While going through our study this week,I was impressed by how God guided his people to the land and set boundaries for his children,the Israelites.
First the land that was promised to the Israelites was Canaan.The Israelite’s were to go and attack the inhabitants,defeat and destroy them and then occupy their land.Then God put boundaries to this land.
There was the;
Southern side border;from the wilderness of Zin to the river of Egypt and the sea.
Western border;The Great Sea
North border;Mount Hor
East border;The Salt Sea
But we discover that some children decided to set their own boundaries !
The Reubenites and Gadites saw some land which they thought was better for them and their livestock.They decided to settle in this land and did not want what God had set aside for them.
They decided to choose their land and set their own boundaries.Question is,what type of person are you?
Have you allowed the Lord to guide you through his word,or have you decided to follow your own ways?
As a christian do you have rules that guide your life?If yes are you following them?
I have been trying to set my boundaries.For example,when a married man is interested in me,I can’t give them a chance.That is a boundary that I cannot cross.It is a no gone zone.Why?Because God says it is sinful to fornicate,God says we should keep the marriage bed pure.These are the boundaries the Lord has set for us regarding Sex and Marriage.
Let us follow God’s rules and ways so that we can benefit,but if we choose our own ways,we will lose what God has kept for us.
