Now Is the Time to Enter the Promised Land

by | Apr 25, 2022 | Revival

Do you have promises from God that you are believing for that have not yet come to pass? As daughters and sons of the Most-High King, we stand in faith on what the Word of God says and the individual promises He has spoken over each one of our lives.

Standing in faith isn’t always easy, so I want to encourage you today from a specific passage in Scripture.

In the Book of Joshua, right after Caleb and Joshua explored the land that God had promised them, they quickly started to face backlash from the Israelites. The two spies had told the crowd not to be afraid of the giants but to trust in the Lord, despite what the other spies were saying. The Israelites started to talk about stoning Joshua and Caleb, even in their faithfulness to the Lord!

As followers of Jesus Christ, we must trust and obey the Lord, even when everyone else is believing a report of fear. His ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. The Israelites were afraid of what they saw in the natural, a seemingly unmovable situation. Joshua and Caleb were probably nervous that their own friends would stone them, wondering if they would follow them into the promises of God.

Numbers 14:24 (NLT) says, “But my servant Caleb has a different attitude than the others have. He has remained loyal to me, so I will bring him into the land he explored.” God looked at Caleb’s heart and saw he had faith and trusted in his heavenly Father. Even though the Israelites saw the Red Sea part and their enemy defeated, they had already forgotten what God had done.

All throughout Scripture we read about the heroes of the faith setting up memorial stones in places where God had moved triumphantly. They would set up the stones to remind themselves and the generations to come what God had done. Can you imagine?

They didn’t have Bibles to read and stories after stories written down to encourage them, so they used stones to memorialize what the Lord had done throughout the generations. How blessed are we to have the living and breathing Word at our fingertips each and every day!

While you are waiting and believing for the promises of God to come to pass, go back and look at your own memorial stones. Look at what God has done for you and your family over the years. In this season, with all that is going on in the world, don’t bow down to the agenda of fear that is trying to discourage you. What does the Bible say? It says, “Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?” (Matt. 6:26, NLT). {eoa}
