By Don Ruhl

Israel took the Land of Canaan because the Lord gave them the land. When they took it, He divided it for them according to their tribes:

Then the men arose to go away; and Joshua charged those who went to survey the land, saying, “Go, walk through the land, survey it, and come back to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD in Shiloh.” So the men went, passed through the land, and wrote the survey in a book in seven parts by cities; and they came to Joshua at the camp in Shiloh. Then Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD, and there Joshua divided the land to the children of Israel according to their divisions.

– Joshua 18.8–10

The men did their part. The Lord did His part. The Lord provides when we do what He wants.

Questions:

  • What was the location where the casting lots for the land was done?
  • What were the men to do?
