Exodus 34:24 (KJV)
For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the LORD thy God thrice in the year.
God’s care and forethought of his people are overwhelming. Consider: this is nearly forty years previous to possessing the Promised Land. God was here instructing them about a life they did not know but that He assured them would one day be theirs. He set periods when they were to come aside from regular life for dedication to the Lord. God made provision for their personal property during those things through three things:
- He would cast out those nations who could threaten their property.
- He would rid them of enemies.
- He would enlarge their borders
By giving them a larger land, increasing the distance between them and a potential enemy, and strengthening their defenses against the enemies.
- He would remove from others the desire for their land
- Friends would not want to take it.
- Friends would help defend it, and
- God would put it from the enemy’s minds
God said all that would happen when they appeared before the Lord three times yearly.
Israel today sees little of these promises.
It is, in my opinion, because God sees little of them.
