Land Promise

In a world that seeks peace and justice, it is easy to overlook the importance of praising God for what He has done. Most understand why it is important to praise God in a general sort of way. However, have wee praised the Lord for His covenants? He made a covenant with Abraham, with Jacob, and with the Israelites; from the seed of David came the Christ. Learning our history is a good thing, but some times good things do not make an impact on us like it ought. David reflected on Israel’s history – going back to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and to the nation. We can reflect on the same, but we can also add to that Jesus Christ (Galatians 4:4; 3:24-27). The covenant to Abraham and to Israel had servants of God zeroing in on the land, but the spiritually minded of God zeroed in on something greater (cf. Hebrews 11:13-16). The land promise was great, but the promise of a Redeemer is greater. He gave Israel the land as an inheritance, but He gives life more abundantly to those who call on the name of the Lord (John 10:7-10).
