Bold Beauties…

Have you heard about the daughters of Zelophehad? You can read about them in Numbers 27. These bold beauties were at risk of losing their land due to their father’s death and the fact that he had no sons. They would have to give their father’s land to his brothers, their uncles. This was the law of the land at the time. Essentially these sisters bucked against the system and pursued the land for themselves. And long story short, they won and changed history.

Sisters, our boldness doesn’t end there. Your stance can change history. When we choose to stand against tradition, and pursue the will of the Father-we, too, can change history. We too are bold beauties! Maybe you aren’t fighting for your father’s inheritance but you see wrong occurring at your child’s school. Maybe you see injustice in your community. Perhaps you recognize outdated traditions in your church. It is time to stand boldly for the glory of God!

We are commanded to come before the throne of grace-boldly!

It’s time to stand boldly our beautiful sister and change the course of history and break the bondage of tradition! It’s time to walk right up to the throne to pursue the will of God! You are a trailblazer!

The daughters of Zelophehad simply wanted a place to live. Their stance received the approval of the Father. Perhaps He was waiting for someone to change the tradition of the times, He was waiting for someone to say “yes Lord, I will go!” He is waiting for you to say “yes Lord, I will go!” He’s waiting to you to speak up, He is waiting for you to have that courageous conversation!

The enemy will tell you, your voice doesn’t matter and he is a liar. Your voice matters and your boldness matters!

Be bold beauty, you can change the course of history!

Peace and Blessings

HIStory…

The books of Chronicles are pretty interesting. It features a recount of Israel’s history and it highlights the actions of the kings of Israel. For some, it highlights their love for the Lord, their victories, and challenges that they had to overcome. For others, it highlighted their evils, their struggles, and their fall and demise. Why some stories are shape a specific way and why others are not is just the way the Holy Spirit pressed upon the writer of the books.

Their stories became shaped by HIStory.

Typically, those who “did right in the eyes of Lord His God” often times had their strengths highlighted and their victories noted. Those who did not, did not.

How will your story be penned? This is an important consideration. While our stories won’t be featured in the Holy Word, our stories will be recalled as we approach our Savior. Our children and grandchildren will hear the victories and challenges, the triumphs and the trials. Just as the kings of Israel, our stories will extend beyond our lives. How will your story be told?

Did you overcome? Did you tear down the high places that tried to place themselves above the Lord? Did you fall before the Lord to praise and worship Him? Did you know the commandments? Did you live them? How will your storyteller tell your story?

Will HISTory prevail? Consider the exhortation from the Word of God:

He has a story written for you already! In His story, you are the victor! In His story, you are more than a conqueror. In His story, you are fearfully and wonderfully made! HIStory features a Savior who loved you so much that He died for you! HIStory features your purpose, your mission and His plans for your life! And when it is all over, HIStory features your eternal resting place. HIStory positions you for a powerful legacy and lasting influence.

All of our lives will be chronicled, how will yours be told?

Peace and Blessings
