Today’s devotional is teaching us that we need to claim what God has given us. Actually physically putting their feet on the land, is what was required as Joshua took the promised land. Yet, because they didn’t actually walk all of the land as they were told, they weren’t given all of it. Only what they took the time to walk on and physically claim was what they ended up with. As believers there is much that we are promised, but like the Isrealites we are too lazy to claim what has been given to us. We want to sit in our homes on our thrones called lazy boys and control all that is around us. We determine what government has done wrong on a regional and national level. We complain how others manage our taxes. Yet, we are too lazy to step up to the mantle to change anything. We can’t just say, oh that’s just how it is. We are decendents of a strong and powerful Nation. One that says we are free to practice our religious beliefs. Our ancestors wanted to be able to worship God in their own way. Let not our leaders control our religion as the royal family did in England heading the church. That is why there is separation of church and state, not to keep religion out of any government issues. Satan has twisted what was meant for good and corrupted it, perverted it. Pushing all religious beliefs away from our ruling government. Just one generation ago there was no decision made on any candidate unless we knew their religious views and that they attended church. Now it seems to be taboo to even ask if a candidate believes in Christ. What they choose to believe in their homes and practice tells the people what kind of person they are, and if they have morals that rule their actions. When did it become so taboo to talk about God? I don’t know about you, but I certainly see how things described in Revelations could happen very easily. It’s certainly time to wake up before it’s too late.
Spend some time thinking about God today and where you are with Him.
