Speak out and take your possession

It's time to speak up: Why adland needs to be more vocal Source: https://www.campaignlive.co.uk

Then came the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph and these are the names of his daughters Mahlah, Noah and Hoglah and Milcah and Tirzah. And they stood before Moses and before Eleazar the priest and before the princes and all the congregation saying, our father died in the wilderness and he was not in the company of them that gathered themselves together against the Lord in the company of Korah, but died of his own sin and had no sons.Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family because he had no son? Give unto us therefore a possession among the brethren of our father.

And Moses brought their cause before the Lord. And the Lord spake unto Moses saying, the daughters of Zelophehad speak right. Thou shall surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father’s brethren and thou shall cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them. And thou shall speak unto the children of Israel, saying, if a man die and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter. And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren. And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his father’s brethren. And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family and he shall possess it and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment as the Lord commanded MosesNumbers 27:1-11

According to the above passage, I think this law that says if one doesn’t have a son, he will not be entitle to any inheritance is very wrong. Even till now this situation still exist in some culture. It has been there for many years and everybody keep following the same pattern and nobody is ready to correct it. My mum was very bright academically and her father could not send her to school not because of money bacuse by God’s grace he would have been able to but simply because she was a female child and it was believed according to culture that female children are not expected to go to school because when they marry they are out of their family. What an error! My mum told me that her teacher even came and pleaded for her father to allow her to go to school but he refused just because of culture and the believe system that operate in the area. But nowadays, things have changed.

I know of some families who don’t use to value female children. If a man passed away and he doesn’t have a male child, the treatment that will be given to the children will be as if he doesn’t have children. Are we in the position to choose the sex of the children we want? Yes, you might say Hannah prayed and asked God for a male child and she recieved it but remember that when we ask God for any blessing, He has the final say not we. Again your situation is not like that of Hannah and we are serving the same God who never change. As we pray, we have to always know the motive behind what we are asking God for. If we ask God for a blessing to shame others and not to glorify His name, I am afraid such prayer will not be answered because our God is not an author of confussion.

No matter what is happening in the family and it doesn’t matter how long it has been there, God has given us the authority to speak against it. We have the power to change any condition that does not give glory to God. Zelophehad’s children rose up and spoke and God heard them and that brought a change and a decree was given to Moses that changed the situation forever. God brought you through that family you came from and He expect you to change the evil pattern and things that doesn’t give Him glory in your family and He is waiting for your request. Why don’t you wake up today and take up the mantle and speak.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for the authority You have given to us to speak. Give us the grace to recognise those things that does not give You glory in our families so that we can bring it before the feet of Jesus and You will effect a change and at the end the glory will be given unto You in the name of Jesus Christ.

Overflowing Love

Overflowing Love

Pure Glory

by Hazel Straub

God pours his love into us. In order for this love to stay vibrant, we must pour it back to God, in worship, and let it overflow out of our lives into others. All of this increases our capacity to receive more of God’s love and to share it!

Those who are loved by God, let his love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of him.The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love. (1 John 4:7-8 TPT)

Love

Faith Matters: Love | ksqd.orgFrom: https://ksqd.org

What is love?

According to Cambridge dictionary, love can be defined as an intense feeling of deep affection. Love is when you choose to be at your best even if the other person is not at their best. Furthermore, love is when what you want is never important but rather what the other person want or needs is more important. When you are love with somebody, you will always want to be with the person.

According to the bible, love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, always hopes, always perseveres – 1 Corinthians 13 : 4 – 7.

That is the type of love that God has for us which make Him to be very patient with us no matter what we do. I have come accross many people who always say that this person is known for doing bad and God still permits the person to live and continue doing the bad the person is known for. No matter our error or mistakes, God’s love is greater. He bestowed such a great love on us even when we don’t merit it. He destroyed the world with flood in Genesis 7:1-24 when Noah was six hundred years of age. You see many people today when you talked to them about Christ, they will say that they have been in the church ever since they were born and yet they are not yet up to hundred years. Noah was six hundred and he was still following God’s command and that will be a topic for another day.

In Genesis 9:11 The bible says that God made a covenant with Noah that He will never again destroy the earth with flood. While? Because of love.

TYPES OF LOVE

Eros love (1 Corinthians 7:7-8): This comes from a Greek word ”erotas” which means intimate, sexual or romantic love. This type of love has to do with physical attraction.

Phileo love (Mark 12:31): This is brotherly love. Many people viewed phileo love as the ideal love. It is about showing loyalthy, giving sacrifice and showing an appreciation. According to Aristotle, he highlited that a person can feel philia towards someone for one of three reasons: that the person is pleasant; that the person is useful and that the person is good. He explained further that one must feel love for themselve before being able to feel love for others. Some other people feel that the best philia love is the one that grows from eros.

Storge love (Exodus 20:12; 1John 4:16): This is the type of love that exist between parents and children.

Agape love (1 John 4:8; John 13:34-35; Romans 5:8; John 3:16): This type of love is universal and charirtable. This is God’s kind of love. This is the love we have inside that we give freely to others regardless of our relationship with them. The idea of this type of love is that you don’t need to know or have met the other person before but still you want to help him or her, cooperate with them or do something good with them or towards them. Where this kind of love exist, we will always tell the truth to the other person, we will laways respect the person, we will always obey the person, we will always be patient with the person, we will always forgive the person no matter the error, we will always want to hear from the person and know his or her wellbeing, we will always want to appreciate what the person is doing. (To be continued.)

Prayer: Thank You Lord for your great love that You have bestowed on me and my family. Give us the grace to show love to others as You have shown to us no matter what they done to us in the name of Jesus christ.

SOLOMON’S DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD

osarobohenry

No matter the level God has taken us to, we should always try to be obedient children of God. Disobedience will always take us far from God and Jesus Christ has come to reconcile us and bring us close to God whether we like it or not God is closer to us more than we can imagine.

When the Lord your God brings you into the land which you go to possess and has cast out many nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Cannanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jabusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you and when the Lord your God delivers them over to you, you shall conquer them and utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant with them nor show mercy to them. Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your…
