Milk & Honey

If the Lord delights in us, He will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land that flows with milk and honey. Numbers 14:8

We went into the land to which you sent us, and it does flow with milk and honey! Here is its fruit. Numbers 13:27 ( the spies and giants )

While there are other verses about milk and honey, these stand out.  The first one because of His promise, note the word if, and this is old covenant. they were trying to obey the Ten Commandments when God wanted to reign over them. The Jews cried out for Him to command them, they sent Moses and didn’t want to talk to Him.  Yet, God walked and talked with Adam, Enoch, and Abraham.

Fast forward to Jesus with His new commandment to love, you fulfill all the rest, as He did. Grace and Truth came through Him. Yet, people are still basing their salvation on works. That’s not the way it works! Not then, not now! He has works for us to do, and we should work. But He has plan for us to rest in His love and bring us into that place….not if, or and, or but…but.. perhaps when we allow the sincere milk of the word to  flow like honey into mouths and bellies, and out comes that living water and hunger and thirst for Him.  Yes, He still has a land of milk and honey for us, but only two spies were convinced .

With Thanksgiving behind us and the holiday rush on, not many people are really delving into this promise, I suppose. Yet, He is faithful and there surely are more than two. Rebecca Jones
