Too Good To Be True

Posted: 23 February, 2012 in Ponderings

In the Old Testment, the promised land of the Israelite where God promised His people was going to be “large, prosperous and beautiful cities which they did not build, houses richly stocked with all good things, which they did not produce, draw water from wells they did not dig, and eat from vineyards and olive trees they did not plant”. (Deuteronomy 6:10–11)

But seems too good to be true? Which they probably.thought so. They chose not to believe and rather had to spend 40 hard years, toiling and wondering in the wilderness instead of inheriting the promised land and enjoying God’s blessings.

Today, the same God who brought you out of slavery is giving you the same promise:

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.   2 Corinthians 9:8

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.   Philippians 4:19

“The LORD your God will then make you successful in everything you do. He will give you many children and numerous livestock, and he will cause your fields to produce abundant harvests, for the LORD will again delight in being good to you as he was to your ancestors.   Deuteronomy 30:9

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.   Romans 8:28

So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.   Matthew 7:11

Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.    James 1:17-18


Too good to be true?

Do you believe?
