Hang onto That Promise

The Lord promised the Israelites He would rescue them out of Egypt and lead them into a land flowing with milk and honey.

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. The Lord promised the Israelites He would rescue them out of Egypt and lead them into a land flowing with milk and honey.  But when God’s people reached the edge of the Promised Land, they sent scouts to scope it out. The scouts returned from exploring the area and they reported not only was it flowing with abundance, it was also filled with giants. Tall giants who were great warriors. That presented a problem: were the Israelites going to believe in what they saw or in what God had promised them? Only two people believed God. And they were the ones blessed enough to enter the Land and see the promise fulfilled. The others missed out. Look, Psalm 18 says that God's promises are true. If you don’t want to miss out on seeing them realized in your life, then start believing. Believe that every promise is yes and Amen in Jesus Christ.
