The Family Song

Those who know my family from way back then, will remember this song that my dad used to love so much. The song went something like this: “There’s never been a day like this day, to me, there’s never been a day like this day to me, there’s never been a light that shineth so bright like this day, this glorious day…” my dad would sing this song all the time, and he would make us sing this song all the time… Today, I have my own reason to sing this song… I surely hope that you catch this revelation too…

The Lord brought to my attention three passages in the scriptures, and we all know them. The first one being Gen 1:16 “God made the two great lights--the greater light to have dominion over the day and the lesser light to have dominion over the night--as well as the stars.” (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

The second scripture is Gen 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth” (King James Version).

The third scripture in Joshua 10:12-14 “On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to the Israelites, Joshua spoke to the LORD in the presence of Israel:" Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and moon, over the Valley of Aijalon." And the sun stood still and the moon stopped until the nation took vengeance on its enemies. Isn't this written in the Book of Jashar? So the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed its setting almost a full day.

In verse 14 (where my dad’s favourite song is from) the scripture says ”There has never been a day like it before or since, when the LORD listened to the voice of a man, because the LORD was fighting on behalf of Israel.”

I’m here to say to you that not only is the Lord listening to the voice of His children, but He is also expanding your authority or dominion. The sun and moon were created before man and given dominion over the day and the night. Joshua dared to reach beyond his sphere of dominion, see man was given dominion over the earth, and the fish and the birds, cattle etc.. it’s like this, man was destined to be a farmer, but on that day Joshua reached for the stars and became an astronaut.

The Lord is doing a new level of miracle in His children's lives. He is answering unusual prayers. He is changing the rules of the universe to allow His children to claim their victory and vengeance over their enemies. Some of you were destined for bankruptcy, some for chemotherapy, some miscarriage, some even for death… Believe it in your heart that you have overcome, take some time out of your day today and thank Jehovah for He is fighting for you, and He says to you today "fear them not, for I have delivered them into thine hand".

My Peace I Give you - Shalom
