And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle. Exodus 33:11
Joshua waited on God, His Word and His presence, while others were playing and doing whatever they wanted with their lives. Those who wait on God don’t waste in life. Sometimes people might look at you and say, ‘ Are you not wasting your life and time? You have given all you have to the church. ‘That is the voice of the devil trying to discourage you and you must refuse to listen to it. One of the key thoughts on dedication is unusual dedication to God and it is the secret of unusual manifestations in life. This happens when people look at your life and they see that things are happening above normal frequency.
An example of such a person in the Bible is Joshua who commanded the sun and the moon to stand and they did. Why would God hearken to the voice of a man and make time to stand still for 24 hours? The only reason why God would do that is because the man was unusually dedicated to Him: Joshua departed not from the tabernacle (Exodus 33:11). Unusual manifestations, answers to unusual dedication. Some people have been coming to church for the past ten years or more, and have been doing nothing in the house of God; they are not in the prayer group, choir, sanctuary or in any department in the church, but sit comfortably to take notes and then go back home.
Go higher in your prayer life, Word life, worship to God, and service in the house of God. If we must see the overflow that God wants us to see, we must shift gear in our dedication to God. When you serve God let it cost you something, you should feel it in your body, spirit and soul that you have done something in regards to service to God. Never serve God in your comfort, or when you feel its convenient for you. Determine that you give it all it takes in your service to God. You have dwelt on the mountain of normal Christianity for too long. Its time to change level and God will bless you as you do so in Jesus’ Name. Always remember this, your aim in life determines your end in life.
