Exodus 5:22-23

"Moses returned to the LORD and said, "O LORD, why have you brought trouble upon this people?  Is this why you sent me?  Ever since I went to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble upon this people, and you have not rescued them at all."

Each one of us has been called into God's ministry to serve, some for great tasks and some for lesser ones, but each according to their ability.  But when God gives us a clear vision, do we let discouragement shake us?  When we go to accomplish God's will and are met with opposition, will it cast doubt upon our mission and dreams?  Even Moses had to ask if he was doing the right thing by going back to Egypt.  Surely he must've thought to himself "What am I doing here?  They were better off than if I had never come at all!"

But God had a plan of redemption even in the midst of the problem growing worse and not better.  Moses had to trust God every step of the way even when he had his doubts about if he was actually doing any good in ministry.  He stuck through it because he was sure in his call by God to be where he was even when he couldn't see why or how.  Moses had no clue what he was doing, but he went and did because of the LORD.  This has made all the difference in his ministry.
