“At that time the Lord separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the Lord, to stand before the Lord to minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day.”
How can you be a blessing to other people and minister to them in power?
This verse has some useful lessons I want us to examine.
1. The choice of the Lord
Ultimately, it’s God’s choice that counts not what we wish to be or want to be. God separated a particular tribe Levi to bless in his name. Find what God has chosen you to do and pursue it.
2. Cultivate the presence of God.
Levi bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord which bore his presence. You can carry the presence of God by cultivating holiness, reading your bible, prayer etc.
3. Minister to the Lord.
Spend time in worship and prayer and minister to God.
4. Be a blessing to others by ministering to them.
Finally, step out in faith and minister to people by being a blessing to them. Minister the word and the Spirit through prayer.
