Day Twenty - Prayer and Rescue

We are raising four daughters. This Journey is not for the faint hearted. My second daughter, who is open to people knowing a little more about her private world, has been in a very dark place over the last few years and we have seen psychiatrists, doctors, therapists and are processing years of trauma that has been held in her beautiful mind. And w ware holding on tightly. The world that they live in, the conversations they are having, the opinions they form from google and social media, the unrelenting onslaught of the world around them .. it is a constant battle to contend for kingdom of heaven on their earth. And do it all with love, grace, and ultimately heart connection.

There are 366 scriptures that speak about inheritance in the Bible. And I often replace them with the word Legacy. It means the same thing in scripture. My forty days of focus on this over the years took me through a few of these scriptures and I could have gone on for the rest of the year (and probably will at some point).

This man we referred to earlier in the blogs Abram, was the first man to really bring the word inheritance before the Lord. God had promised Abram a ‘land’ to go and possess and children who would live in that land.

He had begun his journey to that promised land with his nephew Lot but as they

were all growing as a community there wasn’t enough room for them to continue travelling together so they went their separate ways.

In Genesis 14 Abram heard that his nephew had been captured in a town called Sodom. So Abram took 3 ALLIES WITH HIM to go and rescue his family. He also took with him 318 SERVANTS with him to fight against the enemy. He brought back his family, all the women and children, the possessions, the goods.

Abram knew the promises of God for inheritance and land had been a promise

for his family too. So even though his family ended up somewhere that was so

destructive and was holding them captive, Abram refused to let them die there.

I love that these daughters of Z teach us (years on in scripture) the same principal. The inheritance they were fighting for was not just for them but for their family and all those still to come.
