Living In The Promised Land


"Standing on the promises of Christ my King, Through eternal ages let His praises ring;
Glory in the highest I will shout and sing, standing on the promises of God"


R. Kelso Carter 1886

To Joshua, God said; "I will give you every place where you set you foot, as I promised Moses" (Josh.1:3). This was the promise that God made to His people before they crossed the Jordan into the PROMISED LAND. When we take Jesus into our lives, we cross over the Jordan too. Our land of milk and honey is living in this promised land as Christians. We are under God's umbrella of grace and are a part of His church. There are many wonderful aspects included in His promised land. "For no matter how many promises God has made, they are 'Yes' in Christ. And so through Him the 'Amen' is spoken by us to the glory of God" (2 Cor.1:20). In this place we are always blessed with the presence of our God as the Holy Spirit dwells within us. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Phil.4:13). We have a power that is only available in Him. In this promised land we have a lot of company. God has made these promises to all who believe and obey. We have all become God's chosen people. "Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path" (Psa.119:105). He doesn't leave us alone in the wilderness, but provides the light necessary to guide our path. We are not promised an easy life, but rather comfort to help us through the hard times. He calls us to do His work here on earth in unity. "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you" (Heb.13:5). He promises that He will never leave or forsake us, and the best part is that God always keeps His promises..I really love living in this promised land, how about you?

Have a great day....Let His light shine through you.... Love mark Phil.4:11
