Dream With GOD
Day 38 – Dare To Dream:
If you could do anything for the Kingdom of God and you knew that you could not fail, what great thing would you do for the Kingdom?”
Today, let us look at the lives of an extraordinary group of women. The daughters of Zelophehad found in (Numbers 27:1-11).
The daughters of Zelophehad were women who had no rights in a patriarchal society. Their father died and left no son as an heir. Their father’s kinsmen would have inherited land that rightfully belonged to them. Therefore, the daughters of Zelophehad took their request for inheritance to Moses.
It is epic that these women had the chutzpah to approach Moses with their revolutionary request. What’s even more beautiful is that the favor of God was with them. “The daughters of Zelophehad approached Moses saying, “Our Father was not of those who banded together against ADONAI in the wilderness. Our father died in his own sins; and he left no sons. Let not our father’s inheritance be lost because he had no son. Give us an equal inheritance amongst our brethren.” (Numbers 27:1-5)
In all of Israel, no woman had ever made such an appeal. However, we are most courageous when we have nothing to lose. James 4:2b says, “You do not have because you do not ask.”
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, the daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father’s brethren; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them.”
I am encouraged that the daughters of Zelophehad had the chutzpah to approach Moses with their revolutionary request. What is even more impressive is that Father God took notice of the daughters of Zelophehad and His FAVOR was with them. Favor is permission to dream BIG “God” dreams.”
The enemy can see in us what we fail to see in ourselves. There may be some reading this article that feel as if they should be further along in life than they are now. Truthfully speaking, there are spiritual forces consistently working to hinder our progress. The enemy makes it his mission to keep us from experiencing the fullness that God has promised us.
Favor becomes our anchor when warfare contends with our promise, and discouragement comes to unseat us from our place of radical favor.”
It takes COURAGE to walk with God. It’s not easy being a revolutionary. Yet, the daughters of Zelophehad: Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah would have had it no other way. These women should inspire us to dream BIGGER! The daughters of Zelophehad not only achieved tremendous personal success, they shaped history, and forever changed the law of inheritance concerning women in Israel. How’s that for COURAGE! Just because something has not yet been done, does not mean that it can not be achieved! God wants to DREAM through us so that He can establish His will on the earth.
God heard the request of the daughters of Zelophehad. God turned His attention towards their DREAMS. God granted their requests. Our Father loves to prove Himself STRONG in the lives of His children. All we have to do is ask.
Beloveds, I dare you to dream. I dare you to dream BIG “God” dreams. God’s favor is with you! God is searching for those who are willing to dream with Him. God will give you dreams to dream and will fulfill them. What BIG dreams has God shown you? What BIG things are you asking God to do for you?”
