8 Reasons Moses was an Incredible Leader and Person

This year I’m reading through the whole Bible again. I’m already into the book of Numbers and today in my reading I was reminded of how amazing Moses was as a leader. In some respects the books of Exodus through Deuteronomy are the story of Moses’s life. One cannot help but get to know Moses as you read through these books.  Each time I read them I’m more and more impressed with Him as a leader.

Moses - my hero

There’s much I can say about Moses. Let me highlight 8 reasons why he’s my hero, both as a leader and as a person.

8 Reasons Why Moses As A Leader Is My Hero

  1. He had his priorities right Hebrews 11:24. He valued walking with God more than a life of comfort and privilege.
  2. He wasn’t perfect Exodus 2:15, 32:19. Don’t misunderstand me. I’m not revelling that Moses blew it. I’m comforted that God chose and used a flawed man to do great things.
  3. He listened and learned from others Exodus 18:24. He needed advice and received it when it was offered by his father-in-law Jethro.
  4. He wasn’t selfish about power Exodus 11:16-30. He understood the burden of leadership and willingly shared that power.
  5. He knew why he was the leader Numbers 14:11-20. He was reluctant to take on the role Exodus 4:10-18, but once he did he never lost sight of the goal of leading the people.
  6. He trusted God to fight for him Numbers 16:3-5. He had remarkable faith that God always had his back.
  7. He didn’t give up in the face of adversity. He faced continual opposition throughout his life. Pharaoh opposed him Exodus 7-11, the people continually grumbled against him Exodus 14:10-12, Numbers 14:1-4 , Aaron and Miriam opposed him Numbers 12, Korah Numbers 16. He grew weary but never gave up.
  8. He was a man of remarkable character Numbers 12:6-8. God put Moses on a pedestal. He spoke with Moses like one speaks to a person face to face.

[Tweet “Moses was a flawed man who did amazing things for God.”]

It’s oft said the world has yet to see what God can do through a man or woman wholly committed to Him.  I think we saw it in Moses.  He’s my hero!

Some questions to consider:

  • Do you know what God wants you to do?
  • Are you letting your past or present failures keep you from accepting the call of God?
  • Are you wilting in face of opposition or adversity?
  • Are you ready to hear God speak to you face to face?

[Tweet “To be like Moses hear God, obey God, honor God and walk with God.”]

Are You Heading in the Right Direction?

My journey of faith started when I was nine years old when I realized that Jesus died and rose again to pay for my sins. At the age of thirteen I felt the call of God on my life for ministry.

I have been fortunate to work in the marketplace for over ten years and in full-time Christian ministry for over thirty years.

My passion is to teach God's Word in such a way that it is easy to understand and so that God uses it to bring about life change in those who hear it.

It is my greatest joy to see God work through me to produce fruit for His glory!
