There is a little verse in Psalm 105 where the Holy Spirit goes back a few thousand years to tell us about “when” God promised something at an unpromising time.
11 Saying, “ To you I will give the land of Canaan
As the portion of your inheritance,”
12 When they were only a few men in number,
Very few, and strangers in it
This little portion of Scripture is pretty amazing and pretty typical of God. He promises stuff when it seems impossible
GOD SAID (to Abraham)….I WILL GIVE YOU THE LAND OF CANAAN
HIS POSITION….only a few people….in fact ,very few it says….and to add insult to injury, they are strangers in the land. Very unpromising resources to make this kind of promise.
I will give you the land is insane.
