“Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion of your inheritance,” when they were only a few men in number, very few, and strangers in it.” (Psalm 105:10-12)
The promise of the Lord is from ancient times, before any of the existing tribes now present were around. This is not politics, but promise. God gave the land to Jacob. The Word of the Lord has been with us throughout history and it speaks not wishes, but truth. What God speaks comes to pass. Live in the promise of the Lord and know the truth of the ages, for He will accomplish what He promised.
Lord, I hear so many conflicting messages in this world. Help me to see through the false ones to hear Your Word of truth. Guide me in the path of righteousness that I may be one who inherits Your goodness and mercy. Adopt me as one of Your children that I may abide in You and Your truth, and Your presence may abide in me. You are the God who has always been, Who makes unbreakable promises.
Lord Jesus, You are the fulfillment of all promises, for in You is hope and eternity. Lead me into the way You have established that I may abide in You and You in me. Teach me as Your disciple that I may come into the heavenly promised land and dwell in the house of the Father forever. May I be found this day doing Your work and living in the hope You give. Amen.
