DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Joshua 16-18
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD, and there Joshua divided the land to the children of Israel according to their divisions.” (Joshua 18:10)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the just and fair God (Isaiah 45:21 and Deuteronomy 10:17). Our God provides justice for all (Psalm 33:5 and Isaiah 30:18). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how the territories of Ephraim, Manasseh, and Benjamin were defined, and how the land of Israel was divided by Joshua according to God’s commands, and the land was given to the tribes of Israel. As believers in God, it is always good to know that, God has prepared His eternal rewards for all His people (2 Corinthians 4:16-18). Everyone that chooses to serve the Lord Jesus Christ here in this life on Earth, will be honored by God in this life, and forevermore (John 12:26). And, where the Lord Jesus Christ is, that is where all His people will be with Him also (John 14:1-3). Therefore, it is good to choose wisely how we live our lives, and to make the choice to always serve God in all that we do. Our inheritance is with the Lord Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:26-29). God is good to all people (Psalm 145:9). Thank God for His eternal salvation! Thank God for the sacrifice that the Lord Jesus Christ provided for all of us! Thank God for all His blessings in our lives! Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)
“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.” (Matthew 16:26-27)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17)
“If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.” (John 12:26)
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:1-3)
