Leadership Link

(New articles will be posted on Mondays and Fridays.)

The Book of Joshua gives an astonishing account of dynamic and effective leadership.  From the loyalty of the servant Joshua to the royalty of great success.  This book is filled with powerful insights on leadership.  After a period of preparation under Moses, Joshua emerges to lead the Jewish people into their promised land.

In this part of our website, we will be examining the elements of this effective leadership that led a nation to a higher dimension.  We will be giving many relevant revelations on leadership that are taken from the life of Joshua.  You will find it illuminating, inspiring, and motivating.

Joshua 3:13 gives some powerful revelation and shows the connection between the priest, the ark, the people, and God’s victory.  The threat of death lay before God’s people as this river flowed.  The nation could be crippled if they tried to cross this river with human help.  The miracle came when the priest stepped into the cold, overflowing, crippling flood with the Ark on his shoulder.  From the moment the priest stepped into the Jordan flood the waters were cut off.  The priest, as he was vitally connected to the Ark (which is a symbol of God’s presence), must step into the water.  He bore the responsibility of the presence of the Lord while the others walked on dry land.  Somebody has to have this responsibility and declare “I will stand, for the presence of God is with me.”  This is what God is doing among His people as men and women are being raised up to take the responsibility of the presence of God and bring deliverance to those around us.  Someone must rise at this hour and declare, “I will stand. If many fall around me, I am determined to stand.”

In Joshua 3:8, the people are commanded to stand still at the brink of the Jordan.  This is God’s strategy for the saint whose onward journey is challenged by a deep, murky, cold, over-flowing river.  To stand still requires an unwavering commitment to God’s word and a total trust in His power.  If this Jordan is to be overcome, it will be because of the power of God and the trust of God’s people.  There are so many times when we face these enormous challenges and fear and anxiety ensue because we begin consulting with flesh to reason out our deliverance.  Stand still is the word of God to the pilgrims.  Verse 10 gives the result of standing still as enemies are driven out by the power of God.  Well-trained wilderness warriors are driven out by the hand of God’s omnipotence as God’s people take the position of trust.  The enemy would love to tempt the saint to be over active in this battle for if the saint takes the challenge into his or her hand, the victory is forfeited.  To the one who is ready to move on to the place of God’s appointed destiny, the word is “STAND STILL” and see the salvation of the Lord.
