Old Testament In a Year: March 17 – Numbers 17, 18, 19

Numbers 17, 18, 19
Focus Verse: And the Lord said to Aaron, “You shall have no inheritance in their land, neither shall you have any portion among them. I am your portion and your inheritance among the people of Israel. – Numbers 18:20

As God’s chosen people, Israel was to be set apart from other nations; and as God’s chosen tribe, Levi was to be set apart from the other tribes.

As God’s chosen child, you are to be set apart from the things of the world. You are chosen, royal, and holy – God’s very own possession. Do not conform to the present, but rather be transformed by God in preparation for the future. Your inheritance and your portion cannot be found on Earth. You are just a pilgrim here. Your inheritance and your portion is in Heaven, and it is greater than anything the world can offer. Your inheritance and your portion is God Himself – in life, at death, and throughout eternity.

He is no small portion either, but a large and abundant one. Do you feel weak? Ask God to give you His portion of strength. Are you lonely? Ask God to give you His portion of friendship. Are you experiencing tragedy? Ask God to give you His portion of comfort. Whatever it is you need, ask God to give you His portion of it. Then you will be full, never wanting, and completely satisfied.
