‘Goshen’ is not enough

Many of us are in Goshen with regards to where our lives are. Goshen is where the Israelites lived while they were under their slave masters in Egypt. You see in Goshen, things were not so bad. They had food, they had enough to drink. They had children in sound health; they were just fine. But it wasn’t good enough. God wanted them to move to a better place – the promised land where they could have more than enough! ‘Just enough’ was not good enough, and that’s what Goshen was.

Many of us are in Goshen, and we are too content to be in Goshen. We are in a place where things are just good enough, where we have access to some things, but not all the things we desire. And we tend to chastise ourselves for wanting more. We tend to compare ourselves to those who have less so we believe Goshen is enough.

Goshen is not enough. Where you are right now is not enough. What you have now can be bigger and better. You can go from Goshen to the promised land! Stop sitting in your comfort zone (Goshen). Aim for bigger, aim for better. You can have all you desire and more, if you will just accept that Goshen is not where your journey ends. You can make it to the promised land where you’ll have more than enough.
