trying and trusting

Joshua 19:24-31 (JDV)

Joshua 19:24 The fifth lot came out for the tribe of Asher’s descendants by their clans.
Joshua 19:25 Their boundary included Helkath, Hali, Beten, Achshaph,
Joshua 19:26 Allammelech, Amad, and Mishal and reached westward to Carmel and Shihor-libnath.
Joshua 19:27 It turned eastward to Beth-dagon, reached Zebulun and Iphtah-el Valley, north toward Beth-emek and Neiel, and went north to Cabul,
Joshua 19:28 Ebron, Rehob, Hammon, and Kanah, as far as greater Sidon.
Joshua 19:29 The boundary then turned to Ramah as far as the fortified city of Tyre; it turned back to Hosah and ended at the Mediterranean Sea, including Mahalab, Achzib,
Joshua 19:30 Ummah, Aphek, and Rehob – twenty-two cities, with their settlements.
Joshua 19:31 This was the inheritance of the tribe of Asher’s descendants by their clans, these cities with their settlements.

trying and trusting

Verse 29 mentions a fortified city as one of the boundaries of Asher’s allotment. It served as a limit for them. They could spread out only this far.

So it is for us. No matter how successful we may be in following the commands of Christ and bringing people into his kingdom, there will always be limits. We cannot accomplish everything. We have to try to do all we can do, and trust God.

Lord, show us what to try, and when to trust.
