Three weeks ago, I started a conversation about land and hearts, and I’m back at it again.

So, let’s begin.

“‘The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are strangers and sojourners with Me. And in all the land of your possession you shall grant redemption of the land. ‘If one of your brethren becomes poor, and has sold some of his possession, and if his redeeming relative comes to redeem it, then he may redeem what his brother sold. Or if the man has no one to redeem it, but he himself becomes able to redeem it, then let him count the years since its sale, and restore the remainder to the man to whom he sold it, that he may return to his possession. But if he is not able to have it restored to himself, then what was sold shall remain in the hand of him/buyer who bought it until the Year of Jubilee; and in the Jubilee it shall be released, and he shall return to his possession.”

-Leviticus 25:23-28 NKJV

The song Redeemed came to mind as this study was getting underway. Identity is critical when marching into an unknown future. I read once a quote from Corrie Ten Boon that said, “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” If we don’t believe He is holding our hand, we will break under the pressure that keeps pulling our hand in another direction. However, I truly believe He is holding our hands, y’all! The promise land seems possible and desirable when we believe HE is walking WITH US. It’s a season of jubilee!

Redeemed by Big Daddy Weave:

I also learned that promises in Greek means to announce what is fitting. So, I’m going to announce that I’ve taken the highlighted words above and given you the Strongs Concordance definition here. This is fun for me because it’s all about buying and selling land.
