God's promises must be appropriated

Deuteronomy 2:24 (KJV) states, “Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle."

As Moses neared the end of his life, he imparted God's guidance and laws to a new generation of Israelites, who hadn't witnessed the miraculous events of their ancestors' exodus from Egypt. The book of Deuteronomy aimed to reiterate God's ways and laws to this fresh generation. Today's focus verse highlights one such instruction.

Though God had promised the land to the Israelites, its possession required contention and battles. Similarly, Paul advised Timothy, “This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare."

Just as God gave Israel the land but required them to fight for it, and prophecies were given to Timothy as weapons of spiritual warfare, what will you do with the promises and prophecies God has given you? Will you let them languish, or will you rise up and contend for their fulfillment?

Satan and his demons will resist God's word, actively opposing its fulfillment. Therefore, you must engage in the spiritual battle to appropriate God's promises in your life.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, grant me the grace to contend for all that You have given me. Help me persist in the fight until I possess all in Jesus' name, amen!
