Joshua 16, 17, 18
Focus Verse: So Joshua said to the people of Israel, “How long will you put off going in to take possession of the land, which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you?” – Joshua 18:3
God gave the Israelites the promised land. They just had to go in and take possession of it. Joshua chided them for taking such a long time to claim what was already theirs.
Are you doing the same? God has given you a claim to Heaven. Are you slow in taking possession of it by delaying in trusting Christ as Savior? God has offered you eternal rest? Are you taking a long time to enter it?
Do not stand in darkness when light is available to you. Do not live in a state of sadness, anxiety, and unbelief when joy, peace, and faith is given to you. Take possession of what is yours.
