The Promised Land is Yours, as Promised!

"Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged." (Deuteronomy 1: 21)

Because of all that Jesus has done for us in Christ, we can know and believe that He is providing all things for us:

"3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:" (Ephesians 1: 3)

We are blessed with all spiritual blessings, which refers to their origin in the Holy Spirit, and through His Spirit they flow into our lives.

God our Father assures us that we can receive all things, because we receive through His Son:

"He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" (Romans 8: 32)

Jesus is our Promised Land, our rest:

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11: 28)

The writer of Hebrews therefore exhorts us:

"8For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 10For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief." (Hebrews 4: 8-11)

Jesus promised that He would never leave us nor forsake us, along with all our needs, and we can rest on every promise, for all of them are Yea and Amen in Christ (2 Corinthians 1: 20)

The Promised Land is yours, Beloved, as Promised by God, and delivered to us by the Work of Christ, which we receive through His Holy Spirit.
