The Promised Land
Do you live with hope today?
You have so much reason to hope because your future is something that no one can take away from you.
You have eternal life and paradise in heaven in your future. It is a real promised land, much greater than the earthly promised land given to the people of Israel.
When God rescued His people from the slavery and oppression of the Egyptians, He took them on a journey across the Red Sea, through the wilderness, and finally on into the promised land. God promised to take them to “a good and spacious land, to a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exodus 3:8).
We learn from Paul that “these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come” (1 Corinthians 10:11).
And we do see that there is a much greater promised land waiting for us. All you have to do is go to the end of Revelation and you will discover “the rest of the story.”
Here is just a small portion of all we have to look forward to —
You have a magnificent hope, dear friend. And you can enjoy a glimpse of heaven even now as you walk with Christ, finding your life in Him, moment by moment each day.
Paul encourages us in this life with Christ while we live our life on earth. He writes —
Oh what a magnificent hope you have. Gilbert Beeken wrote, “Other men see only a hopeless end, but the Christian rejoices in an endless hope.” Don’t you love those words. We have an endless hope that is cause for rejoicing until the day we step into heaven.
So, dear friend, may you set your sights on your promised land in heaven today. And may you rejoice in an endless hope. God bless you.
