Taking the giant leap – Part 2


Pastor David Adeoye

You will need to stretch and make maximum use of your God-given potentials. You will need to dare the impossible, without the fear of failure.

I can do all things (which He has called me to do) through Him, Who strengthens and empowers me (to fulfil His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him, Who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.) Philippians 4:13AMP

“Now arise, continue on, and go through the valley of the Arnon. Look, I have handed over to you Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land. Begin! Take possession (of it) and fight with him in battle. This day I will begin to put the dread and the fear of you on the peoples (pagans) under the whole heaven, who, when they hear the reports about you, will tremble and be in anguish because of you.” Deuteronomy 2:24-25


As the nation of Israel was travelling through the wilderness on her way to the land that God promised them – the land flowing with milk and honey, they got to a place that was a little comfortable. They began to build camps, and so they settled there for too long. Probably some of them felt why go further, when this place was not really bad.

They wanted to settle for the good and leave the best for any other nation that might be interested. The question here is: why walk when you can soar? Why must you settle for the bronze, when you can go for the gold? Why must you settle for anything less than the best God has destined you for?

This is your season. This is your time. Be strong and courageous. It’s time to strive for the best. It’s time to take a bold step into what God has prepared for you, in this year of TAKING OVER TERRITORIES. It is time to be as bold as a lion and take a giant leap into your wealthy place.

“There are three things, which are stately in step, even four which are stately in their stride: The lion, which is mighty among beasts and does not turn back before any; Prov 30:29-30AMP.

Nothing can be more majestic than the deliberate, equal, confident and firm walk of the lion. A lion is a large heavily-built wild cat. A lion is one of the courageous, if not the most courageous animals in the jungle. This is why courageous and brave people are referred to as lion-hearted. Lion is known for strength and courage.

“A Lion is the strongest of beasts, who has no fear of anything he meets” (Pr 30:30DR).

A lion does not retreat for any. Courage is in the DNA of lions. Don’t forget that JESUS is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, and we are called Christians-Christ-like. We have the DNA of the Lion of the tribe of Judah; we can’t afford to act like chickens.

What people call the lion-share is the biggest share. A wise man said it takes a lion-heart to have a lion-share. This means, it takes boldness to go for the best that God has prepared for you.

It’s time to start acting like you know you don’t have any limitation, Brian Tracy said, “Act boldly, and unseen forces will come to your aid.” You cannot move the Mighty Hand of God without faith and boldness.
