“I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.” Joshua 1:3
Suppose someone brought you to a large, open field and said to you, “We know this piece of land has gold on it. I will give it to you if you will walk all the way around it.” What would you say? “Gold? You’re kidding! I’m supposed to believe there is gold in the ground?” Would you do nothing or would you believe and take a hike to make the land yours even though you couldn’t see the gold yet?
The gold is like the promises of God, buried all over the pages of the Bible. This is your opportunity to stake your territory, dig for the nuggets and claim God’s promises. To stop short would be to give up gold that was meant for you.
The Bible is our map to a wide land of promise. Explore it and know it so you will know the breadth of riches God has given to you.
Dear Lord, I don’t want to miss out on your promises. Reveal them to me as I learn more about you. Amen.
