And of Zebulun he said:
“Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out,
And Issachar in your tents!
The voice of rejoicing and salvation
Is in the tents of the righteous;
The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
Today’s opening Scripture reveals the tribal inheritances of Zebulun and Issachar in Israel. It says, rejoice Zebulun in your going out; and Issachar, in your tents. Combining both blessings or inheritances of Zebulun and of Issachar, there is rejoicing going out and coming in; rejoicing in the field and in the tents, rejoicing every day and everywhere. The Word tells us in Philippians 4:4 to rejoice in the Lord always. Evidently, it is God’s will for us to rejoice going out and coming in. When we are out in the field, the lot or portion of Zebulun is ours. Why? We are the seed of Abraham by faith in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:29). Zebulun and Issachar were children of Jacob, and Jacob was a child of Isaac, and Isaac was a child of Abraham. Therefore, Zebulun and Issachar were the seed of Abraham after the flesh. When we are at home, the lot of Issachar is ours. Joy has become our unmistakable characteristic identification in life. Hallelujah!!! The Word tells us, rejoice Zebulun in your going out, and Issachar, in your tents! That’s a prophetic word dictating or commanding the trend of events to be consistent with the melody and rhythm of joy, which means that God has commanded our going out and our coming in to be of joy and to respond to joy. Your joy has been commanded and prophesied by the Word of the Lord in your going out and coming in; therefore, nothing can break your joy!
Your physical location per time is always that you are either at home in your tent or you are out there doing something. So, in going out, there is rejoicing for you according to the lot of Zebulun, and in your coming in, there is rejoicing for you according to the lot of Issachar. Either way or both ways, there is rejoicing for you! Therefore, your going out and your coming in is blessed. Whether you are indoors or outdoors, your rejoicing is secure, and your joy is established. Psalms 118:15 says, “The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous.” This is God’s will for you. The Lord has declared it that joy is your portion. The Word of the Lord stands fast and is established in your case. Weeping is far away from you; sorrow is gone from you, and everlasting joy is upon your head. Be conscious of this truth and apply yourself to it every day. Keep rejoicing!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION)
I declare in the Name of Jesus Christ that joy is my portion. Weeping is far from me, and with my eyes shall I see and behold the reward of the wicked, but it shall not come near me. I am established in righteousness and I am far from oppression. Hallelujah! Amen.
