God’s description of your Canaan Land……
Deuteronomy – 12 (KJV)
“For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:
But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:
A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year”
Deuteronomy 8:7, 9 (KJV)
“For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills.
A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack anything in it”.
Life is always a choice, that has not changed and so, when it comes to moving from your Egypt, where you are a slave to your Canaan Land where you have the best of Living, it is all up to you. Egypt could be Safe but it does not change the fact that you are still a slave.  Until you move, you will not get to the place of your lifting, all you do is toil and break your back, thinking you are living one great life…..but all you are doing is existing. In Egypt, your dreams will never happen, you will always be a mediocre and you will never get the chance to run your own race. It is in running your own race that your life is fulfilled. God wants you to move to move to Canaan Land, Egypt is not his plan for you.


Moving from that Egypt to your Canaan Land is a necessary step if you want to live your life to the fullest. It is not an easy journey because there is a Pharaoh you have submitted to who will not let your go, unless you break away forcefully.  As much as we would love to leave Egypt to Canaan Land, we are yet to decide if we will give up our Pharaohs. He makes us safe and he provides for us (so we think), being his slave is better than facing the Red Sea and the Desert.
For most of us, we are so much in Love with our Egypt that we think that is the best way of life; we have no plans of leaving, not now perhaps. We hear of our Canaan Land and there is a feeling that things will be better there but we are not sure we are ready to take that risk. How can we risk the Egypt we already have for a Canaan Land we are not so sure of? It is an unknown path and for fear of failing, we just stay in our Egypt…. We are safe in Egypt, which is enough reason. Better still, let us wait for our Moses to come and deliver us.
You must know now that Moses will never come if you are waiting for a Moses to come and contend with your Pharaoh. You are the Prophet of your life, you are the Moses of your deliverance and you have to make the decision to leave Egypt now.
 Aren’t tired of running around in circles? Don’t you want more out of life? Or you just want to sit around all your life, feeling under achieved, wasted, spent and unhappy? Are you going to be waiting on it all your life? For that big break, for a motivator?  It is your life and you should want better, you should want more because you deserve more. Reject the life of a slave. A life that does not help you be the best you can be, the type of relationships that makes you feel inadequate.
The journey to Canaan Land is not easy I have to tell you. You will face uncertainties, hunger, fear, there will be battles to fight and that you must win. There is the famous Red Sea which you must face to cross over to the other side. It is a fight and you must activate your faith to run your race. Egypt may look promising but the promise land is better. You must desire to leave Egypt and all it has to offer you. You must dethrone the Pharaoh that is ruling your life, keeping you in Egypt for the goodies of the moment and run with your life to that promise land.  Decide to move to your Canaan land regardless of the challenges on the way.  You are the prophet of your life and that makes you your own Moses. Talk a walk now from Egypt, your Canaan Land is waiting for you.
