A Part of the Whole

“Therefore they said, ‘If we have found favor in your sight, let this land be given to your servants as a possession, and do not take us over the Jordan’.
And Moses said to the children of Gad and to the children of Reuben, ‘Shall your brethren go to war while you sit here?’
‘Now why will you discourage the heart of the children of Israel from going over into the land which the Lord has given them’.” Numbers 32:5-7

The families of Gad and Reuben saw where they needed to be, as individuals. Moses saw and thought of the children of Israel as a whole.

Lord, thank You that whatever plans You have for me will encourage others as well. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Crossing Jordan

I have needs
I know You see them

and You see
my brother’s too

help me cross
the Jordan for him

knowing I’ll
be filled by You.

It’s His

“The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine . . .” Leviticus 25:23

The land we pressure Israel to give away permanently is not theirs to give . . .it’s God’s.

Lord, we pray for Your will, Your word, and Your desire for Israel today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Considering

There is a land
that was given
by the hand
of God,
who are we
to decide
it is ours
to divide?

Methods of Mobility

“The poles shall be put in the rings and the poles shall be in the sides of the altar to bear it.”  Exodus 27:7

Everything God told Moses to make for the tabernacle contained a way for it to be lifted and carried.  The people were still in the process of leaving Egypt behind and getting to their promised land.  But that didn’t mean God wasn’t with them as they traveled.

Thank You, Jesus, for being wonderfully mobile and taking us with You wherever You go.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Arrival Time?

Though we’ve not arrived yet
doesn’t mean that we’re lacking
just means we’ve got to keep
pressing on with Him

picking up the tools He gives
to use and carry with us
willing to keep moving
closer and closer with Him.

Beauty for Ashes

He gives me hope; He puts the stars back in my eyes.
