”Tell them: When you enter Canaan, these are the borders of the land you are getting as an inheritance,” [Numbers 34:1 TM]
God is a God of order and well-defined boundaries. He has given instruction to those that are his to claim the inheritance set-aside for them. Stay in the Word. “You’ll get where you’re going… you’ll succeed… Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take… take the land God… is giving you to possess” [Joshua 1:8-11] When the enemy breaks through your borders he has one plan – steal your inheritance – kill all hope, and destroy all evidence of ownership! “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” [John 10:10a] Every detail is taken care of all the Israelites had to do was live according to the plan by possessing what was designated to them.
When the enemy attacks your hope remember Paul has prayed for you – “…that you may know what is the hope of his calling… the riches of the glory of His inheritance.” [Ephesians 1:18b]
You may find yourself standing alone and the enemy will tell you that God has abandoned you. He has not. God needs to get you alone for his Kingdom purposes. But God’s hand is upon you, do not be discouraged. Take your stand and resolve to claim your inheritance.
The hope you have is a living hope that cannot be killed, don’t believe the lie of the devil, God will explode your hope into fresh revelation and your inheritance will be more than you can ask or even think.
