A copy of Pastor Alan's book lover of my soul. This can be yours for your donation this month to Alan Wright Ministries as you listen to today's message go deeper as we send you today's special offer. Contact us at that's pastor or call 877-544-4860 that's 877-544-4860. More on that later in the program but now let's get started with today's teaching here is a matter of planting and cultivating harvesting crops also involve protecting the crops from tests and predators and disease and it requires proper rotation of crop land and grazing land and in Canaan a lot of the farming had to be at its best is what they call terrorist farming which is very labor intensive and God was essentially saying I'm a give you the hall land right now. You don't have enough people to take the whole land you might have enough to get the crops planted, but you will have enough to protect you won't have enough to water and you won't have enough to watch over you what we have enough people to be able to properly rotate where you do the farming they say.

Essentially, I don't want to have too much success too quickly to continue and grow an increase in then you'll be ready for. There's so many ways a goddess is let us increase before we are given the whole promised land. And is it so if you put in the negative be like when you you can't handle success but that's not the way got all the jobs in a positive piece and bless you with a land more fertile than you ever imagined. His flow of milk and honey crops will grow quicker than you've ever seen grow before it is good be more fruitful than you ever imagine Azam to give you give you some time to increase so that you can fully enjoy it and make total successful use of it all was the point in having all the land. If you can take care of the I have tracked three groundhogs now paid a man to come paid a man was to come and install wire mesh against my back screen porch slab because the groundhogs were digging under our back porch against the house and my wife was pretty sure the house will fall down and so we got the wire mesh attacks against the slab down a foot in the ground a foot and 1/2 so the ground will come the frustrated go somewhere and we came back from somewhere and haul him 2 feet down under the wire mesh slab again in the backyard and saw big as she is, what is the point of having more houses than which you can project from grandma's. I'm not going to give you the promised land too fast. Last, the wild beasts in the groundhogs, and undermine everything you're doing because you you got planting crops and then you gotta keep the ground still enough experience and enough people and enough resources to do it waste adventure splash in time you got yourself a trophy. Euro one and we got a saying around here is our leadership in our staff met. What if you win, what if you win one of all things you dream they come to pass. I want to be ready for. Here's what it does when you take the land.

Little by little. Here's why.

So beautiful and powerful taken the land.

Little by little in the first place. It builds gratitude.

It builds gratitude. You know if you get everything it wants. Maybe you celebrate once and then you forget to be thankful. But boy, when you get it little by little, you learn to celebrate every step of the way all the celebrate every step of the way to just take a step and find something good and just pause there and give thanks to those you love story when David was bringing the ark back into Jerusalem and he was being given the throne and said they will bring the ark in and they go for little bit night stop and then they'd offer a sacrifice in the appraisal and I just go will be. Appraisal for a reason. I want to give them the land this way was I wanted to go into it marked one day around Jericho and praise the Lord and marked another day around in faith. Praise the Lord and on the seventh day when the walls come tumbling down. Praise and thank the Lord and in catch your breath. After celebrate and get ready for the Philistines's battle after battle after battle, your promised land is a battleground and part of the beauty of that is you get to celebrate and give God thanks for every battle that you see him when and every single step of the way gratitude, Renée Brown says is in her research the single most important practice or emotional health and violence In her best-selling book 1000 gifts a wonderful book that she learned a lot when she decided to make a list of a thousand things for which she was thankful she writes I begin the list not of gifts I want but of gifts. I already have number one morning shadows across the old floor number two JM piled high on the toast number three, the cry of a blue Jay atop the spruce tree.

She started writing. She said when I give thanks for the seemingly microscopic I make a place for God to grow within me this dare to write down 1000 things I love it really is a dare to name all the ways that God loves me. When you give him thanks for air every little thing you remember and how loved you are and how good he is. Little by little means you get to praise him day after day battle after battle step after step, whatever good give him thanks. There's a second thing that little by little does is it it builds hope and talent right will have more teaching moment from today's important series. Glad you've heard about it with your use of the leading mind experience it in the hybrid. Allen writes the left book lover of myself as a love story from beginning to and spiritual bride of Christ, the perfect bike.

The Bible tells not just on time and miles and the links to walk with for any man who is found in mother the woman tasted the sweetness of God's love for you this night pretty woman who searched for 2525 what can only be found fully in God my Dr. the five love languages size incredible reality that God perceives us in life comes to lover of myself. Ancient biblical accounts explode in the heart except Christ proposal and showing his embrace of gravel in his love.

After the match meeting, lover of my soul right. The gospel is shared when you get Allen right ministries.

This broadcast is only possible because of listener financial support. When you get today. We will send you a special offer. We are happy to send this to you as I thanks from Allen right ministries, seven 877-544-4860 877-544-4861 come to our website past days teaching your once again is Romans five verse three Paul lays this out very clearly. We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope is a well-defined process that is at work is inviolable. It always happens this way, and it leads to the thing that we need to live life with energy and fervor. And that's hope is they are suffering hard and thinks things that might be painful temporarily things that feel heavy okay. It brings to mind the image of a weightlifter. In fact, says that suffering those hard things Bruce endurance.

The word for endurance is a word that means most literally bearing up under the weight of something so when you do that you're like a weightlifter who lifts the way it's causing some sort of micro tears and muscle tissue very small but feels exhausting and but then give it a day or so and those places rebuild and are are bigger and stronger those muscles are bigger and stronger. The way that muscle gets bigger and stronger is by bearing up under a weight as I will but before that I trim some sums of trees and stuff use along polio's late morning before the rains came and I woke it was more so why am I not sore what did I do. Oh yeah, and I was just thinking about man that I've had that same pole for 20 years and I dismember 20 years and I can hold that whole lot like this and now my problem right away. Sit in front of a computer and type in sermons and sit in planning means that and build muscle. Evidently you got to let the muscles bear up under some weight of something to build up otherwise. Talk about things now in the spirit we rejoice that we got some weight that we can live Paul say and it's produce this endurance with those in the endurance has produced character the same as putting muscle into our soul would steal into our spirit is changed in our care.

Seek God's plan for us is to grow in the fruit of the spirit that changes in our character so that we walk with him an abiding way is one thing to worship Jesus and and which are loving getting side with the people of God and feel some momentary joy because your visited by the Holy Spirit. That's fantastic. That's not character.

Character is how you thinking you feel all the time and what to do with very little hardship and are you like a just a ship tossed on the waves coaster all the time or is there something that's incrementally getting stronger. This process Paul says is making a stronger our character is in chains and character said produces hope.

When we lack character as soon as something bad happens will go well as it was, but see characters not like that characters like yeah will say again and that's that's that's found little bit of an off night there. But you know with the training we been through and we know that the ball is mistrustful of who Pearson character produces hope, which is not wishful thinking, but it is a blessed certainty of a better future.

That's what God wants us to live with. Ultimately, with the hope of heaven in our heart we have an absolute certainty of the deposit within us of the Holy Spirit that heaven is where were going to live like that. I think God wants us to live like kids knowing Christmas is coming, but I don't know what I will give you good I don't know everything will be a bit about heaven, but I knows will be good. I'm feeling is, that's what was his live with and here's the third thing I think why gives us the promise land.

Little by little. Maybe this is the most important.

It builds faith because faith is something that increases as you see God's faithfulness over time and therefore when it comes little by little the testimonies are growing, you're not a one and done where you got this sudden one big testimony.

You are a child of God who taken the hand of the father and he's walking you step by step by step by step years ago we had visiting evangelists from Australia. His name was Clark Taylor many years ago.

So we all member Clark Taylor. He had a healing ministry in this amazing miracles happen under his ministry and he had a series of meetings with us and we remember all that. But I think one of the things we all remember most was he preached a message one night about growing about 1%.

It was just fantastic and he said it like this.

He said are you having a hard time having faith for the whole final vision to come to pass these that's all right.

Could you just get faith to grow 1%. Could you just imagine any arena of your life getting better by 1%. Yet we could do that you might be thinking I want to eat healthier and I want to get more fit no and if you got a vision of the end the weightlifting poster child of well you my God TCB and that could you imagine just eating and exercising 1% better than you are now one person is one less piece of pizza that I last saw you on me just sent. Could you imagine your marriage just okay. Maybe. Maybe it's in a rough patch and hard to envision it being this perfect marriage ever.

There was fantastic communication and great great respect and love and intimacy in and in all that, but could you imagine could you have faith for the better by one person could do that we could communicate 1% better. Could you just imagine your prayer life right now and again you get on not see. I can't see me one spiritual giant. Some of the five or more.

I'm praying for our have, could you just, could you please envision your prayer life. Getting 1% better.

What what what what what is there at work that's going on that you need to improve that and you you you you know that he needs to get better. Could you just imagine it getting better about 1% say because you what happened if you could just have faith for improvement by 1%. Once at 1% is happy. Guess what you need.

Then they fight for the next 1% in the fight for the next 1% in the next 1% 1% of the time you realize it's on. I think this is why God gave you the land, little by little, you probably have a whole. Right now you don't even have any conception see no ear has heard those you love to do so.

Just have faith right now what's in front of you understand little by little the next to the Lord. I'm definitely going to give you some take the word and the vision.

Here's how we do it about to give it all to you in a day.

I'm not to give it all to you in a year, give it to you little bilateral and then when you hold the trophy suite but you had not idolized the trophy is just a manifestation of all the progress over a long time. So now the trophy is just a manifestation of a character that is built hope into your very life.

God will in the end he says confuse the enemy and the enemy will turn his back and beloved in that what happened, the devil thought that by putting Jesus on the cross that hell was winning the ultimate victory, but shall we say it. The devil was confused he was mistaken because it was through God's plan and the foreordained purpose of Jesus is coming, that he would go to the cross and laid down his life so that he could take on the sin of the world. It's a while all demons mocked Jesus. They were confused.

They thought they were winning and they were loosing and silently upon the shed blood of Jesus and the earth began to shake and people started coming out other tombs in our resurrection day stole the stone rolled away and an angel saying he's not here.

There was Paul says public filiation in the heavenly's of all the demons who had become confused and now they are on the run. Resist the devil and his purposes will be confused and he will flee from you. Take it little by little and don't be frustrated if you don't get the whole promised land.

At one time because in due season. Beloved, we are going to reap and that's Alan Wright. Today's good news message is titled little by little the series 2nd wind master Al is back with us in the studio shearing is boarding good news thought for the day. Just a moment. Stay with us. Glad you heard about it with you. You believed in my experience it in the hypothalamus, the left but never of myself as a love story from beginning to end spiritual bride of Christ, the perfect bike. The Bible tells about his content in March and the links to walk with for any man who is found. Remember, the woman tasted the sweetness of God's love for you is like pretty woman who searched for 25 inches long for can only be found fully my doctor the five love languages size incredible reality that God pursues us in life comes to lover of myself. Ancient biblical accounts explode in the heart except Christ's proposal and showing his embrace of gravel in his love. After the match made in heaven. It's lover of my soul. Alan Wright. The gospel is shared when you get to Alan Wright Ministries. This broadcast is only possible because of listener financial support. When you get today. We will send you a special offer. We are happy to send this to you as I thanked him Alan Wright Ministries, seven 877-544-4860 877-544-4861 come to our website pastor out and got a work breakdown industry with past real ensuring her parting good news thought for the day so little by little hole in second when what you take away your best route, so when new get a sense of destiny and five. It's a glorious thing and when you get a hold of the promises of God in you read the wording of all this is what God's promise me there can be disconnect the dissonance between what I'm experiencing right now and what I know God's promise and maybe the something Arliss are you been praying about it.

You've been diligent in praying about and you feel assured that God wants this.

You know the fulfillment of this of this prayer request and come yet. Well, that's the way it was with the promise land. He said here's this land they gave the dim the borders and the A.

Specifics of. Here's the link you to get me said I'm gonna give it to you but again you get a little by little step at a time and I think part of this as we learned today Daniel is that God wants us to build a sense, spiritual muscle, no. If you can build up physical muscle. It it happens little by little it it it's something that you lift the weight and un-bearing up underneath that you might not might not feel pleasant but there's a process that then little by little new muscle tissue is forming or something like that here at the end of this pandemic and were still living. A lot of uncertainties we've been through so much and God is is is on the move and I would say my listeners. You probably have some more steel in your spirit now than you did beforehand and you may not feel it yet but it's there and you may not feel like because you will have the whole promised land visual have all of it yet drop making progress but you are God's taking you and it's okay if it's just 1% today and 1% tomorrow your on the way, promised lands, the violet, if you only caught part of today's teaching.
