Advancing the Kingdom
When God rescued the Israelites from slavery in Egypt, He promised to lead them to the land of Canaan to take possession of it. When the Israelites reached the "Promised Land" they found something they weren't expecting - giants! Just so, we who belong to the Kingdom of God have experienced God's rescue from slavery to freedom, but we too can expect to bump into giants along the way. But God's promise to be with the Israelites and give them victory is a promise He makes to us as well, and we can be assured that if He has led us into the land of giants, it is because He is making ready to advance us into greater authority in the Kingdom!
