OVERVIEW: God had guided and provided and established the boundaries for Israel’s new land. “When you enter Canaan” (verse 2) meant the time had arrived for them to enter the promised land.
BIG IDEA: Put your trust in God and take the steps of faith God is leading you to take.
KEY VERSE: Psalm 16:5 (David’s prayer)
Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine.
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
You don’t have to pray for me to be with you. I am always with you. You don’t have to ask me to lead you. I am always leading. Pray that you would have eyes to see me at work. Pray that you would have ears to hear me speak. Pray that you would have the courage to follow my lead. Live with confidence, and I want that confidence to be in me—in the knowledge that I am with you and will equip you to do all I ask you to do. Walk humbly but live boldly, for your heavenly Father is with you.
Be gracious for all I give you, encourage others for what I give them, and be thankful for what I withhold from you. You show your trust and faith in me when you are content. There is power in contentment because it shows you trust me and is evidence of your faith in action.
Thank God for the ways he has provided for you, and verbalize your trust in him for the ways he has not supplied as you desired.
