Leadership Promises - Trade Your Fears for Faith in God

"When the Lord saw that he turned aside to look,God called to him from the midst of the bush." Exodus 3:4

Brokenness involves removing inappropriate pride and self-reliance and building healthy God-reliance. God tamed Moses' self-reliance and pride in the desert, but to create trust He had to break the man's fears. Moses dealt with different kinds of fear in his encounter with God:
Leadership Promises.
1. Fears concerning himself. God responded by assuring Moses of his purpose.
2. Fears concerning God. God responded by overwhelming Moses with His presence.
3. Fears concerning others. God responded by demonstrating His power and commitment.
4. Fears concerning his ability. God responded by providing him with a partner, his brother, Aaron.

With his willfulness broken, his fears overcome, and his purpose affirmed, Moses finally placed himself in the hands of God.

Life is filled with trade-offs. Moses sacrificed his status and material possessions to prepare for his life purpose. And then to fulfill it, he had to sacrifice again, relinquishing the security and safety of obscurity in the desert. If you desire to lead, then you must be ready to make sacrifices.
