Exodus 23:29,30, (Passion) “But I will not drive them out in a single year, because the land would become desolate and the wild animals too numerous for you. 30 Little by little I will drive them out before you, until you have increased enough to take possession of the land.”
Over the years, God has spoken rhema words. I try to obey though I may not want to at first or don’t realize He’s talking to me. He’s built a trusting relationship.
Do the laundry ... Stop in this store ... Without Me you can do nothing ... My peace
See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven. Hebrews 12:25
