Joshua 13:1-14:15; Luke 18:1-17; Psalm 85:1-13; Proverbs 13:7-8

God has said, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope'” (Jeremiah 29:11). God has plans for you! Good plans for you! God has a strategic plan for your life that will cause you to smile!!

When we try to create our own plan, we fall very short of God’s real plan. He is the only one who has the power to bring to pass His big plan for our lives. As you read the story of Israel and the dividing of the land, it becomes very clear that God had already thought out who would get what and when. He knew who was where and who needed to be moved out of the way so that His people could take possession of their inheritance.

No one was left out. Everyone received their portion to be a perpetual blessing to their family. So you think that God has only done this for Israel? Certainly not! God knows exactly what He has in store for you and your family. He has blessings with your name on them. They are reserved and set aside just for you. All God wants you to do is trust Him enough to execute His plans for your life. In the end, you will see the wisdom of His plan and you will most certainly enjoy the blessings of the plan. You have an inheritance that is waiting for you. Will you claim it today?
