“But you will cross the Jordan and settle in the land the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, and he will give you rest from all your enemies around you so that you will live in safety.” – Deuteronomy 12:10
Do you ever wonder what your inheritance is? I’m not talking about the future hope of dwelling in Heaven, not talking about holding on until Jesus returns, or anything else like that. I’m talking about the here and now.
What is the land that God is calling you to move into?
I was asking the Lord this weekend about what my inheritance is, and for the first time in months, I felt Him awaken my heart for worship. All of my dead aspirations were suddenly resurrected as flesh grew on the skeletons of dreams long ago. I could sense the flood of His breath fill my lungs as what was dead to me came to life all over again, roaring with passion and longing on the inside of me.
And it got me to thinking that maybe our inheritance has something to do with what makes us come most alive both physically and spiritually. The Lord promises us a future and a hope. There’s no hope, no rest, and no safety in an office cubicle for me (maybe there is for you), but there is freedom and rest for me in the heart of worship.
So I decided that I want to be more intentional about stewarding the passion, the gift, and the dream to populate Earth with Heaven’s songs. I want to position myself to usher in the Presence of God in the places around me.
The hardest part is going to be creating momentum that will propel me into occupying the thing that God has promised.
Any ideas how to increase the momentum that will carry me into settling into my inheritance?
