Take what God has given

The tribe of Dan sent spies into the land that God had given them, and when the spies returned the tribe wanted to hear the report (Judges 18:8). 
The five spies reported, 

“Arise, let us go up against them. For we have seen the land, and indeed it is very good. Would you do nothing? Do not hesitate to go, and enter to possess the land. When you go, you will come to a secure people and a large land. For God has given it into your hands, a place where there is no lack of anything that is on the earth” (Judges 18:9-10). 

The spies spoke correctly that God had given them the land, and they should not just sit there. There was no need for hesitation. 

God has given us many things. Have we taken them? For example, He has given the blessing of forgiveness. Have we taken it when we sin?
