Devotion Knowing God’s Word—Specific or General?

And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about. And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This is the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which the LORD commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the half tribe: —
Numbers 34:12-13 (KJV)

We often think of the Bible as having only general guidelines. The rest we figure out ourselves. But as this chapter shows, at times, God’s Word gets very specific.

But we cannot know those specifics or know truth from error if we don’t regularly spend time reading, studying and memorizing His Word. With that as a foundation, we don’t have to figure things out on our own for the Holy Spirit within, along with God’s Word, will guide–if we ask and if we’re willing to follow God’s Way.

Have a need? Go to the source: God’s Word and prayer.

He that follows after righteousness and mercy finds life, righteousness, and honour. —Proverbs 21:21
