An old rabbinical legend says that during the famine in Egypt, Joseph emptied the chaff of his storehouses into the Nile River. The chaff was carried away by the currents into the land all around Egypt. People saw the chaff and began to hope, knowing it meant that there was plenty of wheat in Egypt. They only had to reach the place where the chaff had been thrown. We learn from this story that God doesn’t give us all of heaven while we’re here on earth, but He’ll give us a taste – a taste of heavenly joy, of heavenly love, of peace and wonder. Each taste isn’t an end in itself. It’s a promise of more to come, an encouragement to press on further. God’s Word is full of promises for you to take hold of and go with. So go with strength, power and confidence. Press on to the upper call, because each promise will lead you to greater blessings. If you follow the chaff, you’ll come to the wheat. As you walk into the Promised Land by faith, you’ll enter into the fullness of His blessings.
Today’s Mission – Take hold of a promise from God’s Word today and pursue it until you find a new blessing from Heaven.
