Joshua - 1

faith allots a future

Joshua 13:1-7 (JDV)

Joshua 13:1 Joshua had become old, advanced in age, and Yahveh said to him, “You have become old, advanced in age, but a lot of land remains to be possessed.
Joshua 13:2 This is the land that remains: All the districts of the Philistines and the Geshurites:
Joshua 13:3 from the Shihor east of Egypt to the border of Ekron on the north (considered to be Canaanite territory) – the five Philistine rulers of Gaza, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gath, and Ekron, as well as the Avvites
Joshua 13:4 in the south; all the land of the Canaanites, from Arah of the Sidonians to Aphek and as far as the border of the Amorites;
Joshua 13:5 the land of the Gebalites; and all Lebanon east from Baal-gad below Mount Hermon to the entrance of Hamath –
Joshua 13:6 all the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon to Misrephoth-maim, all the Sidonians. I will drive them out in front of the Israelites, only distribute the land as an inheritance for Israel, as I have commanded you.
Joshua 13:7 Therefore, divide this land as an inheritance to the nine tribes and half the tribe of Manasseh.”

faith allots a future

Like their ancestor Abraham, the Israelites had to trust God’s promise to give them the land. Even though they had won many battles and had already possessed much land, there was still much of the land that could be allotted, but was not yet possessed.

Believers in Christ are in a similar condition today. Our king has come, and has drawn us to himself. He has given us many promises, but he calls on us to take those promises by faith. We have yet to inherit our inheritance. Faith allots a future inheritance.

God of our inheritance, we claim the nations for you.
