How are leaders supposed to respond to plotters, evil doers, and conspirators coming against them? Fall face down on the ground. Proclaim what the Lord will do for you, and have faith in what you know about God.
Moses, a surrendered man of God, had three church leaders to plot against him. It only took three divisive men in the church to gather 250 other esteemed church members to incite a rebellion. It is important to note that God had already blessed these men with leadership positions and because of their inability to control the works of the flesh (jealousy, envy, division, and dissension) they rebelled against the surrendered man of God.
When Moses discovered the plot, he immediately fell face down on the ground. This is so deep. Moses shows his reliance on God to direct him through this situation. He is prostrate before God. He shows humility and self-control. He even shows his haters respect by falling on his face.
How do we as surrendered men and women of God respond to conflict? Do we with confidence and faith in God say, “God will take care of you in the morning? I may be down on my face now, but in the morning God will get the vengeance.” Are you confident that God won’t even allow these evil doers to enter into His presence? Leaders, when people come against you, don’t panic; don’t fear; and don’t retaliate. God will take care of them in the morning. Dr.J.

Numbers 16:1-5 NLT “One day Korah son of Izhar, a descendant of Kohath son of Levi, conspired with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On son of Peleth, from the tribe of Reuben. They incited a rebellion against Moses, along with 250 other leaders of the community, all prominent members of the assembly. They united against Moses and Aaron and said, ‘You have gone too far! The whole community of Israel has been set apart by the LORD, and he is with all of us. What right do you have to act as though you are greater than the rest of the LORD’s people?’ When Moses heard what they were saying, he fell face down on the ground. Then he said to Korah and his followers, ‘Tomorrow morning the LORD will show us who belongs to him and who is holy. The LORD will allow only those whom he selects to enter his own presence.'”
