2012-10-22 - What Would Zebulun Say?
Zebulun will live by the seashore and become a haven for ships; his border will extend toward Sidon. (Genesis 49:13)
I was quite special to Leah, my mother. Although I was her sixth son; mother thanked God for me, her extraordinary gift. It is a good thing I don't mind the water, for my father Jacob tells me I will live by the seas and be a harbor for ships. Dad had trust in me to be responsible.
I was thankful I had a promising future. I was not going to spend my life idling by or as a loafer. I would have a purpose and be a provider, a helpmate, and refuge for people. My father shared his knowledge of the dependable tides and rhythmic waves.
I like predictability. It can be soothing. I am looking forward to what the seas can teach me. It is a place where I can't be compared to my brothers; it will set me apart. I will have a chance to succeed.
Lord, May I enjoy all my days on Earth. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
