Moses … went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens (Exodus 2:11)
We may have the vision of God and a very clear understanding of what God wants, and yet when we start to do it, there comes to us something equivalent to Moses’ forty years in the wilderness. It’s as if God has ignored the entire thing, and when we are thoroughly discouraged, God comes back and revives His call to us. If you are going through a time of discouragement, there is a time of great personal growth ahead.
