Claiming God’s Promises

God made an eternal promise to Abraham  when He promised to give him the land of Israel (Gen. 13:15)  but Abraham had to possess the promise with action on his part.  He was instructed to ‘walk the land,’ for the promise of ‘wherever you place your feet’ to be activated.  He had to claim the ground he had been promised.
