The promised land…
Ok, so Sunday got me thinking on a lot of issues. We had a wedding at our church, and there were a number of things which our pastor mentioned during the sermon that really stuck with me.
One point he highlighted is that marriage can be compared to a promised land.
Wow… I just never saw it that way.
3 Trust in the LORD and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
7 Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when men succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Wow… those verses just says it all. The focus of Sunday’s sermon was being faithful to that which God has called you to, there where He’s placed you.
Are we faithful? Can God look down at us and say, “I can’t wait till Salomé reaches the promised land!” or will He perhaps have wipe away a tear or two at doubtful thought whether you’ll make it or not?
