Joshua 17:17 And Joshua spake unto the house of Joseph, even to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying, Thou art a great people, and hast great power: thou shalt not have one lot only: 18 But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and though they be strong.
So many of God’s people complain that He hasn’t given them enough of whatever. The truth is that He has given us all we need and more. It is ours to go and take it and make it happen. We don’t have what we need because we do not work with what we have.
God gave them enough land but they only wanted the land that wouldn’t take so much effort. I want God to do great things with me but I do not want to pay the price to see Him do that. This seems to be the story of the majority of us!
We can see God do great things. It is time to quit making excuses and get to work. It is time to just go do what we know we have to do even if we don’t like doing it!
