Exodus 23:29-30 (KJV); I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee. By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.
God cannot expand your territory if you do not have the vision to properly use it.
In our theme scripture, he did not expand the territory of the children of Israel because they were not able to take care of the land he was giving them.
As such, this inheritance could only come to them in bits, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field multiply against them.
Understand that this has nothing to do with how much money you have to fulfil the God vision. Rather, it is about the power at work in a man that convicts him to seek for things that are bigger than mere physical possessions or bigger than himself.
You want to be of influence in your nation. That is a wonderful vision. Are you ready for what it demands?
You want to be a force to reckon with in the world. That is a great dream but do you know what is required of you?
Always remember that all greatness requires preparation.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God cannot expand your territory if you do not have the vision to properly use it. Always remember that all greatness requires preparation.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for Your dream and vision for my life. I see it like You see it and have the grace to build it like You want it built. My spirit beholds the God pattern. By this wisdom, I can never fail. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
