"Say"

“Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in that land and befriend faithfulness,” Psalm 37:3.  In other words, enjoy the habitable land God has provided.  Be faithful to it.  Do not try to occupy land that is not yours to occupy… .dwell here and befriend tending to this land…
“Wait for the Lord and keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land,” Psalm 37:34.  While others are taking land not their own, by force, you are befriending the territory God has given you.  You are waiting on His command…
“The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way… .for the Lord loves justice, he will not forsake his saints,” Psalm 37:23 & 28.  God loves the just man who cares for his territory and does not take what is not his to take.  God will be just towards the just man and He will lead Him, step by step, towards a larger habitation, a greater inheritance…
“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart,” Psalm 37:4.  Ask and wait.  Enjoy your habitation.  Delight in His moral and provisional will.  Ask and wait.  Trust His moving.  Trust that He wants to enlarge your territory and if you move with Him you will inhabit the very desires of your heart.
We cannot just take whatever we desire.  Our desires must be laid at His feet; but we can attend to His desires and move with His will.  As we become deeply concerned about the fulfillment of the desires of God’s heart a revelation occurs: God has been concerned about our desires all along!  He is exalting us to inherit land!
Therefore, the moving of boundaries is no longer, for us, a matter of subjective lust - taking what is not ours to take.  It is a matter of agreement with His will… .and we have confidence in this to ask and wait and simply “Say”.
“…If you have faith… .You will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you,” Matthew 17:20.  Mountains represent a boundary.  They stand in our way when going from “here” to “there”.  They stand in God’s way as well and the expansion of habitable land may require their removal.  So when God is moving a mountain to enlarge the place where you live, you will have confidence!  There is no need to kick and whine and scream... .to kill or steal or destroy… .all you have to do is “Say”!
