The SILENT Number 2

Exodus 17:9   So Moses said to Joshua, "Choose men for us and go out, fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will station myself on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand."

Thomas Cup Final 2022: India has defeated the 14-time champions Indonesia to win the Thomas Cup for the first time. First time!!!  India scripted a historic 3-0 win over Indonesia in the Thomas Cup final in Bangkok, on Sunday, May 15 2022. I would like to mention about the star shuttler  K. Srikanth who played a major role for the team’s victory.  The coach said, ‘for close to a decade be has been the silent No.2 in the support  staff of the Indian Badminton teams. ‘ Wow, look at the perseverance!! However, a DAY came when he could display his credentials in front of the whole world and make his nation proud.  Hurray!  As you wait:  Practice patiently, practice confidently, practice courageously, practice diligently, practice dexterously, looking forward for victory with daring expectancy.  Anybody listening?

There’s a fighter in you! Are you listening? Don’t succumb to negativity, discouragement, failures, pain, sickness, doctor’s report, job lay off, financial mess or for that matter anything, don’t allow it to sink you, instead arise stronger from the situation.  Are you listening?

In the above scripture, Moses said: “Joshua, choose men for us and go out, fight against Amalek!” Among the 6 lakh people Moses knew whom to call; moreover, this was the first time Joshua comes to the lime light to the fore, all the while he was hidden behind the bush for several years as Number 2 behind Moses.  Joshua was not eating and sleeping but he was practicing for the GREAT DAY, that’s why without hesitation he answered the call and the Bible says verse 10, “Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought against Amalek..” Hallelujah! Moses, Hur and Aaron join hands to uphold Joshua in prayer, while Joshua fought the enemies. Verse 13 says, “So Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.”  This is team work!

TEAM SPIRIT:  The enemy could not stand the oneness, love and discipline which shattered the enemies.  The coach also said this about the Indian team, “The players showed great team spirit and it was possible because of so many things like regular team meetings, dress code, going together for dinner and breakfast. “ 

We need unflagging energy, passion, persistence, patience, punctilious, assiduous and nerves of steel to succeed. Friend, no fun in just making statements, once aboard with God we need to learn the skills of growing in the Lord.

During hard times, we need to be patient, persevere,   keep the commandments of God and faith in Jesus.”(Revelations 14:12)
