Thoughts Of Devotion:
Everytime we have a commission on behalf of God, without a doubt the Holy Spirit will enable us for the task. No matter how great or impossible it might seem, he surely will facilitate us to carry it out! In this portion of Scripture Joshua is given a special capacity from the Holy Spirit to govern the people. In Deuteronomy 31:23 it tells us, “Then He inaugurated Joshua the son of Nun, and said, “Be strong and of good courage; for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land of which I swore to them, and I will be with you.” What a great task, to lead the people to possess the promise land. The challenge and task was very particular and extraordinary for Joshua to do it without the Holy Spirit.
Joshua receives the capacity to guide and govern the people of Israel. For that to be carried out with effectiveness it would have to be the Holy spirit that gives the wisdom and knowledge to carry out the enormous task. It is very evident that the Holy Spirit always dwells on one person, the wisdom and spiritual intelligence was evident! as it teaches us in Isaiah 11:2 it tells us,” The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.”Only in this way there would be success in the mission we have received on behalf of the Lord.
Today we need the work of the Holy Spirit to accomplish each task, each labor, each thing, as small as it is what we do for the Lord. The success and the lasting fruit will be through the work of the Holy Spirit over our lives. Only knowing the strategy, the steps, and the decisions that we must take, remember He has the master plan! The blueprint is what we need to know to not fail in what we are building for the Lord! Amen!
