In Canaan you do not fight for victory. You fight from victory. In the wilderness you strive. In Canaan you trust. In the wilderness you seek God's attention. In Canaan you already have God's favor. In the wilderness you doubt your salvation. In Canaan you know you are saved. You move from wanting-to-have to believing you already do.
Don't measure your life by your ability; measure it by God's.
You can't control your tongue, temper, or sexual urges, but God can.
Promised Land people say, "I'm a victor in spite of my surroundings."
Glory Days require an ongoing trust in God's word.

The real conflict...was with Satan and his demons.
He's [Satan's] ticked off at you. All this talk about Glory Days and Promised Land living has him in a foul mood. Your wilderness days did not trouble him. But now you are stepping into your Promised Land life. Daring to walk in faith, not fear; leaning on grace, not guilt; hearing Go'd voice more, the devil's voice less.

These words [negative thoughts/words] create alliances with the devil. They grant him access to your spirit.
Live out of your inheritance, not your circumstance.
March like a Promised Land conqueror. Blast your ram's horn. Sing songs of redemption, and declare scriptures of triumph. Marinate your mind with the declaration of Jesus, "It is finished!" (John 19:30), and the announcement of the angels, "He is not here; for He is risen" (Matt. 28:6). Personalize the proclamations of Paul: "We are more than conquerors through [Christ]" (Rom. 8:37), and "I can do all things through Christ" (Phil. 4:13). As you do, the demons will begin to scatter. They have no choice but to leave.
Defeat your strongholds with the spiritual weapons of worship, Scripture, and prayer.

You are heaven's first and final attempt at you.
This is your destiny. This is you at your best. When you stand at the intersection of your skill and God's call, you are standing at the corner of Promised Land Avenue and Glory Days Boulevard. This is Canaan.
What do you do well? What do people ask you to do again? What task comes easily? What topic keeps your attention? Your skill set is your road map. It leads you to your territory. Take note of your strengths.
Do you really want to meditate on your misery? Will reciting your problems turn you into a better person? No. But changing your mind-set will...Immerse your mind in God-thoughts.
Faith is a choice.
God fights for you.
