“So it shall be, when the Lord your God brings you into the land of which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build, houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, hewn-out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant.”
This is the manner of God’s kingdom and a demonstration of His gracious provision. What He did for Israel in giving them Canaan is a picture of a far better inheritance for those who believe to the end and enter through the narrow gate. We are going to receive a prepared kingdom; cities which we did not build, an everlasting well which we did not dig, a house full of mansions and good things and a vineyard which we did not plant. The difference is that then there will be no enemies and we will not leave…ever. We are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken. Hold on to the Rock.
