Joshua 17:17-18 – 17 And Joshua spoke to the house of Joseph—to Ephraim and Manasseh—saying, “You are a great people and have great power; you shall not have only one lot, 18 but the mountain country shall be yours. Although it iswooded, you shall cut it down, and its farthest extent shall be yours; for you shall drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots and are strong.”

We pray for blessings, but expect the miraculous. We assume that God’s blessings in our lives will come easy and require little, or no, work on our part. In today’s passage we read, “18 but the mountain country shall be yours. Although it iswooded, you shall cut it down, and its farthest extent shall be yours; for you shall drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots and are strong.” God blessed Israel, but it was going to require work on Israel’s part in order for it to be a blessing. Don’t miss out on God’s blessings in your life because they require some work on your part. God’s blessings are worth any work that may be required by us.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
