Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Joshua 18 & 19)
“Our Heavenly Inheritance”
Text: Joshua 19:51
“These were the inheritances which Eleazar the priest, Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel divided as an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. So they made an end of dividing the country.
“Our Heavenly Inheritance,” is on the menu for Breakfast this morning. God had an earthly inheritance for Israel, a Promised Land of Rest for them, as an individual, a tribe, and as a nation; but many of them did not enter into this Promised Land of rest because of unbelief.
“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.” (Heb.3:18-19).
Our Commander and King has a Heavenly Inheritance Already Prepared for His Warriors also.
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.
In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:1-3). Again, Paul reminds us that:
“In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.” (Eph.1:11-12).
For Joshua and Israel to receive their inheritance they had to “possess it!” They possessed it by Faith believing God had given them this land of rest - and then putting this Faith into action, Enforcing God’s Will to Give them this land by destroying the enemies of God who were occupying this land.
That’s what we do also as Warriors of the Kingdom. Our inheritance is a Heavenly Inheritance not an earthly inheritance that fades away. Our Heavenly Inheritance of Righteousness, Peace, and Joy in the Holy Spirit endures forever.(Rom.14:17)
We “possess” our Heavenly Inheritance by Faith, resting in the assurance that “it is waiting for us to arrive,” at any time!
“Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;
but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,
while it is said:
“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”(Heb.3:12-15).
Through all the stuff of life we pass through let us “hold the beginning of our confidence Stedfast to the end. Our Heavenly Inheritance is up ahead of us, waiting for us to arrive! Oooooh Rah!
