God's Dream Team

Team work makes the dream work. It's a pretty simple yet profound thought.

Every time God has ever given a mission to a leader He also prepares and gifts some of the lives of those around him.

God may place the responsibility on the leader but often the capability on the leaders team.

We see this in Exodus 31:1-11. Moses is commissioned to build the tabernacle that God will dwell in among the Israelites. God goes into great details as to how this tabernacle and all of its intricate and artistic surroundings are supposed to be crafted.

Moses must have been thinking to himself, "How in the world am I ever going to get this done???"
Then God fills Moses in on some of his future team members. Team members that God has:

  • "chosen"
  • "filled with His Spirit"
  • "given skills, abilities, and knowledge" in all the areas Moses was needing

"I have given skill to all the craftsmen to make everything I have commanded you." (v.6)
"They are to make them just as I commanded you." (v.11)

The responsibility will always rest on the leader but most often the capability will come from the people who surround that leader.

Find out what kinds of gifts God has placed in your life-both natural and spiritual.
Begin to serve a God-given mission and dream with those giftings and abilities.
It will be one of the most satisfying things you could ever do with your life.

I am so thankful for the dream team that God has surrounded my staff and I with....because it really is team work makes the dream work.
