Scripture: Deuteronomy 32:8 When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when he divided all mankind; he set up boundaries for the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel.
9 For the Lord’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance. (NIV)
Observation: These verses are from the farewell song of Moses. Each nation was allotted an area of the earth for their inheritance. And within Israel, each tribe was allotted their boundaries. But it seems to me something is missing. Where is the allotted area for the Lord, the Creator, the Deliverer, the Provider, the Sustainer? His allotment is His people!
Application: Along with each one in whom Christ dwells by His spirit, I am the Lord’s possession; I am His portion! As the nations lived within their boundaries, so our lives are the boundary of Christ’s territory. As I submit to his holy authority, I find he rules in love, peace and joy. As I share with others the truth of His Kingdom, He uses me to increase his portion.
Prayer: Lord, use me to increases your boundaries. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
