by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Enjoy The Good Land
Just as God called the promised land “a land that flows with milk and honey” so the land of motherhood we live in is a good land. It’s the best land God has for you. In Jeremiah 2:7 (NASB) God says, “I brought you into the fruitful land to eat its fruit and its good things. But you came and defiled my land.” Another translation calls it “a garden land.”
God intends your land of wifehood and motherhood to be a fruitful land and a good land. There are so many wonderful blessings to possess. Embrace the blessings of your land. Live in the goodness of your land. It’s a land of preservation, security, joy, and fruitfulness.
Isn’t it sad that many despise the land of motherhood? They leave the land to find other lands, but in doing this, they leave behind the land where God wants to bless them. They move out of the domain where God has placed them. His blessings are IN the land, not out of the land.
