Today in Numbers chapter 11 we read about God's Spirit resting upon 70 leaders! I loved verse 29 where Moses responded to Joshua's protesting of Eldad and Medad prophesying in the camp: ""Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the LORD's people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his Spirit upon them all!"" This is great humility on Moses part! He was not threatened by others using gifts of the Spirit in public. "I wish that all the Lord's people were prophets." These words of Moses remind me of a more modern day quote I read somewhere that went something like this: "We are all called to be saints." I like that... Do you believe that you are called to be a saint? How will you be made to be a saint? Or, perhaps I should ask, through Whom will you be sanctified?
Below is an image for Numbers chapter 13, where we read about twelve scouts exploring the Promised Land, and Moses sending them out in verse 17 & 18: "Moses gave the men these instructions as he sent them out to explore the land: "Go northward through the Negev into the hill country. See what the land is like and find out whether the people living there are strong or weak, few or many."
Worship Video: Today’s readings reminded me of the song "One True God" by Mark Harris. Here's a great live version of this song:
