Devotion: Take What God Has Given You


Let’s talk about the story of the children of Israel and the promise land.  In this story, God promises to give a particular land to the children that were led out of Egypt as part of an inheritance, but with one condition.  And though the land was possessed by others, including giants, all the children of Israel had do was basically go in and take possession of the land (Deuteronomy 11:22-25).  But with all of the promises and assurances of God, it was their unbelief that delayed them from getting what God had given to or promised them.  But with all of the promises and assurances of God, it was their unbelief that delayed them from getting what God had given to or promised them (Numbers 14:20-25).

Today, you have been given the privilege to become a child of God (John 1:12-13), so that you can share in the blessings of Abraham and receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (Galatians 3:14).  Once you become a child of God, you then have the right to the inheritance of the new covenant, a better covenant, built with better promises (Hebrews 8:6-13), a divine inheritance to the best in life, deserving all the Father has to offer (Romans 8:14-17), which includes the right to good health, wealth, and total life prosperity (I John 1:2), but there is one condition.  Yes that’s right, you have to take possession of it.  You have to take inventory of the rights, privileges, and inheritance that are part of the promise and lay claim to them.  Do not allow your unbelief to stop or delay you from going and getting what God has given you as it did the children of Israel.

As always, we pray that today’s message will bless you, inform you, and that you will be the better for having read it.  If blessed by this message please share so that others may be blessed as well.  Amen.

Enjoy your blessings - KW
