What’s interesting is that although the 12 tribes were looked at as a unit called “The Children of Israel” (for us its the Superfamily), each tribe had its own distinction based on the giftings and talents of the founding member of that tribe. For example, the most well-known two are the tribes of Levi and the tribe of Judah. The Levitical tribe is where the priests came from and the Tribe of Judah is known for the “praisers”. If you were of the tribe of Levi…your expectations were that you would have an empowerment to carry the office of priest. You lived it, you were preparing for it. The tribe of
was the same. If you were a child that
was a descendant of Judah, it was expected that you knew how to usher in the
presence of God with spiritual songs and praise. But EVERY tribe had the
blessing of Abraham. Judah
Each of our children carry a uniqueness that is defined by the calling and gifting of myself, my husband and what God has called them to do individually. However, there are some empowerments, anointings and blessings that we are speaking over them and into them that they are to spread down into their “tribe”.
Think about it: What are you telling your children that they are and what they can do? What are you speaking in their spirit and having them say out of their mouths? What blessing are you preparing as a legacy for them and your heirs?? Don't just rattle off something..fast/pray about it and turn it over for awhile and then when God gives the green light on your proclaimation..start ta' speaking!
