From the promise in Numbers 14 about the promised land, 40 years elapsed. Numbers chapter 14 to 36 describes the 40 year journey. God kept His word about the generation that would not enter Canaan. In Deuteronomy 1:1-8, we see the Israelites just about to enter into their inheritance. What has the Lord spoken concerning you? Is it taking longer than you expected to manifest? He shall surely do it. Just play your part.
