Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 37

Scripture Passage: Exodus 5:1-23
The Leader May Doubt the Vision During Adversity
Moses had a great vision; to bring Israel out of Egypt and into a good land flowing with milk and honey. Everyone was excited, leader and followers alike. However, after his first encounter with Pharaoh, the initial excitement was lost as things went from bad to worse for the children of Israel and Moses questioned God saying, “Why did you send me? Since I came to speak to Pharaoh, he has done evil to this people and you have not delivered them.” (Paraphrased)
The lesson here is this; adversity usually shows up at the point of pursuing the vision and when it does, the leader may doubt the vision and begin to question its authenticity. It is usually at this point that many leaders abandon their vision, as they are no longer sure.
Prayer: Father, help me to stay on course with the vision even in the midst of adversity.
