Please Be Quiet

But Caleb tried to quiet the people as they stood before Moses. “Let’s go at once to take the land,” he said. “We can certainly conquer it!”

— Numbers 13:30 NLT


It is the hardest thing to get people to finally be quiet enough to hear what the instructions we being given are.

Most people start complaining before they get the full understanding of what is bieng said to them.  They fly off at the handle, because they didn’t like the way the meeting began.  Others are angry because they have to be in a corporate meeting place surrounded by people they hardly get along with.

Caleb is having to yell above the crowd to allow their leader Moses to speak to the people according what the Lord God commanded him.

I do not like that when someone who is addressing a congregation that is being rude and talking over the speakers words.  I find myself shushing folks so that I can get what is being said for me even if you don’t.

When you have people who are afraid to move forward as a group, that says a lot about that generations stamina and longevity.  When a generation has no true leader they repsect, they die off sooner then later.  This is a Spiritual thing I am sharing with you.  Our Nany Boomers are forced to press a long time because there X generation and millennial generations are too weak to lead such great people.  We need our grand parents today to step up and take charge a little while lomger because we might not get any leaders I  place before it is to late.

Caleb and Joshua are the next successors to take the role of leaders in Israel.  They have a task to reach a particular place and they must take from the enemy what was promised their fore-father Abraham when he left the land of Ur of the Chaldean.

Finally, people will not listen if you do not have your thoughts together.  So, Moses speaking through Aaron because of his speech impediment had to make sure what He said would get across to those who have stubborn spirits and resistant views.

They get quiet enough to hear what the middle aged young man is sharing about the land they are going over to possess.  It flows with milk and honey, it’s resources are in access and abundant.  The clusters are huge.  We can take the cities and towms.  Let’s stand together and pursue this opportunity now.

The people complained and complained, because they did not have faith like that of those who were half their age.   Ma y people will complain because they are older and set with comfort to stay where they have grown accustomed.  They don’t want any more than what they already have.

We cannot leave the family stagnated and double minded.
