One of the basic truths of living the Christian life is God inviting us to possess and continue to live in the Promised Land. As the Israelites learned after they crossed the Red Sea was not guaranteed since they had a choice to make of following him or refusing to go. The initial group of over 2 million inhabitants refused to go and wandered around for 40 years and never experienced any of God’s promises. the next generation accepted the invitation and did go and live fully in the promised land. This retreat helps us understand the conditions of God making these promises, are willingness to follow’s imitation, and then him giving us the power to be obedient to experience the promises – and to be a way of life throughout our life; where we will experience grand promises all the time.
