Today you should read: Numbers 21:20-35
God shows Himself to be powerful in the nation of Israel. In our verses today we see that the Lord brought Israel victory against the Amorites and against Bashan. And it truly was God. God reminded Moses that it was HIS anointing and HIS strength that is bringing them victory in verse 34…
“But the Lord said to Moses, Do not fear him, for I have given him into your hand, and all his people, and his land.”
As leaders, it is easy to get prideful. It is easy to think that we are the ones who accomplished something great. But whenever we live in pride there is always a trade that happens… and it is not worth it. We exchange and trade the anointing of God for pride and credit.
The anointing of God is always better than the anointing of self… even if no one gives you acknowledgement.
We have to be careful to trade the anointing of God for pride. It is about Him. He is the one who draws people, moves in their hearts, and does great things. We are merely His instruments. And on top of that, humble leaders are always the most attractive leaders.
Paul knew this… 1 Corinthians 3:5-6…
“What then is Apollos? What is Paul? SERVANTS through whom you have believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but GOD GAVE THE GROWTH.
Who are you trusting in for great things today?
How can you be used as a servant of God at work, school, & home today?
