“According to Adonai’s order they gave him the city he had asked for, Timnat-Serach in the hills of Efrayim; so he built up the city and lived in it.”
Joshua 19:50 CJB
As we serve the LORD, we may feel that we are entitled to everything we desire. Be careful of that mindset! Joshua is not given the best property here. Timnat-Serach is about eleven miles from Shiloh and sixteen miles southwest of Shechem, not a very impressive piece if real-estate! But Joshua doesn’t complain!
“And let shalom which comes from the Messiah be your heart’s decision-maker, for this is why you were called to be part of a single Body(in Jesus). And be thankful.”
Colossians 3:15 CJB
It is really easy to think and feel that the LORD needs to give us more! But we really need to be content in what we have and look for the hidden blessings that are there if we just look instead of complain.
“And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.”
1 Timothy 6:8 CJB
We all have wants and desires, but are we searching out the things of the LORD? Have a blessed day seeking what the LORD has given us already!
