Is it a small thing to you that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to Himself, to do the work of the tabernacle of the Lord, and to stand before the congregation to serve them.
When you read Numbers 16, you see the sons of Korah rebelling against Moses and Aaron. They are unhappy with their assigned appointments and positions graced to them by the Almighty God. “They gathered together against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “You take too much upon yourselves, for all the congregation is holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them. Why then do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the Lord?” (Numbers 16:3). The honor of carrying the holy things of God was not enough for them. They wanted more and came against God’s chosen.
What can we learn from their actions? Our mindsets matter. Our view of our purpose is wrapped in our mindset about our mission. We must see the importance of our work and not consider it a small thing. When we don’t see the importance of our work, we will be quick to try to do someone else’s. Our effort determines our results. We must know our worth so we can do our work effectively and appreciate the opportunity to serve the King.
We must remember that victories are not won in the spotlight. They are won in the trenches, in moments of prayer and reflection. These victories are not won by walking in our truth; they are won by walking in His. We must have a mindset to follow the will of the One who calls us to be like Him and walk worthy.
