Genesis 35:12 – 12 “The land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, I will give it to you, And I will give the land to your descendants after you.”
I often talk to people that are not willing to commit their lives to Jesus because they are afraid that they will have to give too much up to be a Christian. They are having too much fun to stop and become boring. Many people would respond to these individuals by telling them of all of the things they receive when they allow Jesus into their hearts (I agree with those answers). I, however, like to focus on the things that they will have to give up – loneliness, despair, pain, addictions, strongholds, etc.
In today’s scripture, Jacob was told, “And I will give the land to your descendants after you.” By giving up their false gods, God blessed Jacob (Israel) with the land of his descendants. God does not ask us to give up the good things in our lives, He is asking us to give up those things that are preventing us from receiving His full blessing.
I pray for blessing today for you on your Journey!
