Deutronomy 1:6-8
"The Lord our God spoke to us in Horeb, saying: 'You have dwelt long enough at this mountain'. 'Turn and take your journey, and go to the mountains of the Amorites, to all the neighbouring places in the plain, in the mountains and in the lowland, in the South and on the sea coast, to the land of the Canaanites....See I have set the land before you; go in and posses the land....".

Our God is a good God! He would not only call you out from where you have tarried for a long time, He would always show you the way to take in order to get to the promised land. He is not a God of confusion, when He gives a word, he shows you how to accomplish it. When ever God ask you to move, it means He is ready to lead the way. Halleluyah!

See vs 7, He told them TURN! Your previous way can't take you to the promised land, your ideas, certificates, connections and degrees can't take you there either. There must be a 'turning' on your part before God can do the leading. If you don't turn, it means you are not ready to move. God have spoken, He is only waiting for you to turn and follow His lead...'Oba aranni nise fayati...'

But be aware that after your turning and His leading, you will still encounter the plain, the low land and the mountains. But, the assurance is that God is the one leading. The journey into destiny is not the absence of challenges but the presence of His leading.

The one who has called you into turning from your own way into His own way is capable of leading you through, no matter the obstacle on the way.

Welcome to your promised land IJN!
