Verses 47, 48 – The tribe of Dan found that some of their land was difficult to conquer, so they chose to migrate to Leshem where they knew victory would be easier. It’s easy to trust God when the going is easy, but when it gets tough and things look impossible, then our faith in God is put to the test. Have faith in God that He’s great enough to deliver you in any situation.
Verse 49 – Why was the land divided among the tribes? (1) Boundaries gave each tribe ownership of an area promoting loyalty and unity that would strengthen each tribe. (2) The boundaries reduced conflicts that might have broken out if everyone had wanted to live in the choicest areas. (3) The boundaries fulfilled the promised inheritance to each tribe that began to be given as early as the days of Jacob (Genesis 48:21, 22).
