DCLM Daily Manna Devotional October 4, 2017
Topic: Our Inheritance
Bible Text: Joshua 15:48-63
Key Verse: “As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out: but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day” (Joshua 15:63).
MESSAGE: Inheritance means something important or valuable that passes to another person to own and enjoy after the original owner dies. It can be an item of property or title. It should be noted that taking full possession of our inheritance is crucial.
From the text, the boundaries and division of the Promised Land were very specific for each of the tribes of Israel. The tribe of Judah was able to take possession of the cities that were in the mountains and those in the wilderness. But Jerusalem was said to have continued in the hands of the Jebusites; the children of Judah could not drive them out because of their sluggishness and unbelief. Had they attempted it with vigour and resolution, God would surely have given them success.
DCLM Daily Manna Devotional: Absolute Obedience
The Lord expected the children of Israel to have confronted their challenges in full obedience to His command. He expected them to appropriate His blessings for them by absolute trust. In like manner, believers are not to be satisfied with anything less than the perfect will and portion of God for their lives. In the battles of life, victory and solution to challenges often lie in acting prayerfully with faith in God and not in beating a hasty retreat in the face of challenges.
Believers in the New Testament have been admonished not to spare their old fallen nature after they are saved, but to mortify them, that is, put to death all the habits of the old life. We must understand that there are forces to contend with if we desire a higher spiritual life. If our desire is to live the deeper and richer life of righteousness and holiness, we have to fight the good fight of faith and continually put our flesh under subjection so we can obtain “an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for [us]” (1 Peter 1:4).
Thought for the day: The truly redeemed is a partaker of God’s inheritance.
