The Man Who Stayed Behind
God is meeting with his people in the tent of meeting. Moses is face to face with God. Something powerful is going on with God and his people. the people have sinned with the golden calf idolatry and yet God is reaching out by offering his presence. One man stayed behind. After Moses left and all the others went home, one man stayed behind; his name was Joshua. Joshua sensed a moment. He seized an unprecedented opportunity when it was presented. He became the leader that withstood the unbelieving Israeli multitudes as well as becoming the leader to establish the people of God in Canaan 40 years later. He stayed behind to seek God! This message encourages seeking!
