From the Pastor's Desk
We are all familiar with the journey of the Israelites. Had they taken a straight route, it would have been 11 days from Egypt to the promised land. God purposely kept them in the wilderness for a short period in order to do a work in them. But when the moment came, they rebelled in doubt and unbelief, spending 40 years in the wilderness.
However, when they finally began to enter the promised land, they were aligned with God's purpose, and they were unstoppable. The Bible testifies that no city was too strong for them (Deut. 2:36). They rolled through conquest after conquest. The original Hebrew literally reads that "no wall was too high for them." In a day when cities surrounded themselves with literal walls for protection, no wall was high enough or thick enough to keep the Israelites out because they were on God's mission.
We tend to focus on the negatives of weakness, failure, and setback. But the truth is that when we align ourselves with God's kingdom agenda instead of our own agenda, we literally become unstoppable. It is time to move forward in God's kingdom purpose. When we align ourselves with His purpose, we walk in His power. "If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Rom. 8:31). If you are following God, you are unstoppable! The old Nancy Harmon song says, "Nothing's too big for our God. No, no, no, no. Nothing's too big for our God. Not gonna be discouraged, not gonna be depressed. Nothing's too big for God, and I'm in His rest."
