If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed. ~Proverbs 29:18 (MSG)
Did you ever notice, when you are walking in unknown territories (or when you are simply facing something you have never faced before), you have a tendency to stumble a little bit as you look for someone who can give you direction? Someone who may have experienced what you are dealing with before. I have found that some people when faced with uncertainty just say, “tell me what to do.”
As a nonprofit or ministry leader, it is your job to stay close to God and show the people (those on your team) the vision. Unless you show them where the organization is going, they will stumble, they will not be able to see where they are supposed to go or what they are supposed to do.
Going deeper, this verse tells us why it is so important for you as a nonprofit or ministry leader to stay close to God, to get his direction. Without a vision, people turn to their own ways, the ways that are easy. In our minds, we say, “oh no, that is not true.” But, when we really think about it, it’s true, isn’t it? We are so quick to turn to our own ways and desires when we can’t see what God is doing.
