In HIS Presence


Read: JOSHUA 13:14-33

Meditation verse:“But to the tribe of Levi, Moses had given no inheritance; the Lord, God of Israel, was their inheritance, as He had said to them” (Joshua 13:33).

The tribe of Levi was dedicated solely to priestly service, which demanded their total commitment and time. Giving them an allotment of land would saddle them with the responsibility of taking care of the land, which would distract them from their priestly service. So, what did God do? He commanded the other tribes to meet their needs. The Levites were to receive cities within each tribal territory.

God’s ways are unchangeable. In modern times, He has called some people to be Levites: a life of full-time service in ministry. Are you called to be a Levite? Do you sense God’s call? You may know by a strong stirring in your heart. God will always stir your heart in the direction He wants you to go. You can also know from a scripture coming alive in you, through counsel from others or a life experience.

Have you responded to His call, or are you holding back due to fear of lack, failure or other factors? If God has called you to be a Levite in these times, He has already put in your life a person or people who will guarantee your sustenance. Neglecting this call may lead to a life of struggles, failure and disappointment in the other endeavours you choose to embark on instead. Sometimes, it will take humility, faith and total surrender to accept this call, but the rewards are enormous. The Chief Executive Officer of the universe pays the best dividends. Do you sense this call upon your life? Why not surrender totally today?

Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour?

Jesus says in Mathew 11:28; “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, this invitation is for you. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart; all you need to do is invite Him in, by believing and receiving Him.

Are you ready? Here’s a prayer you can say right now:

Dear Lord, I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of grace. I believe that Jesus died to set me free from my sins. Thank You Jesus for dying to save me. Please forgive me for all my sins and come into my heart. Be my Lord and Saviour. Fill me with Your Spirit and enable me to live for You from now onwards, in Jesus’ name, Amen
