Sharing An Insight – Lesson 7

Why is it that the final 5% or 2% of a project is often the hardest to complete and sometimes left undone? Joshua reminded some of the tribes that they could have more territory if they would continue to trust God and drive out the final few Canaanites, but for some reason they didn’t do it even though the rewards would have been so much greater. At times it is quite easy to rationalize and find excuses for my own lack of discipline or procrastination, too, even though I know that through “God-confidence” it would be possible. I’m just wondering, Lord, where are the places in my habits and attitudes that you would like me to drive out the remaining bits and pieces of complacency, anxiety, and bitterness? Where am I content to let those “enemies” continue to keep me from experiencing all of your blessings?
