READ: JOSHUA 19 // #TruthVignette

The tribe of Simeon, Zebulum, Issachar, Asher, Naphtali, Dan — they all received their inheritance without fail and perfectly as promised by our Lord.

After all the tribes had received their territories and settled into their inheritance, Joshua, their leader, was given his land.

“When they had finished distributing the several territories of the lands as inheritances, the people of Israel gave an inheritance among them to Joshua the son of Nun. By command of the Lord they gave him the city that he asked, Timnath-serah in the hill country of Ephraim.” {Joshua 19:49-50, ESV}

When Joshua requested Timnath-serah, it was already finished. The land already belonged to him.  The people of Israel gave Joshua what he requested sprung forth out of the faithful instruction and provision of the Lord. But we also know, that the land he requested had already been distributed to the tribe of Ephraim. The tribe of his ancestry.

Friends, let this story serve as a reminder that we have already been given all that we need!  — it has already been provided.  Our Lord knows what we need before we ask for it.  Our part, need only be to walk trusting in the faithfulness of our Heavenly Father and ask believing whole-heartedly that God will provide for all our needs, just as He has promised. Amen!

“You do not have, because you do not ask.” {James 4:2, ESV}

“And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” {Matthew 21:22, ESV}

The book of Joshua is one epic story detailing the faithfulness of GOD to fulfill all His promises to us! Joshua received a fulfillment of his promised land.   A land, in Ephraim, that when requested, had already belonged to his people.

What is your Ephraim? Your land that has already been provided –  you just need to ask and believe God for it today?

Believe It! – God has already given us all we need!

Trust It! – “For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened….If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” {Luke 11:10-13, ESV}

Live It! – Remember our Lord today and practice praying like this {I have this prayer set in my calendar at noon to remind me to pray this daily}:

“…For your father knows what you need before you ask him.  Pray then like this:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, 

as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptations,  but deliver us from evil.

{Matthew 6:8-13, ESV}

believe it trust it live it
