The True Strength Of A Leader
Leaders are those who are able to stay the course in the face of great odds.
The true strength of a leader is revealed in the way he responds in times of adversity. Those who find themselves reeling with fear, who shrink back from the challenges of life and ministry are not yet ready to lead. A leader is not just facilitator of programmes or a communication channel; he is a model of faith for the flock. The leader’s words are influential; by their words they control the spiritual climate of the team. Thus, in all situations, he must speak not from fear or doubt but from wholehearted faith in God.
Dear Lord, I desire to serve you with every ounce of my strength and vigor. Sustain my spirit so that I may follow you wholeheartedly. In the face of adversity, remind me of your promises and cause me to do your will. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
