Joshua 19 is all about the land allotments being given to the various tribes of the Children of Israel. At first look, this may seem like a chapter to skim or breeze through. But when you realize what it means, it becomes a golden nugget to savor.
This is all the fulfillment of God’s promise made to Abraham in Genesis 17:8:
The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God.
God is a promise maker and a promiser keeper! Every time! For many years they could not imagine this promise coming true. They were slaves in Egypt – they were wonderers for 40 years in the wilderness. Now God is making good on His promise. You can trust Him!
But why now? Why wait this long? God honors and blesses obedience. It took this long for them to obey and claim the promise of God.
What’s keeping you from God’s full blessings? Is it worth it?
What promises has God made to you? How has He fulfilled them? Praise Him today!
