His Divine Power Grants Us Possession Of The Promises
The Israelites’ time in the wilderness was a consequence of their unbelief. In this Feast of Tabernacles message, we open our hearts to the lesson the Lord wants to impart to us out of their experience.
God exercised great power when He delivered the Israelites from Egypt, not only to judge Egypt, but also to impress upon His people His great strength and authority. However, when the Israelites were ready to enter the promised land, it was occupied by nations greater and stronger than they were (Deuteronomy 7:1). God wanted them to stand in awe and watch Him move with His power and might to rid the promised land of the oppressors and give the Israelites what He had promised them, but their response was to shrink back in fear and unbelief.
Their story shows us a pattern. Whenever God gives a promise, it takes His power and His authority to fulfill it. Just as God’s promise and covenant to Israel are eternal and forever, so are His promises to us. We are positioned to enter into these promises, but they are oppressed and restrained by the powers of darkness. We must believe that He is strong and capable enough to fulfill what He has promised (II Peter 1:3-4).
In this time of Sukkot, we cry out to You Lord to avenge us speedily and remove the spirits that are sitting as a restraint on the promises that belong to us as our heritage.
