Exodus 3:8. I have come down to deliver them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up from that land to a land that is both good and spacious, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the region of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites.

Before we meet God through His Son, Jesus, we dwell in Egypt. This is a land of slavery to sin. When we meet God we begin our journey in the wilderness of sanctification. We are headed for Canaan, the promised land. It is a land rich in the blessings of God. The Hebrews struggled in the wilderness. They wanted God’s blessings but did not want to be obedient to His commands. Because of their continual disobedience they wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. When they did approach the promised land they doubted it was really for them. (Read the story for yourself in Exodus). We are like those Hebrews. We wander around in our wilderness in and out of obedience to God. Many don’t know of a promised land. Some don’t think it’s for them. This promised land is where we walk daily with our God. When we learn to open ourselves up to the power of God’s Holy Spirit within us we receive His power to walk on through the wilderness and take possession of the promised land. Our question is which land are we in, Egypt, the wildness or the land of promise?
