S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites.
Moses had recently passed away at the top of Mt. Nebo. The people of Israel had mourned for thirty days, and the next thing we read is that God said to Joshua, “Moses is dead. Now gather these people together and head to the land I promised to give you.”
I’m always amazed when I read this passage, because arguably Moses was the greatest leader outside of Jesus in the history of the world. I dare say that a number of people would support my assumption. So here’s this amazing leader Moses, and as soon as he dies God is looking to the next leader. Whatever you may think of a certain great leader, it’s important to remember that “Time Stops For No One.” God has a plan for this world and each of us must be overjoyed that we get to share in a small part of it. There’s no need to ever get discouraged or wonder why you and I may not have a bigger part. Instead, we must be grateful for what part we do play in God’s big production. He has a purpose, and He certainly loves us all, but we won’t be here forever. You may be a small part of the puzzle as am I, but even if you’re Moses “Time Stops For No One.”
This AM I’m thinking of my friend who reads this short devotional. May they know that You love them and have a great plan for them, but even Moses passed on and someone else took his place. Help the two of us this AM to play our part wholeheartedly until you call us to heaven. Amen
