Moses Needed Help; His Gift of Administrations Found the Solution

I had to give a ride to someone to the location of her vehicle and the topic of roads came up.  I had mentioned this topic before to another individual … that a particular area in town lacked good planning regarding roads.

The gift of administrations or governments is given by God and those who have it are capable of finding the best talent for the job and then turning them loose to do the job.  In the case of the roads, it was evident that something was lacking.

Interestingly, this discussion had come up before with someone else, and there had been no comment or response back.  In this case,  when the same discussion came up, I was told that there had been a visionary had tried to convince people to think for the future but he had been rejected.

So there had been a solution, but it was rejected.

Moses was a great leader.  He was used to help free the children of Israel from Pharoah.  He went into the mount of God and received the Ten Commandments.   But as great a leader as Moses was, even he recognized when he needed to delegate a task and needed the talents of someone else.

Numbers 10:29 And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses’ father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the Lord said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the Lord hath spoken good concerning Israel.

30 And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred.

31 And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou mayest be to us instead of eyes.

32 And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that what goodness the Lord shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee.


If the last few years have shown us anything, it has revealed how quickly something can be destroyed if the wrong people are in charge.  Ideally, people who have been given the gift of administration make it into leadership positions and are able to function according to their God-given wisdom and talents. A heap of good that it took many generations to create can be destroyed quickly by the wrong people in charge.  We need to pray that God will bring the right people to fill the places that need to be filled in the days ahead.
