Verse. 3: ‘I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses’.

We were at a level of being lifted; we have now entered a level of taking over. God had given a promise of land to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. These people were given land of Canaan. In life’s journey, move to the direction of your dream. Do not stop until you embrace your dream.

God has given Bread of Life Church and you as an individual many promises. Time has now come for you to possess your possessions. Like the children of Israel, you have to fight for it, there are giants and opposition, it will require faith and sacrifice on our part. But the good news is that God is on our side. We shall take over and step into our inheritance of blessings.

1. The significance of the year of Taking Over
It’s a year of entering Canaan and fulfilling our dreams. We are now in a season of taking over. One thing that is constant is change. Change brings new ideas and progress. We have entered a session of transition. Taking over speaks of changing for the better in order to promote and take to you to another higher level.

2. Nature of this take over
The children of Israel were promised land filled with milk and honey; this is a representation of the fulfillment of their dreams and goals. Canaan is a place where God is saying, I will bless you.
2018, will be characterized new beginnings, the land of Canaan represented prosperity. God will usher you into prosperity you have just dreamt about.

3. Steps of taking over
God has prepared something good but someone may be sitting on your blessing. You may face opposition because your blessing is in the enemy’s territory.

How do you take over?
- Step out by faith in God
- Walk in obedience to God
- Be willing to fight the good fight of faith. Mathew 11:12
- Persist – do not give up easily
- Sow dangerous seeds for your breakthrough
- Practice the law of separation by cutting off association and anything else that may not have worked.
