We’ve seen a lot on the Old Testament how the fulfillment of a promise might look like work. And we see it again in Joshua.
If you are a numerous people, go up by yourselves to the forest, and there clear ground for yourselves…
When it came down to dividing up the Promised Land for all the tribes of Israel, it seemed some didn’t deem the division fair. When the people of Joseph approached Joshua, the response was simple, if you want more land, make more land. Go clear it an possess it.
Don’t avoid taking possession of what God has promised you just because it might involve some sweat equity. God is no dummy. He knows you’ll have more value for something you’ve worked for.
If you need more land and God presents you with a forest, look on the bright side, you’ve not only got land, but you’ve got the lumber you need to build something great.
