When the children of Israel were taking over the Promised Land, they came as a consuming force that literary consumed the nations before them and their lands. Consuming here is to aggressively eat as you overwhelming descend upon your object. More like a hungry lion consumes its prey. When the nations heard about what transpired as Israel consumed the neighbouring nations, they were gripped with fear.
As you get into the mode to possess the land, don’t forget to become a consuming force. Look to aggressively lap up whatever land has been set before you like a consuming fire. Don’t be conservative or reluctant with the promises of God. Remove the limits of reservation and go for it with a vehement aggression to consume. Don’t just eat the land. Consume the land!
SCRIPTURE READING: Deuteronomy 9:3 Therefore understand today that the Lord your God is He who goes over before you as a consuming fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the Lord has said to you.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, may I be aggressive while consuming the land. May my thoughts and actions be aligned unto Your word as I possess in Jesus’ name.
