In the Old Testament, God describes the Promised Land as “a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exod. 3:8; Num. 14:8; Deut. 31:20; Ezk. 20:15), which is a beautiful graphical way of highlighting the agricultural richness of the land. God brought His people out of slavery in Egypt to a prosperous land of freedom, blessing and the knowledge of the Lord.
In a particularly dark time in my life, I awoke to this beautiful sight of amazing cirrus clouds painted over the blue morning sky. It was a comforting reminder of the hope and promise that His steadfast love never ceases and his mercies never end – they are new every morning! Great is thy faithfulness!
