A young man ran and told Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” – Numbers 11:27 (NIV)

There have always been people who want to contain the work of God. This young man thought that Moses would clamp down on these men who were moving in spiritual power. Instead, Moses gives them a very surprising answer: “I wish that all the Lord’s people were prophets and that the Lord would put His spirit on them.” Instead of trying to quarantine the work of the Spirit, we would do well to encourage and release people as God is building a kingdom of priests unto Himself.
