“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 hardships with perseverance 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 have Satan as 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 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, after forty years in the wilderness, was determined to get all his personal inheritance in spite his age and major oppositions. He was a man of faith and faithfulness. What he pursued, he obtained with God’s help.
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. Whatever God has promised you is already waiting for you. Don’t give up and don’t give in until you receive your blessing.
My God is faithful and powerful to fulfill all His promises to me.
