Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Joshua 18 & 19)
“God Conquered So We Could Possess”
Text: Joshua 18:3
“Then Joshua said to the children of Israel: “How long will you neglect to go and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers has given you?”
This Principle that “God Conquered So We Could Possess” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God conquered the Canaanite kings and their armies, so that Israel could possess the land God promised to give them for an inheritance. It has been over a year since God conquered these kings and the tribes of Israel have “neglected” to possess their portion for of this land. Why have they neglected to possess their land?
I believe the answer is they did not value as Precious God’s Promised Land, as Joshua and Caleb did. Israel loved their Comfort More than they loved God’s Promised Land.” War is not comfortable, but peace at any cost is preferable….
Joshua asks them the question “how long will you neglect to go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers Has Given You?
God Conquered but Israel Neglected To Possess what God had given them.
Possessing the land was not an option it was a Command! In effect, Israel must take out their checkbook of Faith, and write the check of Faith, sign it with their Obedience; give it to God, and He Will Cash It with His Presence and Power Conquering any and all opposition! God’s Ready to do His Part, He’s waiting for Israel to Write the Check, Sign It, and give it to God! Oooooh Rah!
Our Commander Jesus Christ has conquered all our spiritual enemies:
“Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”(Col.2:15). He IS our Inheritance. He has already done His Part - He Conquered so you and I could Possess Him, and enter into His Rest!
“And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey?
So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.”
“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.”
Write the Check Warrior! Sign it with your Obedience, and give it to God; and the passion and Fire of Holy Spirit will fuel your Passion to Pursue and Possess All of Jesus; Resting in Him and His Works Alone…
As He Possess you and I, we too must Possess All of Him and Rest in Him Alone!
He Conquered So We Could Possess All of Him and Rest in Him Alone! Oooooh Rah!
