Click here to listen: The Character of Petition
The daughters of Zelophehad appear in Numbers 27:1-11 as the daughters of ordained separation (Joseph > Manasseh > Machir > Gilead > Hepher > Zelophehad) and their experience turns the tide for the family.
About the daughters of Zelophehad:
- They were legitimate because their lineage was traceable to Manasseh.
- They were orderly in their approach. They followed protocol and did not create a stir.
- They were brave. This is the true nature of petition; it takes boldness.
Governing Principles for this Lesson:
- The royal character of petition asks for the need in the time the need is being met.
- It does not take faith to petition in a time when petitions are being granted; it takes boldness.
- Sometimes we can hide behind believing God instead of asking for what is available.
- Humility works with the character of petition.
- When it comes to petition, possession is active. (Example: A closed mouth does not get fed. A watched pot never boils.)
- Someone has to be first.
- The character of petition seeks possession, or the capture of a right or benefit.
