The name Judah means “praise.” Later, when the Hebrews were returning to Canaan, they went up by tribe. When they had to fight and when it was time to conquer Canaan, God told them to send the tribe of Judah first, see Numbers 2:3, 9; Judges 1:1, 2; 20:18.

Genesis 46:28, “As they neared their destination, Jacob sent Judah ahead to meet Joseph and get directions to the land of Goshen….” New Living Translation

Whether you are going through a trial, (here it was a famine), or you are facing a battle, start with praise! Send Judah first!

Dear Father God,

Thank You for the reminder to start everything with praise. I am grateful that I am not enduring a famine, but these allergies are frustrating. Help me to do my best today even though I am battling them.

In Jesus Name,
