Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew (Deut. 33:28).
God gave His chosen people, the Jews, a good land. He watered it with rain and dew from heaven.
When they obeyed, they ate of the fatness of the earth. Crops grew in abundance, as God sent the sun, the rain, and the dew.
If they disobeyed, God withheld the dew. When they confessed their sin with a desire to turn away from it, God forgave them and blessed them. God wants us not to be sorry because we got caught but for our sin. This is true repentance—a chance of attitude toward our sin. When the Jews repented, they again enjoyed the dew from heaven.
God keeps all His promises. He made some specifically for the Jews. He also gave many promises to believers. If we trust in Him, we can claim these promises. We also will experience dewdrops from Heaven.
He promises to supply our needs when we seek the Lord first. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matt. 6:33). In the context He is speaking of basic needs like food and clothing.
In Philippians 4:6-7 God says, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” He promises us the “peace of God” when we pray about all our anxieties.
God gave us His promises to enable us to become partakers of His divine nature. “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Pet. 1:4). As we claim these promises, we can escape the corruption of this world.
When you have a problem, search for God’s answer in the Word of God. As you claim His promises, He will give you the victory.
For believers His most wonderful promises is the promise of Heaven where He prepares a place for all true believers. They will live with Him for all eternity. They have an anchor, a hope, both sure and steadfast. One day all of us who trust in Jesus will be with Him. Oh, glory, what a refreshing dew!
