God’s will is found in God’s Word. If we want to find His will, we must read His Word. It’s often that simple—and yet, it’s also difficult. But it needn’t be.
In fact, God has always made His Word accessible to us—today more than ever.
It’s an incredible opportunity for us.
The Levitical Cities – God’s Word Made Easy
After Joshua parceled out the land of Canaan to the 12 tribes at Shiloh, the priestly tribe of Levi received an inheritance far different from the others (Josh. 21).
Rather than getting a portion of land on which the tribe could settle, the tribe of Levi acquired Levitical Cities scattered throughout the other tribes.
Strategically placed along main roads, this distribution of the 48 Levitical cities among the 12 tribes meant that any Hebrew who needed the wisdom of God’s Word had to travel no longer than one day to find a priest.
Years earlier, Moses had blessed each tribe, praying specifically for the Levites:
Now let them teach your regulations to Jacob; let them give your instructions to Israel. —Deut. 33:10
The distribution of the Levitical cities made the ministry of God’s Word more accessible to His people.
