Overflowing vessel


Deuteronomy 34:9”Now Joshua the son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; and the sons of Israel listened to him and did as the LORD had commanded Moses.”


Boy, this scripture kind of made me go bonkers!  You know what, you don’t have to roll your eyes, flex your muscles or holler out loud but without doing any of these things you can still command obedience and respect  – that’s the power of the Holy Spirit! Glory to Jesus!  Let’s look at the scripture again, Joshua was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him.  This is awesome!  Moses had ‘so much’ in him that he was able to take some from the overflow and transfer it to Joshua, ah, we need such impartations in the body of Christ, is anybody listening to me?  I am not talking about empty noise, hulla-bulla and vanity but I am talking about the power of the Holy Spirit.  I have watched some preachers raise the volume of the mike or give some extra effect (like echo) so that their voice reverberates and sounds powerful, that’s comedy, hey, that cannot shoo away the demons, I am talking about real power of God. 


The world today needs this power to make a lasting impact on people, not pick up mutton on the way from church but power that keeps your mind stick like glue to God.  I remember hearing a sermon from a man of God that just shook me so badly that I shamelessly ran outside the church looking for him even after he left, my husband had to calm me down and take me home; however, I was till shivering and sobbing under the power of God.  The world needs such powerful preaching today which can only come through an overflowing vessel.  Moses had MUCH to give away because he had made the efforts, commitment and sacrifice to sit and have a ‘face to face’ talk with God. Wow!  Is anything happening to you?  As for me I am just going crazy for God, I write this after: ) spending the entire Friday night in prayer, b) fasting prayer on Saturday and after c) preaching at the Sunday service at church.  I type this on Sunday afternoon and I am charged. I am looking, searching hungrily …. for people like Moses…….


Look, whatever we do or wherever we go, we got to leave a lasting impression in the minds of people, is anybody listening to me?  We read about the death of Moses in verse 5, the story is not over though, you cannot close the chapter of Moses…. but the fire is still burning as we read about his assistant Joshua who has caught the fire from Moses.  Such should be our life. Leaving golden foot prints behind…
