As I was reading this chapter I got a little bored. . . . reading names is just not my thing; but then I read from another devotional about some meanings of some in the names of the chapter and this is what I found:
The son of Uzzi was Izrahiah. The sons of Izrahiah were Michael, Obadiah, Joel, and Isshiah. These five became the leaders of clans. All of them had many wives and many sons, so the total number of men available for military service among their descendants was 36,000. The total number of mighty warriors from all the clans of the tribe of Issachar was 87,000. All of them were listed in their genealogical records. (1 Chronicles 7:3-5)
There are different roles in the family. We all play important parts in the family. We might not be the strongest (emotionally or physically;) we might be the “weak” in the family or we might be the strong one–the one everyone wonders if we have any emotion. And what I found I liked is that we are warriors. No matter what has happened and what will happen we have/will get through it because we are fighters and we get our strength from the One who has all the strength in the world and that is God. What I also like is that we are all part of a bigger body (family.) We might be separated now and don’t know who our whole family is, but when we get to heaven we will get to meet all of our family. I sure hope I get to see all of you who are reading this. Stay strong and even when you think that you have no more strength, just ask God and He will help you. 🙂
God bless and have a great day:)
