Significant Places: The Promise Land
Genesis 26:3-4

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“Sojourn in this land and I will be with you and bless you, for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will establish the oath which I swore to your father Abraham . . . and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 26:3-4 NASB

God promised Abraham a land for his descendants, a land of rest, a land flowing with milk and honey. In this land God would bless and provide for those who obey His commands, who follow His Word. Through this promise all the nations will be blessed. This promise is fulfilled for us in a faith relationship with the Savior, being forgiven of sin, living in His righteousness with an inheritance with Him for eternity.

Lord Jesus, thank You for the blessings of salvation, peace, rest, and eternal life I have received through faith in You.
