Now Joshua the son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; and the sons of Israel listened to him and did as the Lord had commanded Moses. Since that time no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face. Deuteronomy 34:9-10
There really has been no one like Moses since. Even though Moses passed the baton to Joshua, he was a different leader. It would be he and not Moses to enter the promised land. God was gracious to Moses to show Him what was promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But, that lack of faith and disobedience at the Rock would not be overlooked by God. Moses died looking at what God had planned for the generations to follow. Moses was a type of Christ. A forerunner to the greatest prophet – Jesus.
Am I preparing people around me to receive the baton of ministry that I am leading? Are there Joshua’s around me that are filled with the spirit of wisdom? Am I empowering them?
God, You are so gracious to let us see what You have planned and often enter in as well. Thank you for the calling You have upon my life. Help me be faithful like Moses. I want to be obedient and available for Your miracle working power to flow through me for Your glory.
