Read Numbers 11:24-30


Read Numbers 11:24-30

24 So Moses went out and told the people what the LORD had said. He assembled 70 of the leaders and placed them round the Tent. 25Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him. He took some of the spirit he had given to Moses and gave it to the 70 leaders. When the spirit came on them, they began to shout like prophets, but not for long.
26 Two of the 70 leaders, Eldad and Medad, had stayed in the camp and had not gone out to the Tent. There in the camp the spirit came on them, and they too began to shout like prophets. 27A young man ran out to tell Moses what Eldad and Medad were doing.
28 Then Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses’ helper since he was a young man, spoke up and said to Moses, “Stop them, sir!”
29 Moses answered, “Are you concerned about my interests? I wish that the LORD would give his spirit to all his people and make all of them shout like prophets!” 30Then Moses and the 70 leaders of Israel went back to camp.


The people of Israel are hungry, God feeds them.  They need leadership; God provides for them.  The Holy Spirit is the source of authority and guidance for the people that Moses appoints to lead the people of Israel.  As Christians we receive the Holy Spirit - the power, strength and guide that we need to do the work of leading and prophesying that each of us must do.


Lord - thank you for the gift of your Holy Spirit.  Help me to be led by your Holy Spirit so that I might lead others - in your grace and power.  Amen.
