Possess Your Possessions

“Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon
I have given to you…”
(Joshua 1:3)

God spoke these words to Joshua as he was leading the children of Israel into the promised land of Canaan. They show us a principle used by God as He gives us spiritual blessings, such as the Word of God, prayer, worship, spiritual community and many, many others. When He gives them to us we own them. But, according to the principle we learn from God’s dealings with Joshua, we do not possess them until we use them.

Many people own a Bible but they never read it. According to this principle they own their Bible but they do not possess their Bible. God has given every one the gift of prayer. He has given us access to what He calls “the throne of grace” from which He dispenses all kinds of blessings we do not earn, or achieve, or deserve. All we have to do is ask Him for those spiritual blessings. Millions don’t know about that throne. Even worse, millions who know never approach that throne. James has a word for them: “You have not because you ask not.”

The same can be said of faith, worship, spiritual community with other believers, communion with God, forgiveness, the mercy of God that withholds what we deserve, and the grace of God that lavishes on us all kinds of blessings we don’t deserve.

The application of this principle Joshua learned from God is simply this: possess your possessions.

    The God I know is the God that never fail in his promises, when God say something , that must come to pass , because he knew us even before we were born, he promise the coming of his son Jesus Christ through the prophets and it came to pass, I love him because he is a truthful God.

  2. Nigeria needs divine intervention. Our leaders should listen to the call for true federalism to achieve vision 20.20.

    When you are in His presence you are in your possession , the presence of God is the fullness of ALL, Nothing can hinder you from what God has given to you,but yourself !

    Our right is to claim it ,walk in it, rule, and have dominion that’s God’s promise to us , so let’s play our part well.
