Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 135

Scripture Passage: Judges 6:1-14; 7:15-21
Vision Brings the Leader Out of Hiding.
Gideon was a great leader and he would deliver Israel from bondage to the Midianites. However, until he received a vision, the Bible says, “Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress to hide it from the Midianites.” Without a vision, albeit Gideon had the potential to be a leader and deliverer, he remained in hiding. When vision came, he went down to the camp of the Midianites with three hundred men and the Bible says, “…and all the host ran, and cried, and fled.” Vision made him a terror to what had initially terrorised him.
The lesson here is this; vision brings the leader out of hiding. And without a vision and the pursuit of the same, a leader is really no different from the people. It is vision and the active pursuit of vision that separates leaders from followers. Vision pursuit makes leaders.
Prayer: Father, give me a vision and the grace to pursue same.
