Bible Reading: Joshua 9:3-6
📖3….”And when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done unto Jericho and to Ai,
📖4….They did work wilily, and went and made as if they had been ambassadors, and took old sacks upon their asses, and wine bottles, old, and rent, and bound up;
📖5….And old shoes and clouted upon their feet, and old garments upon them; and all the bread of their provision was dry and mouldy.
📖6….And they went to Joshua unto the camp at Gilgal, and said unto him, and to the men of Israel, We be come from a far country: now therefore make ye a league with us.”
🔥The Gibeonites went and subjected themselves under Israel, because they observed that there must be a force that was working and walking with the Jews. They knew how powerful Jericho and Ai were, yet Israel conquered them. So, to be on the safe side, they decided to enter into a covenant of peace with them, so that whatever force or God that was divinely protecting the Jews, would also protect and defend them. That ought to also be the reason for becoming a Christian; to dwell in God’s secret place, so as to abide under His shadow…Psalms 91:1. The attitude of the Gibeonites, turned them into God’s divine projects.
🔥🔥To become God’s divine project, is not to desire bread from God or the Church, but just for divine protection. Just like Abraham became a Hebrew (Gen 14:13), to become God’s divine project, so we must become the New Testament kind of Hebrew called Christlike, to become a divine project in God’s hands. Once you cross over to God’s side, you will be hated and forsaken by many, but God won’t. Instead, once you are forsaken by men, you become God’s divine project; like Leah in Gen 29:17. Even though Joseph was hated by his brothers and lied against by Potiphar’s wife, he became God’s divine project even in the prison.
🔥🔥🔥Beloved children of God, even if men of timber and caliber are trying to cut your life short, as David tried to do to Obededom, because of your commitment to God, He will turn you to a divine project as He promoted Obededom to, in 2 Sam 6:6-12. In Isaiah 53:2, the family of David was recorded to have lost all glory, and it became a proverb of no hope, in John 1:46. Yet God chose the same family to make a divine project from, by raising Jesus Christ from there. God is still raising men from obscure families to divine projects. Trust God like Hannah, and become the next divine project of God.
🙏Heavenly father, as the Gibeonites found rest under the Jews, may I find rest and peace under you, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, cross me by your grace to the place where you will treat me as your divine project in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, raise me from a nonentity to your personal project, that must not be abandoned, in Jesus’ name.
