Leadership thought of the day

Elisha served Elijah till the end even though he was hard-pressed to give up early.

He was determined to see his master through till the end.

He would complete his assignment and not even the prophet’s suggestion of ending early dissuaded him.

Because he pressed through to the end; Elisha received a double portion of his master’s anointing.

The lesson here is to continue to the very end. Only let the Lord separate you and promote you and receive the double portion.


Do you hear what I hear?

Now when Joshua heard the sound of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, "There is a sound of war in the camp."
But he (Moses) said,
"It is not the sound of the cry of triumph, Nor is it the sound of the cry of defeat; But the sound of singing I hear." Exodus 32:17-18 NASB
The purpose of a mentor, a spiritual parent is to help you develop your ear; sharpen your discernment. Joshua served faithfully under Moses until Moses died and it was time to take the Children of Israel over into the promise land.

During Joshua’s early training, he and Moses along with 70 others were on a mountain receiving the commandments from God.

A noise from the Hebrew camp arose and Joshua heard the sound of war.

Moses had to tell him, no what you hear is the sound of singing.

This was a lesson in proper discernment and on hearing correctly.

And what a valuable lesson.

Joshua, a man of war, discerned the noise through his combat filter. Moses helped him realize that was not the case and Joshua grew as a leader that day.

Had Moses not instructed Joshua, he would have went storming down the mountain ready for war and looked very foolish!

Man and woman of God, allow Holy Spirit to develop your spiritual hearing and discernment through your leader. If you submit to this training, God can then magnify you before those you serve and save you from foolish mistakes.

Many blessings,
Pastor Lisa
