"Excuse Me, I Believe That's Mine"

Numbers 27:4, "Why should the name of our father be removed from among his family because he had no son? Give us a possession among our father's brothers."

Numbers 27, discusses the 5 daughters of Zelophehad who made their petition to Moses concerning their inheritance. It was custom during their time for inheritance to be carried down from male to male, however under the law that God had entrusted to Moses, they were rightfully entitled to their blessing according to the Word of God-not the words of man. Because the daughters came boldly to Moses with what the Word of God promised them, Moses was moved to present their petition to God. God told Moses that the daughters spoke rightly and ordered Moses to give them a possession of inheritance among their father's brothers and to ensure that the inheritance of their father was passed directly to them. The same protocol is applicable to us as heirs of the Kingdom of God. The daughters didn't come at Moses acting a fool nor did they curse him out. They brought the facts and requested what was rightfully theirs according to the Word of God. As Daughters and Sons of the King, we have access to our God through Jesus Christ and He is sitting at the right hand of our Father interceding on our behalf. Go boldly to the throne of grace and bring back to God's remembrance what you are entitled to as His Big Girl and Big Boy. The Bible says, no good thing will he uphold from those who walk uprightly in Him. We have to be in order and be confident in going forward to receive our blessings from God. Know that seeking God and your blessing is a process and you may have to wait on others to go before you, but in the end God will ensure that people are aligned to provide you with your provision directly. Be Blessed and Encouraged!

  1. I've been thinking so much on how not a sparrow falls from the sky without Him taking notice, and if He cares so for the sparrows how much more He cares for those created in His image, both male and female! I love you Krystal!
