“So on that day Moses swore to me, ‘The land on which your feet have walked will be your inheritance and that of your children forever, because you have followed the Lord my God wholeheartedly.’” Joshua 14:9.
If you endure, stick it out, and don’t give up God will come through with every promise that he has made. Endurance is a necessary character to victorious living. There are some things in life where you have no choice. You did not choose to be born in a corrupt world. You did not choose to create an enemy that the Bible describes as having only one agenda, ‘to steal, kill and to destroy’. You did not choose at times to be wounded or to be disappointed. But one thing you can choose – to live a lifestyle of faith and victory.
The children of Israel were promised by God: land, prosperity, and great significance in the affairs of humanity. Caleb at eighty years old, in spite of being forty years in the wilderness, was determined to get all his personal inheritance in spite of his age, major oppositions and the giants that were in occupation of his land. He was a man of faith and faithfulness. What he pursued, he obtained.
By faith and guts he put his feet on his promise; by prayer and passion he remained focused; by endurance and determination he overcame all obstacles to his rightful inheritance. Whatever God has promised you is already waiting for you. Don’t give up and don’t give in until you receive your blessing.
The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made. Psalm 145:13
