Getting what you want (2)

“The daughters of Zelophehad…stood before Moses.”

Nu 27:1-2 NKJV

The daughters of Zelophehad teach us that we must: (1) Be willing to do something about it. Complaining doesn’t change anything; it just makes you more miserable. With millions of people entering the Promised Land, other women were in the same predicament. But nothing changed until these five women became proactive and refused to accept the status quo. That took courage. Going before Moses was like appealing to the Supreme Court. Solutions are found when you decide to face your problems head-on and do something about them. (2) Be clear about what you want. What do you want to happen, or stop happening? When you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there; you must have a clear goal in mind. These women believed they were entitled to the same blessing the male members of their family received, and they refused to settle for less. As a result, God gave it to them. And He will do the same for you. “Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart” (Gal 6:9 NKJV). (3) Refuse to be deterred by opinions, policies, and traditions. Under the law of Moses women weren’t even numbered as part of the congregation (See Nu 26). Can you imagine the shape the church would be in if we still lived by that policy today? Many times in the Scripture God altered “the norm” in response to bold faith, and changed the destiny of those individuals. And what He did for them, He will do for you.

So true, most times the women are the ones who intercedes for the husbands, or encourage to work on a problem. Praise be to God.
