31 Kings

Way too many times we give up prior to seeing the breakthrough. There have been many times in my life I felt like giving up on something. Felt like, what is the use, if God wanted me to have this then He would make it happen.
Let’s think about Joshua, many people remember him for being the one who entered into the Promised Land. Joshua and his men made the wall at Jericho collapse. He was able to enter in the Promised Land. But there is more to the story than that.
Did you know that Joshua had to fight and defeat 31 kings prior to entering into the Promised Land?

The enemy is going to throw some kings you will need to battle prior to you receiving what God has for you. There is going to be a moment in your leadership journey, where it is going to cost you something. As you grow and move past the battles the enemy has put in front of you, you will have to decide: Do I press on or Do I give up.

I want to encourage you today that the battle is not won in one victory. It might take you 31 battles, some might be victories and some might be losses however press on toward the goal. Continue to persevere in what God has called you to do, because the enemy might just throw 31 kings you will need to battle in front of you prior to you seeing the blessing.
