NUMBERS 32:1-5, Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very great multitude of livestock; and when they saw the land of Jazer and the land of Gilead, that indeed the region was a place for livestock, 2 the children of Gad and the children of Reuben came and spoke to Moses, to Eleazar the priest, and to the leaders of the congregation, saying, 4 the country which the Lord defeated before the congregation of Israel, is a land for livestock, and your servants have livestock.” 5 Therefore they said, “If we have found favor in your sight, let this land be given to your servants as a possession. Do not take us over the Jordan.”
The children of Israel have been wandering for 40 years in the desert because of unbelief, and now it is time!! It’s time to take what God promised them with Abraham. They are getting ready to enter the land of milk and honey, the land of abundance, the land of freedom, the land of possession, the land of excellence, the land of PROMISE!
Just think about this for a second…..
They wandered for 40 years, they are right across the river from the PROMISED LAND, yet two of the tribes would rather SETTLE for second best because it was more comfortable for them.
DO NOT TAKE US OVER THE JORDAN = WE ARE SURRENDERING OUR INHERITANCE OF THE BEST OF GOD’S PROMISE!
We think that they are stupid, foolish, crazy people. They wandered, and now the best is right across the river, yet they do not want the best, but to settle for seconds.
HOW MANY CHRISTIANS DO THAT ALL THE TIME?
They live half in the world and half in the kingdom of God, or less…..
As a Pastor, it is so sad to watch so many sell themselves out for foolish, stupid, temporal things that will account for nothing in 10 years, never mind for eternity. THEY HAVE SURRENDERED THE BEST FOR TRASH!
THE PROMISES, THE COVENANT, THE BLESSINGS ARE WHEN YOU GIVE ALL TO JESUS AND CROSS OVER FROM THE WORLD TO THE PROMISED LAND OF CHRIST.
What are you willing to sell your inheritance for?
What are you surrendering your promised land for?
IS IT WORTH IT? IS ANYONE WORTH LOSING IT FOR?
