The Promised Land Life - July 27, 2016

The promised land life isn’t a physical territory; it’s a spiritual reality. It’s not real estate, but a real state of the mind and heart. Scripture calls it a life in which “we are more than conquerors through Christ who loved us” (Romans 8:37).

Paul describes it as a life in which “we do not lose heart” (2 Corinthians 4:16).  A life in which we are “exceedingly joyful in all our tribulations” (2 Corinthians 7:4).  In God’s plan, in God’s promised land, we win more often than we lose; forgive as quickly as we’re offended; and give as abundantly as we receive. We may stumble, but we do not collapse. We may struggle, but we defy despair. We boast only in Christ, trust only in God, lean wholly on his power. We enjoy abundant fruit and increasing faith. We live the promised land life!
