness toward the Red Sea. Thus the Israelites left Egypt like an army ready for battle. Exodus 13:17-18
For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13
While Jesus was here on earth, he offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death. And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God. Even though Jesus was God’s Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered. In this way, God qualified him as a perfect High Priest, and he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him. Hebrews 5:7-9
