THE GOOD OF THE LAND – Pastor Chris
Thursday, April 12, 2018
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land (Isaiah 1:19).
Psalm 33:5 says, “…the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.” This means that it doesn’t matter where you live; right there where you are, there’s so much of God’s goodness available for you and to you. Sadly, not many are enjoying the good of the land. The reason is simple: they’re not walking in the light of God’s Word. Many look to the government or society for a better life, but the Scripture doesn’t say you shall eat the good provided by the government.
It makes no difference which government is in office or the economic status of your country; there’s good for you in the land where you are; there’s so much for you to enjoy. God owns the land, and He’s telling you there’s good in the land. All you have to do is live by His Word. He said, “If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land” (Isaiah 1:19).
1 Peter 1:14-15: “As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation.” As a new creation in Christ, God doesn’t see you as disobedient; He doesn’t call you to obedience; rather, He calls you to walk in the doctrine of Christ which you’ve obeyed: “…yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered” (Romans 6:17 NKJV).
We’re doers of the Word. We live the Word. Therefore, we eat the good of the land; we enjoy our inheritance through the Word. Glory to God!
I’m an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ; the world belongs to me! The cattle upon a thousand hills are mine, likewise the gold and the silver. Therefore, every good thing is accessible to me. The Lord is my shepherd; I lack nothing. Glory to God!
