S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
So the Lord said to Moses, “Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit of leadership, and lay your hand on him.”
The Lord had told Moses that his time was at an end. The first thought Moses had was not for his life, but for his successor. He didn’t want the people of Israel to be like sheep without a shepherd. God said, “Take Joshua because he has a Spirit Of Leadership.”
There’s a lot of good people out there who are good at caring for those under their authority. However, there comes a point when people need more than care, they really need leadership. Leadership is more than just getting people to follow you, it’s about actually taking them somewhere. Certainly Joshua cared for the people of Israel, but he’s not known for caring. He’s known for conquering Canaan. If you’re ready to conquer, ask God for “The Spirit Of Leadership.”
I’ll never stop needing “The Spirit Of Leadership.” Help me this AM to remember that I can’t take anyone to Canaan without it. Amen
