How Long?

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Joshua 18:3

So Joshua said to the Israelites: “How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has given you?”


After the Israelites had marched into Jericho, it was still quite a while before each tribe finally subdued the territories they were allotted by Joshua. Finally, he asked seven of the tribes, “How Long are you going to take to do what God wants you to do?”


Too often in my own life I’ve waited and waited for the Lord to make something happen for me. All along, I’ve already been living and operating in victory, acting as though He needs to do MORE. These seven tribes eventually took what God ordained for them to have, but THEY had to make the move on what was theirs. Faith is always forward moving, not sitting and hoping. While they were waiting, God was looking down from heaven asking them, “How Long will you take to finally walk in and claim what I’ve given you?”


Dear Jesus,

This AM, with Your help I’m going to move in and take what You already gave me. I know what it is and I’m going for it! Amen
