Today’s reading Joshua 16-19:16
Joshua 18:3 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you?
How long will you sit around and not take what God has given you? That is the question that Joshua asks them. God has brought them into the promised land. He has now conquered their enemies. They only need now to take what is theirs. It has been divided out. They have received their lot! Will they go get it?
We, as well, have been given much in Christ Jesus. We have victory but so many times we do not go get what is ours. We allow Satan to play with our minds. We allow Him to tell us that we can’t have what is ours. We allow Him to tell us that we are undeserving, that God doesn’t really love us, that our lives aren’t that important in His estimation. We listen to lies from the Devil instead of believing truth we find in the Bible.
You have victory. No sin can conquer you. No bad attitude or bitterness can beat you. You have the abundant life now. It is yours. All you have to do is enjoy it.
The question is will you enjoy it or will you just sit there without taking advantage of all that He has done for you?
