Israel Gave Land to the Levites

When Israel conquered the land of Canaan, they did as the Lord said to do concerning land for the Levities, “So the children of Israel gave to the Levites from their inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their common-lands…And the children of Israel gave these cities with their common-lands by lot to the Levites, as the LORD had commanded by the hand of Moses” (Joshua 21:3-8).
We often think of Israel as rebelling against the Lord, but they often obeyed Him. While the Levites could not have a separate region they could call their own as the rest of the tribes did, yet, they still needed places to live. The Lord wanted them scattered throughout the land and that meant that each tribe had to give some land to the Levites.
Israel did as the Lord commanded and He blessed them for it. It was just that simple. Obey and be blessed. Have you obeyed the Lord fully? Do it and see what happens.
