Topic: Reserved Place For You
Key verse: Deuteronomy 2:9
And the Lord said to me, Do not trouble or assault Moab or contend with them in battle, for I will not give you any of their lands for a possession, because I have given Ar to the sons of Lot for a possession. (AMPC)
God has a specific place for you in the inheritance. Discern your battles and stay out of trouble!
God called Abraham alone, but he carried Lot along! This decision eventually brought strife between Abraham and Lot’s herders. Abraham asked Lot to choose a part of the land to resolve the conflict, and they separated.
Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other. Gen 13:11
It doesn’t matter who walked away from you; no man can take your portion from you.
And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: Genesis 13:14
God is the one who allocates the inheritance; settle your portion with him!
Yes, think about Abraham, your ancestor, and Sarah, who gave birth to your nation. Abraham was only one man when I called him. But when I blessed him, he became a great nation.” Isaiah 51:2 (NLT)
The blessing of God increases anything it touches! May the blessing of God come upon what is in your hand to multiply it in Jesus’ name.!
Don’t covet what God has given another; contentment is great gain. Be content with what God has given you!
But godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Tim 6:6
Rejoice in what God has given you; seek the blessing of God on it, and stop pursuing another man’s own.
When you pursue what God has not given you, even when it’s a good course, God will resist you.
Paul and his friends went through Phrygia and Galatia, but the Holy Spirit would not let them preach in Asia. After they arrived in Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not let them. Acts 16:6-7 (CEV)
God has a place and ministry for you. We are not in competition; discover your location and assignment. God may call you to do similar things to what others are doing, but the locations may differ, and the timing of God might be different too.
Are you where God wants you to be today? Are you doing what you’ve been called for? Then it is time to pursue the blessing on it. If you are unsure of your inheritance, then it is time for discovery!
- Father, I thank you for having a portion for me.
- Lord, open my eyes to discern where you have chosen for me to possess.in
- Deliver me, Lord, from a fruitless pursuit in Jesus’ name
- Lord, teach me contentment with the portion you have given me, in Jesus’ name
- Father, let your blessing come upon my portion; my home, marriage, business, career, ministry, and all you have given me in Jesus’ name
I will focus on God’s supply for all my needs.
