“And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: 15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” (Genesis 13:14-15).
No instinct can be put in you by the Holy Ghost but that He purposes to fulfil. Let your faith then rise and soar away and claim all the land you can discover. Everything that you are seeing belongs to you. Everything that the Father has belongs to you. You are heirs and joint-heirs with the Father.
All you can apprehend in the vision of faith is your own. Look as far as you can, for it is all yours. All that you long to be as a Christian, all that you long to do for God, are within the possibilities of faith. Then come, still closer, and with your Bible before you, and your soul open to all the influences of the Spirit, let your whole being receive the baptism of His presence; and as He opens your understanding to see all His fulness, believe He has it all for you. Accept for yourself all the promises of His word, all the desires He awakens within you, all the possibilities of what you may be as a follower of Jesus. All the land you see is given to you.
The actual provisions of His grace come from the inner vision. He who puts the instinct in the bosom of yonder bird to cross the continent in search of summer sunshine in the Southern clime is too good to deceive it, and just as surely as He has put the instinct in its breast, so has He also put the balmy breezes and the vernal sunshine yonder to meet it when it arrives.
He who breathes into our hearts the heavenly hope, will not deceive or fail us when we press forward to its realization. I was told that He never fails and I am a witness to this promise and I believe that you have a testimony to tis witness also. We often sing the song “He never fails me yet.” That is true, He proved Himself to the Hebrew children in the fiery furnace, He did it to Daniel in the Lion’s den, He did it to Moses at the brink of the Red sea and to Joshua on the bank of Jordan. He did it to the Church on the day of Pentecost and later to Saul on the road to Damascus. Oh, Hallelujah He can do the same for us today if we can only believe and accept it.
“And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the Passover.” (Luke 22:13). You just have to hear the voice of the Lord and take Him at His word. That is all you have to hear, His word and act on it and I guarantee you that you are going to receive the promise. Oh, brethren He never fails, but will bring all His word to pass.
