Another Broken Promise

According to Genesis, God promised Abraham that his descendants would be a mighty and powerful people who would be in permanent possession of the land he (God) gave them. Neither happened. The Israelites have never ruled all of the territory that God promised them, except for a short time under David and Solomon (this is assuming either existed outside the pages of the bible). So which is it; the God of the bible is incapable (powerless) of keeping his promise OR the promise itself never occurred because the bible is a work of fiction? Either way, isn’t it clear that the Israelites were not God’s chosen people?
