Land of Blessing
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
Land of Blessing
For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV 2000
God gave the Hebrew nation an earthly inheritance and promised them earthly blessings. All they had to do was enter into and possess the land. God did not want His people living in the wilderness any longer. They had been there for about 40 years because of murmuring and complaining and disobedience and unbelief. Now they were commanded to move out with renewed dedication and claim that good land–the land that “flowed with milk and honey.” The Lord promised them victory over Jericho and over the whole land. He also promised them His constant presence with them. There was no need to be afraid or dismayed.
This is the picture of the Christian life! As a believer, you are God’s people. He has given you a heavenly inheritance and all kinds of spiritual blessings, NOW. He has given you the milk and honey to enjoy if you will enter into the land HE promised you as part of your Christian living, NOW. If you are murmuring, complaining, and filled with unbelief, you are destined to experience “desert living.”
Are you waiting to get to heaven to claim the land of blessings (Promised Land)?
God wants you to “cross the Jordan” now. He wants you to claim the heavenly blessings HE promised in Christ right NOW. This is what Ephesians 1:3 means when it says,
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly things in Christ;”
Have you claimed all your heavenly spiritual blessings in Christ NOW? The “Promised Land” is yours for the taking. Have you claimed victory and taken your territory? Christians who are afraid to die have not fully claimed their security in Christ of spiritual eternal life of heavenly things NOW. Christians who are worried about their future have not entered into the “promised rest” which is available in Christ NOW. A Christian who is always complaining and discontented has not really experienced the joy and peace of the Kingdom of God NOW.
Satan knows that the frustrated Christian is an ineffective Christian. The devil also knows that the Christian who is enjoying the blessings of heavenly things in Christ now is a threat to him. Therefore, Satan will do anything in his power to keep you defeated and scared and “throwing in the towel.” God has promised you victory and HIS personal presence in Christ NOW. There is no need to fear or doubt.
You are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. God’s divine love entered into you when you confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and trusted in the resurrection power of Christ Jesus living in you NOW. The Promised Land in Christ is HIS Spirit of power, love and a sound mind living in you NOW. The walls of Jericho will fall down as you put into practice the Word of God trusting the Holy Spirit living in you NOW.
