“The LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them.” (Numbers 23:21)
My dear friend today’s promise is found in Numbers 23:21. The second portion says, “The LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them.” The Lord your God is with you. Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. There are more with you than the ones who are with the people who are up against you to destroy you. The great God is with you. What does he do? He shouts out in favour of you. In Zephaniah 3:15-17, The Bible says, the king goes before you, he is with you; He rejoices over you with singing and says you are His beloved child and he is pleased with you. In verse 19, the scripture says: “In the same land where you have gone through shame, he will give you praise and honour.” God is with you as a king to turn all your shame into praise and honour.
You read about the shout of the king in favour of the people in two places. In Genesis 26:28, you can see Isaac being chased by Abimelech, the king of the area where Isaac was living; and he was trying to destroy everything that Isaac was doing; when Isaac was digging wells this people came and closed the wells. The king wanted to destroy his family life too, of course out of ignorance. Isaac faced much sorrow, but he went on sowing and planting according to the command of the Lord. God gave 100 times returns. When he dug wells, the water flowed. When the enemies tried to do the same thing, they could not find water. In Genesis 26:28, the enemy said: we saw clearly the Lord is with you, so make a treaty with us so that you will not destroy us. The king and his people were afraid of Isaac, who was just living there. Enemies saw God was with him and he was prospering. This is God’s promise to you. In whatever you do, God will bless and prosper you hundred times. Even kings will come and make a treaty with you and acknowledge that the shout of the king is with you.
Secondly, in Genesis 41:38, Pharaoh the King of Egypt bowed before the slave Joseph and said the spirit of God was in him. Joseph was only a slave but through the power of the Holy Spirit, he could tell Pharaoh what was coming to the kingdom of Egypt. The king’s shout went out and said God’s spirit is in this man and the king made him the ruler of Egypt. God will lift you up also through the shout of the king of the world as he shouts and rejoices over you. May God bless you with this blessing.
My loving heavenly father,
I want to hear the shout of the King of kings before me and surrender my life. Let me experience this blessing and grace. Lift me up to great heights and prosper me.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
