Day 5: “Spirit of wisdom”

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Deuteronomy 34:9

9 Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to him and did what the Lord had commanded Moses.

Reflection:

Joshua is mentioned in the last chapter of Deuteronomy, which connects it to the book of Joshua, giving a continuity of God’s care over the community of Israel. Again there is mention of Moses’ imparting the anointing for leadership over Joshua. And one important aspect is how he is filled with the spirit of wisdom. We now understand that in Christ, it is the Holy Spirit who lives in us and gives His wisdom to those who are called.

Response:

Let’s ask for the Spirit given wisdom to live out our calling.  Let’s cry out together and humbly ask God to fill us with His Spirit.
