As the Israelites marched into the Promised Land, God had a specified order for each tribe as they moved forward. This order reveals keys that each of us needs to incorporate into our life to reach our destiny.
Levi, which means connect, was the foundation stone of God's plan. This tribe was placed at the center protected by all the other tribes as Israel advanced. Similarly, our connections to God through faith in Jesus' death and resurrection need to be centrally located and protected. Our life needs to revolve around Bible study, church attendance and other divine connections.
Most Christians know that Judah means praise and was out front but few know that Naphtali, which means warfare, was placed last. With this order God identifies warfare at the rearguard as critical in reaching destiny. The need for prayer covering while new territory is being taken cannot be emphsized enough.
The book, Keys To Destiny, expands on this theme. Lastly, Craig Dressler is available for speaking engagements and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
