It is even more disheartening when you are 100% sure, but the main resistance comes from those you believe should understand and run with the vision. I am not suggesting that everyone is supposed to catch the vision, but Acts 7 verses 25 – 29 prompts leaders to ask the following questions:
- Have we communicated the vision accurately?
- Do the people really understand the vision, and how they are supposed to complement it?
Moses thought that his own people would realise that God was using him to rescue them, but they did not. The next day Moses came upon two Israelites who were fighting. He tried to reconcile them by saying, ‘Men, you are brothers; why do you want to hurt each other?’ “But the man who was mistreating the other pushed Moses aside and said, ‘Who made you ruler and judge over us? Do you want to kill me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday?’ When Moses heard this, he fled to Midian, where he settled as a foreigner and had two sons.”
Later in Acts 7 verses 33 – 34, the burning bush experience with God facilitates a greater understanding of the vision that God had for the children of Israel and Moses’ role in leading them out of Egypt.
“Then the Lord said to him, ‘Take off your sandals; the place where you are standing is holy ground. I have indeed seen the oppression of my people in Egypt. I have heard their groaning and have come down to set them free. Now come, I will send you back to Egypt.
For people to run with a vision, they need to have greater knowledge, understanding and wisdom of it, and of what their roles are.
Shalom – Love Never Fails
