TOPIC: Your Case Will Break Protocol (TREM Devotional 16 June 2021)

“And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out; and she said, how hast thou broken forth? This breach be upon thee; therefore, his name was called Pharez.” Genesis 38:29 KJV

According to the account in the book of Genesis 37, Judah erroneously slept with Tamar, his daughter-in-law and she gave birth to Perez and Zerah. The Bible says it was Zerah who first brought out his hand. The nurse tied the scarlet thread on his hand and said Zerah was the first baby but when he pulled back his hand, Perez from nowhere came out first. Perez broke protocol and became number one.

Beloved, I declare that you are taking the first place. They will not notice you coming but they will just see you arrive suddenly. You will emerge from the back. You will pursue, overtake and recover all. Henceforth, refuse to see yourself as ordinary. When you go to the exam hall, know that you will pass. Whether they like it or not, know that you will succeed. When you go to your marketplace, know that you will sell. You will build that house. You will drive that car. You will go on vacation abroad.

1 Chronicles 4:9-10 talks about a man called Jabez from the tribe of Judah. His entire family members were nobodies. They were not honorable but stranded people. Nothing good came from that family. Even his name was called “sorrowful” but I perceive he got to know that this was not God’s plan. So, Jabez changed the rule. He said: “Lord I don’t want to end like my brethren. Bless me indeed! I don’t want an ordinary blessing. For too long, I have not been able to speak for myself but when you are now ready to bless me, bless me with the blessing that will speak for me. Enlarge my coast, lengthen my cords and preserve me from evil.” Then God answered him. That same God will answer you. He will change your story. Just like Jabez, you too will testify to the glory of God.
