Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine. The land you have given me is a pleasant land. What a wonderful inheritance! – (Psalm 16:5-6 NLT)
The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD you God and walk in His ways. Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they shall be afraid of you. –(Deuteronomy 28:9 NKJV)
God desires that your “land” be a delight, a representation of your inheritance in Him, and the pleasant territory described by David.
Your “land” includes the time and space allotted to you by God. When we are faithful to God’s commands and manage our territory well, we become a beacon to others, a testimony of God’s goodness and favor. Moses said the nations would stand in awe of God’s people because of their unique relationship with the Almighty.
God has given each of us a territory to occupy. The upkeep of our “delightful land” falls to us; it is not accidental, but a matter of assuming our rightful authority. In God’s eyes, what goes on in your territory is your responsibility.
