One of the most famous stories in the Bible has to do with inheritance. The Hebrews had just been delivered from Egyptian captivity. God led them and Moses to the edge of the promised land and made this offer. “Send some men to explore the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelites. From each ancestral tribe send one of its leaders” (Numbers 13:1-2).
God didn’t tell the Israelites to conquer, invade, or secure the land. No, he told them he was giving it to them. And their choice was clear: promises or circumstances? The circumstances said, “No way. Stay out. There are giants in the land!” But God’s promise said, “The land is yours. The victory is yours. Take it!”
Circumstances say, cower to your fears. Your inheritance says otherwise: you are a child of the King. And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable!
