“But unto the tribe of Levi Moses gave not any inheritance: the LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto them.” —Joshua 13:33
Levi’s name means “joined to” or “attached.” What a blessed inheritance they received! They were joined to Jehovah. The LORD Himself was the tribe’s inheritance. Their possession was not land that could be invaded or plundered; neither was it vineyards that could be blighted; nor was it houses that could be robbed or destroyed.
Their inheritance was Jehovah God, who is protection from the enemy (Psalm 61:3).
Their inheritance was the LORD God, who is eternal supply (Psalm 34:9).
Their inheritance was the LORD of Israel, who is an everlasting habitation (Psalm 71:3).
Do we rejoice that we are joined to Jehovah God through Christ Jesus? or do we lament that we have not received the lands that others have received? Are we captured by the grace and grandeur of the Lord? or do we covet the worldly gains of other? Rejoice in the Lord because you have been joined to Him, for it is written in 1 Peter 2:9-10,
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
