DCLM Every day Manna 9 July 2022 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — When Man’s Historical past Doesn’t Assist
TOPIC: When Man’s Historical past Doesn’t Assist (DCLM Every day Manna 9 July 2022)
TEXT: Joshua 19:17-23 (KJV)
17 And the fourth lot got here out to Issachar, for the youngsters of Issachar in line with their households.
18 And their border was towards Jezreel, and Chesulloth, and Shunem,
19 And Haphraim, and Shihon, and Anaharath,
20 And Rabbith, and Kishion, and Abez,
21 And Remeth, and Engannim, and Enhaddah, and Bethpazzez;
22 And the coast reacheth to Tabor, and Shahazimah, and Bethshemesh; and the outgoings of their border had been at Jordan: sixteen cities with their villages.
23 That is the inheritance of the tribe of the youngsters of Issachar in line with their households, the cities and their villages.
KEY VERSE: “That is the inheritance of the tribe of the youngsters of Issachar in line with their households, the cities and their villages.” – (Joshua 19:23)
The descendants of Issachar, Jacob’s fifth son, had been reputed to own the uncommon reward of “understanding of the occasions, to know what Israel must do” (1 Chronicles 12:32). The Israelites counted on Issachar to interpret the indicators of the occasions to information them in obeying the Lord. By the point Joshua was allotting lands to the twelve tribes of Israel, the youngsters of Issachar had been gifted extra blessings of their allotted territories with wealthy historical past.
Issachar’s lot harboured notable locations of historical past. One was Jezreel, by which Ahab had his palace. One other was Shunem, the scene of nice miracles by Prophet Elisha. Then, there was the River Kishon. It was on its banks Deborah and Barak defeated Sisera, the enemy of Israel. This lot additionally produced the mountains of Gilboa, the place Saul and Jonathan had been slain.
However, alas, these vibrant antecedents didn’t translate into wealthy religious prowess for the latter generations of the tribe of Issachar. Their borders bought them near the cultures and teachings of the heathen whose unusual philosophies are alien to the legal guidelines of Jehovah. The tribe of Issachar prospered materially, however bought misplaced spiritually.
The tragedy of man immediately, like Issachar centuries in the past, is that he’s simply moved by that which might make him to be recognised by man’s historical past books and never God’s ebook of life. Heaven will recognise solely those that aspire to make historical past in God’s information by means of meekness in His service, not those that search private glory right here on earth.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
It’s God’s narrative that counts, not man’s.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
- I reward you Lord for my tribe and her divinely imparted blessings.
- Lord, let these presents and blessings be manifesting in my life.
- Lord, I hereby separate from each affect and dominion of evil territorial spirits of my tribe by your grace and energy.
- Lord, let the life-style, the tradition and the glory of Christ be manifesting within the lives of your youngsters.
HYMN: Let others see Jesus in you.(GHS 49)
