You Are A Great People

You Are A Great People by Kirk Hunt

And Joshua spoke to the house of Joseph—to Ephraim and Manasseh—saying, “You are a great people and have great power; you shall not have only one lot, but the mountain country shall be yours. Although it is wooded, you shall cut it down, and its farthest extent shall be yours; for you shall drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots and are strong.”

Joshua 17:17-18 NKJV
Please also read Joshua 17:14-18

The tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh saw themselves as a powerful and numerous folk. As a great people, they felt they deserved more land than they had been assigned. Joshua immediately gave them an additional plot of valuable land. All they had to do is remove the occupants and possess the land.

Has God blessed you? Then you are a great people. Possess your assignment.

Of course, there is the challenge of clearing the land of obstacles and adversaries. There is the risk of battles with the enemies. There is the hard work of making the land productive.

Delay and difficulty are not denial.” Great stature and high position requires great tasks and challenging assignments. God makes His men and women great so He can give them extraordinary assignments.

He has made you powerful and blessed. All you have to do is use His blessing for His assignment. Take possession of your assignment.

Think: You are a great people. Possess your assignment.

Pray:Father-God, give me the strength and skill to possess my assignment.”

Do Your Part

“Do Your Part” by Kirk Hunt

So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.

Joshua 6:20 (KJV)

Israel did not have siege engines to destroy the walls or gates of Jericho. Digging under the walls, if possible, would have required far more than seven days. Only God could execute the miracle of knocking down Jericho’s walls with a trumpet choir.

God’s intervention didn’t excuse Israel from their part. The soldiers and inhabitants of the city remained after the walls fell. Even after the miracle, the hard and perilous fighting to capture the city remained.

It is a miracle that you are where you are. God has orchestrated events for you. He has maneuvered you, and those around you, to be in the right places at the right times.

All of that, so you can do your part. God has set you up for incredible blessing and prosperity. Now you have to get off the couch and do your part in His plan.

Think: God has set me up, so I can do my part.

Pray: “Father-God, help me to do my part in Your plan for my life..”
