Joshua 17:1 – end
The tribe of Joseph – Ephraim and Manasseh got two slot- inheritance from the Lord unlike the remaining tribes of Israel.
They however, complained to Joshua that they need more land. Joshua asked them to clear more land in the forest as many as they want. In verse 17 & 18 Joshua said ” You are numerous and very powerful. You will have not only one allotment but the forested hill country as well. Clear it, and its farthest limits will be yours; though the Canaanites have chariots fitted with iron and though they are strong, you can drive them out.”
Josephs descendants, though already favored requested for more and Joshua’s answer is insightful and encouraging. Joshua basically said unlimited access to land is available – unlimited access to whatever you are craving for, as long as its in line with the Word of God and heaven’s plan for you. Unlimited provision is available, you just need courage to access it regardless of how the provision is packaged. You must be hungry and thirsty enough to embark on this daunting exposition – laying hold of destiny.
There is sweetness – juicy thirst quencher in coconut by the beach side but it has to be cracked open. To possess a land or anything whatsoever that is needful for life and godliness then, there is a need to know how to fight strategically to uproot every obstacle and threat to God’s plan and purpose for your life.
You can uproot every enemy of progress within and without by the help of the Holy Spirit already at work within you. Within? Why not without? You have to and must be born again, accept the Lord Jesus as your Lord and Savior in order to have access to the Holy Spirit. Will you invite Jesus into your heart now friends?. The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth, strengthen and encourage you as you step out in faith to possess your possession.
Lord God Almighty, help us to trust you to work everything out for our good as we strategically and faithfully step toward, forward, and into your plan and purpose for our lifes in Jesus mighty name. Amen
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
To the youth, singles, divorced, separated and married, you are a spirit. Your spirit is neither male nor female. You were placed in a body at birth and God knows all about you, he has a plan for your life.
Do you know what your spirit man is to do on earth? Is your worth, the essence of your being in your husband, wife, children, title and so on? Some women do not have any identity except as Mrs something.
You have to be who God created you to be with or without a wife/hubby. Are your steps towards being who God created you to be? Are you on the journey towards the fulfillment of God’s plan for your life? Do you even know the purpose for your life?
Is God first in your heart? Seek ye first the kingdom of God and every other thing shall be added. Find yourself first in the will of God so you can really be the helpmate or lord for your partner as the case may be.
Encouragement and Exhortation
Psalm 139:13-18 NIV
13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, i know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you when i was made in the secret place, when i was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand – when I awake, I am still with you.
The Lord your God who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes
Do not be afraid of them; the Lord your God himself will fight for you
Are you enlisted in the Lord’s army? You are guaranteed to be a sign and a wonder. God will back you up with all resources in heaven and on earth. You will not lack ammunition – power to combat the forces of darkness. Your victory in battle is a sure thing – guaranteed. Selah
