MY PLACE OF LEADERSHIP

 

Read It


Exodus 3:10-11


“So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.” But Moses said to God, "Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?"

 

Discover It


God protected Moses as an infant. He lived a privileged life as a child, growing up in Pharaoh’s household. As a young man he reconnected with the suffering of the Hebrews, most of whom were enslaved in Egypt. When he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew slave, he killed the Egyptian, burying him in the sand. Fleeing for his life, he met the family of Jethro the Midianite, marrying his daughter Zipporah. Life was good in the desert. But meanwhile, the Hebrews back in Egypt still groaned in slavery and cried out to the Lord to help them. So, the Lord decided to speak to Moses in a burning bush, sending him back to Egypt to bring the Israelites out of bondage and into freedom. The question was, “Would Moses be willing to go?”

 


Ask It


1. Can you remember a time when God asked you to do something too hard for you? Would you be ready if the Lord sent you on a difficult, dangerous, or impossible mission?


2. John Maxwell once defined the concept of leadership with one word, “Influence.” Who do you have influence over today? How can you use your influence to lead people out of bondage and into the freedom of Jesus Christ?


3. Moses said, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” Is false humility or real insecurity causing you to reject the mission God has for you? What can you do about that?

 

Live It


1. NOTICE. Moses would not have heard from God had he not noticed the burning bush and turned aside for a few moments to go investigate. In the same way you should be sensitive to the signs of God’s work around you each day. And then, take some time each day to turn aside each day to focus on the Lord.


2. LISTEN. Moses engaged in a conversation with the Lord. When was the last time you had a real prayer time, talking to God and listening to Him? And be willing to go where He leads. Why would the Lord speak to someone who wasn’t willing to do His will?


3. STEP OUT. After some hesitancy, Moses finally ended up stepping out in faith and doing God’s will. And in your life, after all is said and done, you must step out by faith as well. Will you step out in faith and follow the Lord as he leads?

 

Pray It


Lord Jesus, please give me an attentive mind to notice you, alert ears to hear you, and a willing heart to desire to follow You. Wherever it may take me, let me follow You as a lamb follows the shepherd. In Your holy name, I pray. Amen.
