Possessing Your Possession

The Death of Joshua

6 After Joshua sent the people away, each of the tribes left to take possession of the land allotted to them. 7 And the Israelites served the Lord throughout the lifetime of Joshua and the leaders who outlived him—those who had seen all the great things the Lord had done for Israel.

8 Joshua son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died at the age of 110. 9 They buried him in the land he had been allocated, at Timnath-serah[ in the hill country of Ephraim, north of Mount Gaash.

Israel Disobeys the Lord
10 After that generation died, another generation grew up who did not acknowledge the Lord or remember the mighty things he had done for Israel.

11 The Israelites did evil in the Lord’s sight and served the images of Baal. 12 They abandoned the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They went after other gods, worshiping the gods of the people around them. And they angered the Lord. 13 They abandoned the Lord to serve Baal and the images of Ashtoreth. 14 This made the Lord burn with anger against Israel, so he handed them over to raiders who stole their possessions. He turned them over to their enemies all around, and they were no longer able to resist them. 15 Every time Israel went out to battle, the Lord fought against them, causing them to be defeated, just as he had warned. And the people were in great distress.

The land my have been allotted

But you have to take possession
Before you can enjoy the goods.
A gift unwrapped cannot be enjoyed.
Salvation not received can’t be enjoyed.
Soap that is not used cannot clean.

After taking possession be careful.
Make not the good or boon your God.
Know that God will not share His glory.
Do not pursue other gods or idols.
For they will steal your heart & mind
Leave you empty, high and dry.

Besides, you will court the anger of God
When you forget the Fountain of your life
And stop drinking from your cistern
Prostituting yourself here and there
He will deliver you to your enemies
And you will have thrown away your inheritance.

Child of God. Possess your Possession!
