Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Much Land Yet To Be Possessed”
Text: Joshua 13:1
“Now Joshua was old, advanced in years. And the LORD said to him: “You are old, advanced in years, and there remains very much land yet to be possessed.”
“Much Land Yet To Be Possessed” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God has Conquered and Destroyed all the kings and armies of Canaan, and Given All the Land of Canaan to Israel as a nation as their Inheritance. In this second phase of the war Israel must now Possess what she has been Given as a tribe. Israel must do this as a tribe by enforcing the “national victory” within the borders of the Land of their inheritance.
She has possessed some but not all of her inheritance as a tribe. Joshua is now old and advanced in years, about 100 years old, and God tells him that “there remains very much land yet to be possessed.” It’s time for the individual tribes to possess their inheritance of Land the way the nation conquered all the kings of these nations; by Obedience, Faith, and Trust in God Alone!
I felt God show me that what the Land of Inheritance was for Israel is a type of our Inheritance of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.”(Col.2:9-10)
Jesus Christ Is The Warrior’s Inheritance! Ooooh Rah!
Jesus has Conquered and neutered all the kings of spiritual wickedness and their armies, by His Obedient and Surrendered Life on the Cross and Resurrection from the grave!
Now, He has given His Warriors All Power and Authority to Conquer and Destroy any and all spiritual enemies (our old nature), that threaten our Inheritance of Jesus.
To be clear, sin compromises our Inheritance and therefore must be destroyed with confession and repentance. Oooh Rah!
Your and I have “possessed” some of Jesus; but “..there remains very much of Jesus yet to be possessed!”
We cannot be satisfied with a partial possession of our Lord, We Must Pursue Possession Of ALL Of Him!
And that’s what we do, every day; meeting with Him and eating with Him, talking and listening to Him through His Word, and Driving Out All Spiritual enemies of sin from our life.
Even in our old age we will continue to Discover there is much of Jesus yet to be possessed……
This is the thrill of Knowing our Commander and King Jesus Christ - We want MORE of Him, and We Possess More of Him as we Walk in Love, Obedience and Trust In Him. We’re Becoming One In Him as a growing Branch in The True Vine (John 15:1-8). Jesus as our High Priest is Praying for you and I to be one in Him as He is in the Father! (John 17:21) You and I are Possessing More and More of Him by our Faithful and Obedient Walk with Him every day!
On this earth there will Always remain very much of Jesus to possess. The Thrill of Possessing More of Jesus is what Drives you and I in Our Pursuit of His Heart! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
