Finding Priests

Exodus 28:1-5
1 "Have Aaron your brother brought to you from among the Israelites, along with his sons Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, so they may serve me as priests. 2 Make sacred garments for your brother Aaron, to give him dignity and honor. 3 Tell all the skilled men to whom I have given wisdom in such matters that they are to make garments for Aaron, for his consecration, so he may serve me as priest. 4 These are the garments they are to make: a breastpiece, an ephod, a robe, a woven tunic, a turban and a sash. They are to make these sacred garments for your brother Aaron and his sons, so they may serve me as priests. 5 Have them use gold, and blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and fine linen.

We’re getting ready to focus on our org charts as a part of our infrastructure focus. The concept excites me greatly and then exhausts me.

I can very clearly outline what my teams within Cypress Arts should look like and what roles need to be filled for us to function as a well-oiled machine….HOWEVER… Actually finding the right people to fit into those well defined spots… now that’s a different story!

How wonderful it would be if, like in Exodus 28, God simply told me as He did Moses, who would fill these roles. Maybe He will… I don’t know.

I do believe that He knows who He has created for these roles in this time. I am committing to praying for each of these unfilled roles and for the people He already has set for them.

I take the leadership of teams very seriously and want to be certain to have the right person in that role. But I don’t want to be so cautious that I am paralyzed to make a decision and slow down the growth of the team because of that. But on the other hand, I don’t want to be too quick in my decision and misplace a person. That could cause harm to the person and to the team.

So, I’m committing to praying and listening… Moses waited on the mountain six days before God called out to him.
