Day 29- Gives us the Land

Jodee Schrlau Delight encouragement

Numbers 14:8

 

Numbers 14:8 (AMP)

If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land which flows with milk and honey.

The land here refers to the land promised to Abraham and his descendants.  God had brought Israel out of Egypt and was showing them the land that He wanted them to possess. You know the story, Moses sent twelve spies out to scout to land.  When they came back, ten of the spies saw taking the land as an impossibility. "We are like grasshoppers in their sight."  Only Joshua and Caleb, said the land was exceedingly good and they should go for it.  They informed the people that their enemies protection had been removed and the Lord was with them.  They believed now was the time to go and take what God had given them.  Unfortunately, even though they saw the abundance of the land, the people decided the risk was to great.  They wanted to go back into bondage, rather then fight for what God had said was theirs.

We have established the Lord does, indeed, delight in us.  And because He delights in you, He has prepared a land flowing with milk and honey, for you to occupy.

Your land may not be a piece of property. It is more likely to be a place or situation that God want you to conquer and possess.  It is the desire of your heart we have been talking about.  That land is where you will experience the greatest love, joy, and prosperity. It is your place to receive grace, favor and blessing.  As you spy out the land, you may feel like a grasshopper and that the odds of success are nil.  However, if God has said that is your land, stand up and claim it as yours.  No matter what the odds are, you plus God's promise will cause you to triumph.  You may not win every skirmish and some of the battles will be harder than you would like them to be.  But if you stick with God, stay on course and fight,  you will possess the land and everything good in it.

 

Psalms 144:1 says: "Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight"  The battle of Jericho was fought by marching around the city, Ester fought her battle at a banqueting table, and David won his battle with a slingshot.  How is God teaching you to fight?
