In Deuteronomy 26:1-11, we see a people on the verge of a long promised gift from God. A land of their own. A long awaited gift. Are you waiting for the promises of God? Are you waiting to get from God before you can respond to Him? The promise of God is that He gives, and He give on His own timeline in His own ways and part of our faith is recognizing the ways He has given, but that He will give. Look at these verses from this passage...
Verse 1 - “Lord your God is giving you (the Land) for an inheritance”
Verse 2 - “harvest from your land that the Lord your God is giving you”
Verse 3 - “go to the place that the Lord your God will choose”
Verse 7 - “the Lord heard our voice and saw our affliction”
Verse 8 - “And the Lord brought us out of Egypt
Verse 9 - “And he brought us into this place and gave us this land”
Verse 10 - “the first of the fruit of the ground, which you, O Lord, have given me”
Verse 11 - “And you shall rejoice in all the good that the Lord your God has given to you”
The Lord gives, and what does He ask of us, to respond. He asks us to remember. What are the ways you are thankful to the giver of Life today? Share with each other those good gifts that God has given you.
