The dictionary defines possession as something that is owned or possessed and the state of being completely dominated by an idea or emotion.
The dictionary also defines special as Better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual and Exceptionally good or pleasant
The Bible says in the book of Deuteronomy: “That is why the Levites have no share of property or possession of land among the other Israelite tribes. The Lord himself is their special possession, as the Lord your God told them.)”
Deuteronomy 10:9 NLT
Can the same be said of you and I, is the Lord our special possession? Do we prize Him above all else, do we see Him as exceptionally good? Can we say that He has completely dominated all of us, every part?
The Levites had no physical earthly property, no possession, no inheritance nothing but they had God and that was all they needed. The never lacked, they were never abandoned, all their needs were met. There was nothing missing in their lives simply because God was their special possession.
Can we also make God our special possession today? He is the same yesterday, today and forever, He never changes! He will be our ever present help, He will be our shield and exceeding great reward, He will be our ever present help
