Open Heaven 2 March 2024 TOPIC: Your Right-Hand Man 1

MEMORISE: “But Moses’ hands were heavy, and they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat thereon, and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.” – Exodus 17:12 (KJV)

READ: Exodus 4:10-16 (KJV)

10 And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.

11 And the Lord said unto him, Who made man’s mouth? Or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Have not I the Lord?

12 Therefore, go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.

13 And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send.

14 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.

15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.

16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 30-32

Open Heaven 2 March 2024 MESSAGE

For everyone who becomes excellent, there is always at least one person God provides to be their ‘right-hand man.’ For example, in Exodus 4:10-16, when Moses told God that he could not go to Egypt because he couldn’t speak well, God appointed Aaron to assist him. In Exodus 17:8-13, when the Amalekites came to attack Israel, Moses went to the mountaintop with Aaron and Hur and told Joshua to lead the army in the valley below. Moses lifted his hands, and Israel prevailed, but when he got tired, Aaron and Hur gave him a rock to sit on and held up his hands. In the meantime, Joshua was in the valley below fighting. All these people were right-hand men to Moses.

We find another example in Genesis 24. Abraham called his lead servant and asked him to get a wife for His son amongst his (Abraham’s) people. That lead servant was Abraham’s right-hand man in this case. I should, however, also note that the term is genderless, as a woman can also be a ‘right-hand man’ to another woman. The right-hand man is close enough to their leader to know what the latter needs at every moment and be proactive in providing it.

You should also identify your right-hand man if you haven’t. Your right-hand man can say what you cannot express yourself or might have a way of presenting the matter that will effectively pass on your intended message. They can be the lifter of your hands and help you when your hands go weary. Such a person is the one who can provide you with something to sit upon when you are tired, someone who can make you comfortable even in their discomfort. Like Joshua, they are the ones who can fight your battles even when you are not there.

Your real right-hand man is one who, despite your closeness, will never take you for granted because of familiarity. Your right-hand man will see your weaknesses and not use them against you or go around telling others about them; they will instead cover them as Aaron and Hur did for Moses. Your right-hand man is one to whom you can entrust things and be sure they will do it as you want it done. Note that God may also have you serve as a right-hand man to someone.

Open Heaven 2 March 2024 ACTION POINT

Pray that God should connect you to the right-hand man He has prepared for you, and also thank Him especially for adding another year to my years today.

Open Heaven 2 March 2024 HYMN 13 – In Christ Alone

1 In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here, in the love of Christ, I stand.

2 In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross, as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here, in the death of Christ, I live.

3 There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then, bursting forth on a glorious day,
Up from the grave, He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His, and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

4 No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to the final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here, in the power of Christ, I’ll stand.
