Tim is a Master Sherpa Executive Coach, author of 11 published books and hundreds of leadership articles. He also served for many years in pastoral ministry and is an insightful bible teacher. Take a few minutes to meditate on Exodus 5:22-6:2 and then listen in to hear where God led Tim. Some highlights from our conversation: Tim gives us the back story to this verse and helps us understand why Moses might have been caught off guard by the Israelites anger. The Scripture says God hardened Pharaoh’s heart. Tim gives us his perspective on what this means and answers the question, “Was Pharaoh a good guy before God hardened his heart – or was there something else at play?” It’s very possible to do the right thing and have things go terribly wrong. This can lead to feeling angry with God. What should we do with this anger – and what can we learn from how Moses deals with his anger. We talk about why circumstances and feelings aren’t the best metric for knowing and following God’s will. And we also discuss how we can know God’s voice better.   You can find Tim at https://www.stevensoncoaching.com/ You can find Tim’s leadership articles here And order his leadership book Better here The exact verses read in this podcast are Exodus 5:22-6:2 22 Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Why, Lord, why have you brought trouble on this people? Is this why you sent me? 23 Ever since I went to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble on this people, and you have not rescued your people at all.” 6 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh: Because of my mighty hand he will let them go; because of my mighty hand he will drive them out of his country.” 2 God also said to Moses, “I am the Lord.
