Two Minute Truth

Daily Devotional with Pastor Jon

February 5

The sixth lot came out to the children of Naphtali, even for the children of Naphtali according to their families.

Joshua 19:32

The inheritance of Zebulun and Naphtali is called “the Galilee of the Gentiles” in Matthew 4. Throughout Israel’s history, Zebulun and Naphtali were always being beat up because the enemies of Israel - the Babylonians, the Assyrians, the Greeks, the Persians, and the Romans - came from the north. Consequently, Zebulun and Naphtali resided in “the Galilee of the Gentiles” because Gentiles resided there ultimately.

Isaiah prophesied that the land of Zebulun and Naphtali would see a great Light (Isaiah 9:1-2). Indeed, those who were depressed, in bondage, and under attack were those who saw a great Light because where did Jesus base His ministry? Where did He spend virtually all of His time except when He traveled to Jerusalem? Galilee. You might be in the dark today - depressed and beat up. If so, you’re just the person the Lord especially wants to visit. If you’re in a place of being wiped out, understand that it was the people who sat in great darkness who saw a great, great Light (Matthew 4:13-16).
