Numbers 34:1-2
“The Lord said to Moses, “Command the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter Canaan, the land that will be allotted to you as an inheritance is to have these boundaries:” 
God’s power and resource are limitless…and yet He put boundaries and limits on the inheritance for His people. Why? God knew exactly what His people needed, to supply their needs. The inheritance He gave them was large enough to provide the resources they needed.
The inheritance was not just a gift and a resource for God’s people though, it was also a responsibility. They were to take care of the land, farm the land, and protect the land for future generations.
God put boundaries on the inheritance, so that they would not be overwhelmed with the weight of their responsibility and the blessing become a curse in their life. 
God has blessed me immensely! He’s given me a wife and sons, a home, a job that I love, resources to manage, and dreams to pursue. I have exactly what God has determined that I need, and that I can handle.
I must not allow discontent to make me crave and covet what God has not given me, because He knows exactly what I need.
I also need to trust Him when I begin to feel overwhelmed, because He also knows the limits of my capacity. 
God, thank you for giving me all that I need. Help me to live life with gratefulness, and not discontent. Help me to remember that your blessings are accompanied by responsibilities, and trust you to give me strength and guidance on the days when I feel overwhelmed.
