Day two (sending ahead of time for our Southern Hemisphere Sisterhood because it’s already Day Two for YOU!)
And Northern Hemisphere Girls you can wake to this blog each morning.
So did you dance in the rain barefoot or paint your footprints on some paper yesterday? Or if you live in the Southern Hemisphere then maybe you had the joy of ocean and sand (and we don’t envy you at all!!).
Some of us girls local to Montreal gathered and had a really special night with this revelation of groundedness and cherishing where our feet will take us. Check out my Instagram Stories for some pretty profound moments.
So today I want to introduce you to the ‘Daughters of Z’ just briefly (Check out my Instagram and FB Live for a short sermon introduction on these women) and then tomorrow we will talk about this incredible concept called our ’Holy Chutzpah’ that will help you take these steps into a new decade.
This story is found in Numbers 27 in the Bible and I read it a few years ago and felt like it was a profound word for women all over the
Zelophehad has five daughters, Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah (we will talk about these names in a few days); he has no sons.
Zelophehad is part of the generation of Israelites who departed from Egypt under Moses’ leadership and died during the forty years in the wilderness. His five daughters belong to the new generation that would enter and possess the promised land….. I love this ..
even as a daughter of wilderness you can take steps into your promise.
According to God’s command, the promised land is to be given only to those members counted in the census recorded in Numbers 26 (see 26:55-56). Since only men were counted in the census it meant that Zelophehad’s daughters would be left without an inheritance.
Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah step forward to appeal this regulation, stating their case in front of the sacred tent of meeting in the presence of Moses, Eleazar the priest, the leaders, and indeed the whole community (Num 27:2). They argue that their
father’s name (lineage) should not be cut off from his clan just because he had no son and that they should be permitted to inherit
his land portion (v. 4) in order to avoid this potential injustice to their father’s name (and property).
