We have been talking about agreement in last several posts. Last time we talked about the importance of coming into agreement corporately, before moving forward. Today we are looking at moving forward corporately!
Once you have agreement don’t be surprised if God calls you to move forward. In Numbers Moses sent out one representative from each tribe to explore the land of Canaan; giving them these instructions:
“When Moses sent them to explore Canaan, he said, ‘Go up through the Negev and on into the hill country. See what the land is like and whether the people who live there are strong or weak, few or many. What kind of land do they live in? Is it good or bad? What kind of towns do they live in? Are they unwalled or fortified? How is the soil? Is it fertile or poor? Are there trees in it or not? Do your best to bring back some of the fruit of the land.’ (It was the season for the first ripe grapes.)”
Num 13:17 – 20
It is key in this process of exploration to do as Moses did, allowing time for the exploration to be complete. Moses gave 40 day, timing enough to travel to bring back as much information as they could about the people and the land.
This week as we sent out 5 representatives from CJM to explore the local office space, I ponder what will they report, will they see giants or a land flowing with milk and honey?
And what do those who are called to stay behind do? They must pray and be content as this process moves forward, welcoming all input that comes in, no matter if it is good or bad!
I wait with anticipation and awe for the explorers reports because upon returning to the office from one office exploration I was greeted by the news of someone committing to give to CJM on a monthly basis, investing in God’s plans for CJM!
