Inheriting the Kingdom!

Scripture reading for March 20th:  Joshua 12-14, Luke 13

Key Scriptures: Luke 13:18-19  “He said therefore, “What is the kingdom of God like?  And to what shall I compare it?  It is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his garden, and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made their nests in it.”

Jesus illustrated the nature of God’s kingdom to His disciples.  He used the common mustard seed to illustrate how powerful something appearing so small in the natural really was.  When this small seed was placed in the garden, it grew and became a great tree that could provide shelter and nesting for the birds.  Caleb’s faith build his inheritance after 45 years of patience!

Joshua 14:10-12 “And now, behold, the Lord has kept me alive, just as He said, these forty-five years since the time that the Lord spoke this word to Moses, while Israel walked in the wilderness.  And now,  behold, I am this day eighty five years old.  I am still as strong today as I was in the day that Moses sent me, my strength is now what my strength was then. So now, give me that hill country of which the Lord spoke on that day. . .”

Prayer:  Lord, thank You for these examples of men of faith that believed and stood on Your Word.  May I be strong and courageous all my days.  Amen.
