This, friends, is what Moses saw when God showed him the Promised Land. It’s extremely hazy, I know, but to the left you’ll notice the Dead Sea, toward the middle lies the Jordan, and directly opposite, the land overflowing with milk and honey.
My first impression was probably the same as yours — how can this be paradise? However , over the next few weeks I discovered that there are many treasures to be found in the Promised Land.
If crossing the wilderness has taught me anything, it is to be uncompromisingly obedient to God, and to fully trust in, and rely on Him to show you the path to take.— C. G
Abraham, Moses, Joshua — they’re some of my favourites from the Old Testament.
How often does it happen that we hold on to the promises, and not the Promise Keeper?
Whatever wilderness you’re in, and whatever challenges lie ahead, I hope you have the courage to step out in obedience to whatever He calls you to.
May you see beyond the haze and the desolation of the wilderness, and may you see the promise hidden in the unknown.
Just keep your eyes open, my love.
“AND MOSES went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is opposite Jericho. And the Lord showed him all the land–from Gilead to Dan, And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah to the western [Mediterranean] sea, And the South (the Negeb) and the plain, that is, the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palm Trees, as far as Zoar. And the Lord said to him, This is the land which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, I will give it to your descendants. I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there.” — Deuteronomy 34:1-4
