Spiritual Surrender - the Catalyst for Abundance
Joshua 24:15b "...As for me and my family, we'll serve God."
Joshua's life was dedicated to serving and worshipping God. When he was Moses' aide during his younger days, he was observed to linger at the tent of meeting even after Moses had finished speaking to God.
There came a point in his ministry that Joshua had to address the issue of the Jews being of two minds when it came to serving God (in fact, it was a constant spiritual struggle for them all along their journey). This declaration was the very surrender that set Joshua and his family to experience abundance. We are told further in verse 31 of the same chapter that the whole of Israel served God "through the lifetime of Joshua and of the elders who outlived him, who had themselves experienced all that God had done for Israel."
There is something unique about the place of surrender that inspires others around us to follow suit. Not only is spiritual heritage established, passion is built and spiritual momentum is gathered. In short, our surrender becomes the catalyst for others to step into the same zone of abundance experienced by us!
