I have promised to rescue you from your oppression in Egypt. I will lead you to a land flowing with milk and honey… Exodus 3:17 NLT
God has promised to bring you out of the land of your oppression. He will lead you to a land flowing with milk and honey! I want to encourage you today to press on toward God’s promise. He will not let you down.
Never Give Up on God
This life can be hard at times. It can be monotonous, tragic, sorrowful and difficult. However, I believe 100% that we serve a loving, compassionate and merciful God. So, no matter how long it has been or how desperate your situation, I encourage you to continue to hope in the Lord.
The Israelites were slaves in Egypt for 400 hundred years. Pharaoh ruthlessly worked them in bitter and harsh conditions demanding they build Egyptian cities. He even commanded that all their firstborn sons be thrown into the Nile River. I’m sure this situation seemed hopeless and never-ending to the Israelites. I’m sure they felt like God had turned away and abandoned them.
But, let me assure you that no matter how hopeless you may feel, God is faithful.
Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die, but God will surely take care of you and bring you up from this land to the land which He promised on oath to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob.”
Genesis 50:24 NASB
For generations, God had promised to deliver the Israelites. I’m sure many had lost all hope in His promises. But, God wasn’t finished. He heard the cries of His people and He had blessing on top of blessing to pour out on Israel.
God offers everyone a life flowing with milk and honey. Through a relationship with Jesus, God offers you immeasurable spiritual blessings. As we believe and trust, offering Him our obedience through faith, God is just and true.
Cast Your Burdens on God
Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall. Psalm 55:22 NLT
No matter how long you have waited. No matter how many times you’ve prayed. No matter how many times you feel like you’ve failed to reach the Promised Land. Do not give up on the promises of God! Press on my dear friend! It may be a long road, but God will never let you down.
