Seeing a future victory

Re: Verse reading–Deuteronomy 34 (day six)
It must have been like an IMAX.  A brilliant vision of the Holy Land.  “The Lord showed him ALL the land. . .and ALL the land of Judah as far as the western sea.” (v 1-2)  Physically impossible.  Even from a mountain top.  It was a spiritual, supernatural vision.  Moses’ sin caused him to not enter the land, but the kindness of God allowed him to SEE it and feel satisfied that his life’s work would be completed.  Often God’s way.  Most of us run only a short lap of a much longer race (think relay race and a baton pass at some point).  We receive by faith the eventual victory that our sacrifices contribute to.  “All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance. . .God is not ashamed to be called their God.”  (Hebrews 11:13, 16)  Is your life contributing to a glorious future victory?
