Scripture: Genesis 13:17
“Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.”
Earlier in this chapter, we read that the Canaanites and the Perizzites were dwelling in the land. The sinful people of Sodom of Gomorrah were living it up enjoying their hedonistic pleasures. Lot had taken the best part of the countryside for himself.
But none of that mattered. God told Abram to walk around like he owned the place. The land was as good as his because God was giving it to him.
What has God given you? How has he blessed you? Are you walking tall in the confidence that He will do for you what He’s promised?
There’s no reason for us to cower in front of our enemies or hide away from the world when we know what God has done and will do for us. We are children of the King, inheritors of the earth. By God’s own Word, we own the place. Pick your head up and look around.
