The sons of Issachar and Joshua, seeing and stepping in.

September 17, 2013

Greater revelation requires greater responsibility. Not only did the sons of Issachar have “understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do” (1 Chronicles 12: 32 KJV) but we learn from 1 Chronicles 7 1-5 that they were “valiant men of might.”

Increased revelation, wisdom, understanding and discernment will often require an act of obedience which requires courage. We cannot always just sit on what we receive. Jesus says in Luke 12:48 “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required.”

Consider Joshua who received the spirit of wisdom (Deuteronomy 34:9) imparted through Moses. Like his predecessor he was exhorted by God to be “strong and courageous.” Joshua 1:9

Stepping into the new first requires that we see the open door that God has given us very clearly in this season, but also requires courage to walk through it into all the fulness that He has for us, not being intimidated by any opposition, but trusting Him completely.
