Power Change Success
Spiritual words, power, change, and success.What happens when the “movement” is over, and God wants to do a new thing? How would you react if your spiritual father finished his course and crossed over to the other side? It happened to Joshua when Moses died.
When Moses died that movement died. It was time for the next generation to arise, but before the next generation could arise, God needed to release fresh new words for a fresh new season. With those words came instruction and promised benefits for obedience.
Every time there is a seasonal change in your life and ministry, words are involved. That’s because the Holy Spirit never puts new wine in old bottles.
“No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.” (Matthew 9:16-17)
When God speaks to you, he carefully assembles words together. These words are tailored just for you. These words are filled with your assignment. Certain words will inspire you. Other words stir you. And still, other words speak to your future. God knows which words excite you, that change your season, and give you joy, peace, and courage. Let’s read what happened after Moses died.
“Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying, Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.” (Joshua 1:1-3)
“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it.
