FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY!
“And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety” Leviticus 25:18-19.
IT IS A LIFE-GIVING LAND (Deuteronomy 30:15-20)
God spoke to the children of Israel through Moses before they went into the land and said to them, “I call upon heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live… that thou mayest dwell in the land” Deuteronomy 30:19-20.
The land of our family life where we live each day should be a land of life. All around us is a society of death. We are indoctrinated by a feminist and humanist agenda to choose death rather than life. The majority have joined the enemy’s plan that hates life and seeks to eradicate it any way possible. They often choose abortion, but more frequently they choose to eliminate life before it is conceived. This has become the normal practice in our society. But this lifestyle does not belong to God’s land. His land is a land of life. God loves life. He is the author of life. He looks for life to come from godly couples.
Isn’t it amazing that what is strange and foreign to the kingdom of God has now become normal? What a dichotomy! Even in Christendom families who have more than two or three children are looked upon as strange! Truth has become so twisted that what is Biblical is now foreign! And we are so entrenched in this deception that we don’t even recognize it!
Isaiah 29:16 NASB says, “You turn things around. Shall the potter be considered as equal with the clay, that what is made would say to its maker, ‘He did not make me, or what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘He has no understanding’?” The KJB says, “You turn things upside down”!
Micah 3:9 NASB says they “twist everything that is straight.” Read also Psalm 144: 11-12; Isaiah 45:9-10; 64:8 and Romans 9:19-21.
God promises that He will bless us in the land when we choose life (Deuteronomy 30:16). When we choose life, we choose health.*
IT IS A SAFE LAND (Ezekiel 28:26)
When we enter into this land we find it is a land of safety.** It’s a place where we can dwell confidently. It is safe from deception. The context of 1 Timothy 14-15 is that we will be saved from deception as we embrace our maternal duties. When a motherleaves her children to compete with man in the career world, she enters into a realm where she is not only vulnerable to the enemy, but where she can subtly be led into deception, often without realizing it.It is not the sphere that God planned for her. Of course, a mother can help her home financially through the gifts and talents God has given her. Creating a business in her home is a place where she can work confidently.
God also wants us to mother with confidence, knowing that this is the sphere God has chosen for us. We are not doing an inferior work but the most powerful career in the nation as we train children who will determine the course of the nation.
IT IS A LAND OF PROVISION (Deuteronomy 28:11; 30:9)
Deuteronomy 8:9 calls it “A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it.” Although we covet a lot more than we require, God will always give us what we need. I am often reminded of the Israelites in the desert. God reminded them that during that time “they lacked nothing” Deuteronomy 2:7 and Nehemiah 9:21). Nothing! And yet they lived in temporary tents! How would you like that? They had no modern conveniences such as we have today. How would you like that? They couldn’t pop down to the corner store to grab some milk and forgotten items when they ran out! How would you like that? And yet God said they lacked nothing! He provided them daily manna and their shoes miraculously never wore out! Many times we can’t understand how we survive either. God supplies beyond our income. But that’s how God does it. He is a miraculous God and we will prove Him continually as we trust in Him. ***

“Father, I thank you such much for this wonderful land to which you have called me. Help me to acknowledge and rejoice in all the blessings of this land. Amen.”
I am living in a land of life and provision.
