After the death of Moses, Joshua received the promise “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.” Joshua subsequently spent his life claiming territory for the kingdom of God. The last few verses of the book of Joshua reveal at the end of his life Joshua was buried, not in the middle of the land he claimed, but in its borders. This tells us that from the day Joshua received the promise until the day he was buried, he claimed land. In the kingdom of God, Columbus is a border town. We are involved in taking territory constantly. The price of this privilege is we must remain vigilant. People in war zones, do not live in comfort. Borders are always places of great contention. It is important to understand where we are so we understand the attacks are not because of what we have done wrong but are because of who we are in the kingdom of God.
Are you tired of living an empty life? Does your face advertise one story but your hear tell another story? The first step the woman in the 1 Kings 17 story took was to admit her emptiness. Step past the barrier of wondering what someone will think when they find out you are empty. When you drink and experience His spirit, there is an end to emptiness.
