43 So the Lord gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they took possession of it and dwelt in it.
44 The Lord gave them rest all around, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers. And not a man of all their enemies stood against them; the Lord delivered all their enemies into their hand.
45 Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.”
Today’s Inspiration: Today God is assuring His people that they will take possession of what had been promised and His promises will not fail but be brought to pass. He will give you rest. Joshua 21:43-45. Rest is something we find difficult as we are of the flesh and every man on earth failed to rest, having always the desire to pursue material wealth until they are struck down with critical disease. God always wants us to lay down our heavy burdens and rest in Him. Matthew 11:28-30.
We need to understand that God blessed us with a purpose in mind – blessing us that we might be a blessing to others so that the nations will get to know of His mighty works through you. We are to be good stewards of His high calling and shares of His blessings. Psalm 67:1-2.
God wants you to flourish like the grass of the earth not only in material gain but in Good health like a green olive tree that can withstand even in the harshest environment or circumstance where the roots are deeply embedded in the ground. Psalm 72:6.
Holiness birthed out of a broken and contrite spirit – one that is totally submitted to God, not arrogant or proud but humble and mouldable in God’s hand.
Have a blessed week!
