How long will you wait… Joshua 18:3 “Come,” he said. Matt. 14:29
The fire alarm has just been pulled… you have 60 seconds… what will you take? 1, 2…
Take this: God never runs out. Reading about all the land allotments for Israel and it just keeps going and going and going. God never runs out of room and resources for His creation. Praise Him! But knowing that and living like we believe it are two totally different things.
Joshua 18:3 So Joshua said to the Israelites: “How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you?
God had given them the land but they were stalling, waiting… on what?! Joshua asks them (and us) a good question… how long will you wait before you RECEIVE what is already yours?! Jesus’ extends eternal life, forgiveness, love, peace, His constant presence… all resources are His… He never runs out. How many of us are just standing there looking at Him with His outstretched hand today? Our hands too full of what we are clinging to in our own self… worry, finite understanding, fleeting peace the world gives…?! Maybe its HIM we need to receive. Maybe you already have Jesus and you need to let go of more self to reach out and receive His abundant blessings He longs to lavish upon you. Start LIVING like you believe He is all you need and He never runs out.
59, 60. GO!
