“Come on...We have seen the land, and it is very good. Aren’t you going to do something? Don’t hesitate to go there and take it over....God has put into your hands, a land that lacks nothing whatever. ”
"Come on!" This command indicates that there is something definite for us to do and that nothing is ours unless we take it. The children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their inheritance" (Josh 16:4 KJV). "The house of Jacob will possess its inheritance" (Obad 17). "The upright shall have good things in possession" (Prov 28:10 KJV).
We need to have appropriating faith in regard to God's promises. We must make God's Word our own personal possession. A child was asked once what appropriating faith was, and the answer was, "It is taking a pencil and underscoring all the me's and mine's and my's in the Bible."
Take any word you please that He has spoken and say, "That word is my word." Put your finger on this promise and say, "It is mine." How much of the Word has been endorsed and receipted and said "It is done." How many promises can you subscribe and say, "Fulfilled to me."
"My son...you are always with me, and everything I have is yours" (Luke 15:31). Do not miss your inheritance through your own neglect.
When faith goes to the market, it always takes a basket.

I LOVE THIS! "Do not miss your inheritance through your own neglect." Isn't that exactly what we do? We second guess, we doubt (my personal favorite), we don't believe, etc. WE get in the way! I am going to find my personal Word! God has fulfilled so many promises to me; I believe! I want my inheritance!
I am a daughter of the King (Gal. 3:26)!
I am joint heir to the throne (Rom. 8:17)!
I am loved and chosen (1 These. 1:4)!
I. AM. HIS.
