Bible Reading: Num. 27:18-22
Text: Num. 27:18
And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him.
Stewardship is not slavery, it is one of the ways of the Lord for making everyone he intends to use be under another who had gone higher in the chosen office of the Lord for such individual.
Stewardship is a mentoring stage for any privileged individual.
Joshua had earlier in his life discovered the purpose of the Lord for his life. Also, through the guidance of the Spirit of God, he knew the kind of person Moses was to be to him. He knew that Moses had a great role to play in his life for him to get it right where several of his contemporaries would fail.
He also knew the dos and don’ts for him to fulfill destiny. He was ready to give whatever it would take for him not to miss his purpose.
Joshua never followed the multitude against the plan of God for his life. He believed and followed to detail the instruction of the Lord through the life of Moses without complaining.
He built himself a good name through his stewardship. He was a man that every individual wanted around them because he always delivered beyond expectation.
He never pretended or deceived his master. Joshua was truly a leader and a good steward to be reckoned with because he was an embodiment of faithfulness, faith and hard work.
Having mentors over one’s life, ministry, career and marriage is a great advantage to whoever that knows it.
I read God’s General and picked some personalities to follow and cultivate their manner of life, though most of these people are late, their work is still speaking.
Stewardship is a stage of learning, preparation for the desired change in your ministry and a time to pay the price for fulfillment in your duty post.
Joshua was called to take over from Moses because he had been made fit for the purpose.
Having a mentors is very essential because it will help you to escape some unnecessary traps of the enemies against your life and ministry.
Let Us Pray.
1. Thank you oh Lord for surrounding my life with reputable personalities.
2. Oh Lord God, help me to be faithful to every given instruction to the praise of your glory.
3. Thank you for answered prayers oh Lord.
