Joshua - 1

land you did not labor for

Joshua 24:11-13 (JDV)

Joshua 24:11 ” ‘You then crossed the Jordan and came to Jericho. Jericho’s citizens – as well as the Amorites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hethites, Girgashites, Hivites, and Jebusites – did battle with you, but I handed them over to you.
Joshua 24:12 I sent hornets ahead of you, and they drove out the two Amorite kings before you. It was not by your sword or bow.
Joshua 24:13 I gave you a land you did not labor for, and cities you did not build, though you live in them; you are eating from vineyards and olive groves you did not plant.’

land you did not labor for

What Joshua said to his people about the promised land is also true about our inheritance. We gain our inheritance by faith in the God who has gone before us and will drive out evil. The coming kingdom we will inherit is fought for by us in this life, but in the end, we will discover that God had been fighting for us the whole time, driving out Satan’s kings, and making it possible for us to inherit the land.

Lord, thank you for giving us the land you promised.
