Do you sometimes feel that what you get from God is too small, and that you deserve more? Well, you are not the first. In Joshua 17:14-18, after Joshua had distributed inheritances among the people, the family of Joseph came to him and complained that the portion of the land that was given to them was too small, considering the fact that they are great people. Great people? Someone would have thought that Joshua made a mistake, and would assign another land to them. But surprisingly, the response was different.
Joshua acknowledged that indeed the family of Joseph are great people, and that he assigned a small portion of land to them. But then he said "they are not only entitled to that small land, because all the lands on the mountains can be possessed by them, if they defeat the oppositions". So, they had bigger land space than any other family, except that they had to contend with the enemy in battle. Personally, I have discovered that God does not have problems giving me ideas that will give me plenty of money, but when I ask Him for money, He gives me a small portion. When God does not give you as much as you asked for, then it probably means you have what it takes to have more than you have asked for.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; GREATNESS IS AT A PRICE. IF GOD HAS PUT GREATNESS WITHIN YOU, THEN HE WILL NOT WASTE IT. DO NOT ALWAYS EXPECT HIM TO GIVE YOU THINGS THAT THE THINGS HE HAS PUT INSIDE YOU CAN GIVE TO YOU. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
