God brought the children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage through the wilderness and into their Promised Land. The Promised Land was also known as the land flowing with milk and honey (Exodus 3:17). Milk and honey was not literal but it represented the infinite possibilities of the land. The fertility of the land would be like milk and the sweetness of the land would be like honey. Let us open our hearts and minds to divine unlimited ideas.
God led the Hebrew people into their Promised Land. During the day, they followed the pillar of cloud and at night they followed the pillar of fire (Exodus 13-21-22). God’s leadership was not dependent on the temporal conditions of day or night. The pillar of cloud represents the spiritual understanding and bright clarity that we have during the daylight. The pillar of fire represents the Holy Spirit that leads us in the night season burning up any thought, word or behavior that stands between us and our Promised Land. If we follow the direction of the Holy Spirit beyond any external condition, we too will be led right into our Promised Land.
Today, our Promised Land is not a physical place but it is a place in consciousness of health, prosperity and harmony in all relationships. God is a Promise Keeper. All the promises of God in Christ are yes and amen (2 Corinthians 1:20). What has God promised you?
