Joshua 18:3 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you?
God gives us things. He promises us great stuff. But the promise doesn’t mean that we have it. We are to get up and go get it.
God had promised them the land. It was theirs for the taking. But they had to get up and go posses the land.
The question asked is how long are you not going to take what I have given you? How long are you slack to go and possess.
Is that a problem in your life? We act like God doesn’t want to give us stuff when it is ours for the taking. Instead of taking it we make excuses. We hang back, we wait.
We could have it. It is ours. We have the promise but that is not excuse for sitting here lazily asking God to just dump it in our lap.
