The Land the Lord Gave Israel

Numbers 34:1-12 details the border of the land that the Lord gave Israel. Why did He give them that land? Why not give them the whole Middle East? Why not give them Europe, or Asia, or North America?
The Lord had His reasons for giving them the land that He gave, whether they appear arbitrary to us or not, He decided to give them that little piece of land and it fulfilled His purposes for Israel in the short term and it fulfilled His purposes for the world in the long term.
Why did the Lord give you the family members you have? Why did He give you the job where you work? Why did He place you in the neighborhood where you live?
Again, He had His purposes and we make life better for ourselves, if we seek His purposes in all these and other things, rather than wishing we had things differently.
