Joshua blesses Israel -- Rev. Dr. J. Samuel Sudhakar

Scripture : 'So Joshua blessed them and sent them away' Joshua 22:6

Joshua, the son of Nun, was commissioned by God to lead the children of Israel to the Promised Land after Moses. Joshua stood in the gap and fought against mighty kings and kingdoms and took away their inheritance. He distributed it evenly to all the tribes of Israel according to the leading of God. Joshua 21:43 says, 'The LORD gave to Israel all the land which He sware to give unto their fathers and they possessed it and dwelt therein.' The LORD fulfilled every word that He spoke to Moses and fulfilled through Joshua His settlement for Israel.

After the distribution, Joshua advised all the tribes of Israel to hold on to God, fear Him and to walk in all His ways, to keep His commandments, cleave to Him and serve the LORD with all their heart and soul (Joshua 22:5). After this advice, the man of God Joshua, blessed all the tribes of Israel. Then he sent them to their settlements. The LORD who promised Israel fulfilled it.

Similarly every blessing foretold by God's servants to you and your family will certainly come to pass. What God has given to you none can pluck it out of your hands. As Joshua blessed Israel when they obeyed the LORD God, similarly in these last days, the LORD Jesus Christ delights in blessing you and your family that you may live happily with your family as long as God gives you life on this earth. As the children of Israel were led by Joshua, you should be submissive to the move of the Holy Spirit in your life. You have to overcome satan who induces unbelief and fear. Resist him and he will flee from you.

Prayer : LORD, with Your blessings I will be blessed on this earth. Amen.

Thought for the Day : None can step into our inheritance.
