Topic: Moses, A World Leader [Teens’ Open Heavens Saturday 17, March 2018]
Memorise: Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth. Numbers 12:3
Read: Numbers 12:2-4
2 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.
3 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
4 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.
Bible In One Year: Deuteronomy 29-30, Mark 10:32-52
Apart for David, another Bible character that could not win all his internal battles was Moses. This was the man who won Heaven’s prize for meekness during his time. Numbers 12:3 helps us to know that God has a record of all prize winners, nation by nation and on a worldwide scale for various areas of the fruit of the Spirit. He has a record of the most loving, the most patient, most caring, greatest worshipper, most thankful, et cetera. If you really care about your stand in these areas ask God to tell you and He will.
Another lesson here is that it is possible to be a world leader in a particular area of grace and still mess up. Moses was a world leader in meekness yet he could not win the battle against anger. Further still, we learn that being a world leader in a given area does not absolve you of the punishment of failing. Moses missed the Promised Land because of anger. But thank God that he did not miss Heaven. Neglecting your weakness can eventually erode the glory of your strengths. Be careful!
Action Point: Prayerfully seek God’s face in an area you desire to be a world leader in. Ask for the grace to do it.

1. Stand up! stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the Cross!
Lift high His royal banner,
It must not suffer loss.
From vict’ry unto vict’ry
His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed.
2. Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
The solemn watchword hear;
If while ye sleep he suffers,
Away with shame and fear.
Where’re ye meet with evil,
Within you or without,
Charge for the God of battles,
And put the foe to rout.
3. Stand up! stand up for Jesus !
Stand in His strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you,
Ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the gospel armour,
Each piece put on with prayer;
When duty calls or danger,
Be never wanting there.
4. Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
The strife will not be long;
This day the noise of battle,
The next the victor’s song.
To him that overcometh
A crown of life shall be;
He with the King of glory
Shall reign eternally
