Still taking study on one of the sons of Jacob who did what was expected of him in the sight of God, Moses blesses him and as many that bears name with him. Amen. Levi who was recorded the third son of Jacob as recorded in Exodus chapter 1, received from the Lord through Moses the blessings which is his birthright as given by the Lord. He was never distracted neither contending unnecessarily nor was he careless about his God designed destiny. Moses account of him was just who is expected to be focused and steadfast in the presence of God. Halleluyah!
"8 And of Levi he said, Give your Thummim to Levi and let the Urim be with your loved one, whom you put to the test at Massah, with whom you were angry at the waters of Meribah;
9 Who said of his father, Who is he? and of his mother, I have not seen her; he kept himself separate from his brothers and had no knowledge of his children: for they have given ear to your word and kept your agreement.
10 They will be the teachers of your decisions to Jacob and of your law to Israel: the burning of perfumes before you will be their right, and the ordering of burned offerings on your altar.
11 Let your blessing, O Lord, be on his substance, may the work of his hands be pleasing to you: may those who take up arms against him and all who have hate for him, be wounded through the heart, never to be lifted up again. Deuteronomy 33:8-11 (BBE)
Brethren this is just one of many that never look down on there life privileges, they refuse to despise there birthright rather accept there fate and love everything about themselves. The understand being a Levite is not a crime though the Lord said they should not be given any inheritance but to live on gift from their siblings. Instead of rebelling they enjoyed every gift and become steadfast on a regular base to the mandate entrusted to their care.
This reminds me of the admonition of Paul to his apostolic son Timothy "But godliness with contentment is great gain." 1 Timothy 6:6 (AKJV). This is an admonition to us as well brethren that we should be contended with what we have so that we will not fall victim of circumstance. Amen. May not fall to the hands of the enemy in the good name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Brethren be contended with what you have and ensure you are focused with God in your daily dealings. May the Lord help you to be contended with all you have in Jesus name name. Amen. I that the spirit of steadfastness be added to you in Jesus name. Amen. You will not be misled with the spirit of selfishness which is the cause of most failures in Jesus name. Amen.
I pray for grace to overcome all unseen fears, anxieties, contentions, lust and everyother that can lead you to despising your future in Christ Jesus name. Amen.
Good morning and remain blessed.
