Hitting the trail with a group of people is a fantastic way to strengthen friendships or get to know new people. While you’re putting in the miles, the person at the FRONT has a vital role in keeping the group together, focused, and safe. That person is known as the Trail Leader. A good Trail Leader will: 1. Keep an eye out for trail markers to navigate the journey. 2. Manage the group’s pace 3. Pause at crossings and junctions to regroup. 4. Recognize and maneuver through challenges. That brings us to the Old Testament figure Moses. For his story can be summed up as the story of a Trail Leader. His life is an epic tale of one who faces personal challenges while leading an entire nation along a journey of twists and turns, freedom and challenges, failures and victories. Our series will follow this Trail Leader from the beginning of his path to the end. And I hope this series will not only help us come to know Moses, but see how the trail he follows speaks into our lives today.
Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:
- God loves to take what seems “ordinary” and use it for something extraordinary.
- What you see as ”ordinary,” God sees as “opportunity.”
- God doesn’t call you because you are holy. He calls you so that you can be holy.
- God often leads us to engage in something we feel we are incapable of.
- When God wants to use you, He takes your humanity into the equation.
- God looks for a willing heart more than he looks for the “best equipped.”
Love you all. Have a great week.
