Exodus 24:13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.
Moses is the man of God for his day. Joshua is there as his minister, his servant. Joshua will be the next man of God for his generation. It is interesting to me to see that God prepares him by having him work for Moses. He is everywhere with Moses. He is serving him, caring for him.
All the while he is with Moses he is also learning. He sees how it works. He is learning how to lead by watching the leader. He is learning how God works in the life of His man by watching what happens in the life of Moses. One day soon Joshua will be the man. But for now, he is simply working, watching, learning, and preparing for the life God has for him.
Are you learning all you can where you are? Are you using this time in your life to prepare you for whatever it is that God has for you in the future? Every day is important as God prepares you to serve Him. Listen, learn, and apply all that God is allowing you to see!
