Are you fully trusting in God’s Word? The day-in, day-out, sunshine-and-storm kind of trusting? Whose voice do you heed?
Reaching our own Promise Land life requires an ongoing trust in God’s Word. Wilderness people trust Scripture just enough to escape Egypt. Canaan dwellers, on the other hand, make the Bible their go-to book for life. As God told Joshua, “Meditate in it day and night” (Joshua 1:8). The image is one of a person reciting, rehearsing, reconsidering God’s Word over and over again.
Canaan is loud with enemy voices. The Devil megaphones doubt and death into our ears. Take heed to the voice you heed. Scripture says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another” (Colossians 3:16).
