“And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses” (Deuteronomy 34:9).Text — Deuteronomy 34:5-12
James Dobson stated, “It isn’t important that I be remembered. It’s important that when I stand before the Lord, he says, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’ I want to finish strong.” Under the leadership of Moses, Joshua discharged his duties so faithfully that Moses “laid his hands upon him” and God filled him with His Spirit of wisdom. Consequently, when he assumed the mantle of leadership after Moses, he prospered in ministry. His leadership was so unique that the people of Israel were obedient to him.
Dear Christian friend, the leaders of tomorrow in any field begin preparation today as diligent and faithful servants. That was the secret ingredient in the success story of Joseph, Joshua and Samuel. They all shone in character, learning and diligence, as they rendered their services. You can also serve in any department in your school or Church. Identifying our specific ministry on conversion is important; more important, however, is our ability to stay humble and faithful that we may be appropriately rewarded at the end. You can become another Joshua if you wish.
You can also serve
Fulfill your ministry faithfully.
Prayer for today
Keep me focused and faithful, Oh Lord.
