SPRING FORTH NOW
Then Joshua gave orders to the people’s leaders: “Go through the camp and give this order to the people: ‘Pack your bags. In three days you will cross this Jordan River to enter and take the land God, your God, is giving you to possess.’’’ Then Joshua addressed the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh. He said, “Remember what Moses the servant of God commanded you: God, your God, gives you rest and he gives you this land. Your wives, your children, and your livestock can stay here east of the Jordan, the country Moses gave you; but you, tough soldiers all, must cross the River in battle formation, leading your brothers, helping them until God, your God, gives your brothers a place of rest just as he has done for you. They also will take possession of the land that God, your God, is giving them. Then you will be free to return to your possession, given to you by Moses the servant of God, across the Jordan to the east.” They answered Joshua: “Everything you commanded us, we’ll do. Wherever you send us, we’ll go. We obeyed Moses to the letter; we’ll also obey you—we just pray that God, your God, will be with you as he was with Moses. Anyone who questions what you say and refuses to obey whatever you command him will be put to death. Strength! Courage!”
Joshua 1:10-18 (MSG)
It simply amazes me how people, places, and things will use you for their advantage and then turn around and tell you that it is your fault and challenge you to clean up the mess that they have created, i.e., the Republicans and generally, the white collective. What the Republicans and the white collective have done, uncovered their original sin; not calling out a lie in the beginning and then denying the lies and now massaging lies for their advantages, no doubt, on the back of a Black man, a Law Enforcement officer, who, once again, cleaned up their mess. I suggest to you it is Black people’s gift to be the advancers of humanity and all of God’s creation because we are the originals and thus, out of Egypt, which is in Africa, God calls His child; the Messiah, the Anointed One, the Savior. Therefore, as the intended Anointed One for God’s creation, we are challenged not just to react, but respond by reacting favorably to our expected end which demands our Organizing Our Forces to ensure where we are, the mess that’s exist hat we do so in a way that advances ours to Soar, to thrive. Before the foundations of the world was laid, God’s child had already been slain, offered as a sacrifice because it was an integral part of God’s plan before He ever created the heavens and earth, including humanity. God thought and then spoke, God planned and then activated, not just in the short-term but also for the long term, eternity. Long-term thinking and thus acting requires one to be organized, especially as it relates to the forces, potential at your disposal so they may be appropriately applied, ensuring that the Word, promises becomes flesh, real in our lives. Organize Your Forces toward taking possession of that which God has promised, declared beforehand that you would Soar to the fulfillment of each and every one of His promises for your life. Joshua, in leading the people to possess their land, taught us that it was necessary to prepare; ready ourselves, prioritizing by leveraging our experiences and expertise while also praying; staying in constant communication with God in order to take possession of our promises. Organize Your Forces by ensuring you are prepared for the task before you, prioritizing your experience and experiences and by prayerful counsel leverage your potential to Soar.
