>OK, first things first, only 2 people have entered my contest (see post below). So that’s it…I am up’ing the annie. Instead of a $10 lame-o gift card, I am giving away $50 to the winner of this contest….now will you play?
Here is a thought I had on leadership today….
Lets consider the word, “WITH”
Nehemiah 2:4-5, “The king asked, ‘Well, how can I help you?’ WITH a prayer to the God of heaven, I replied, ‘If it please Your Majesty and if you are pleased with me, your servant, send me to Judah to rebuild the city where my ancestors are buried.'”See the word “WITH” up there?
How many times do we forget “with” in our leadership?
I lead a person to God, but not WITH a prayer to God first.
I lead a fundraiser for the first time, but not WITH a prayer to God first.
I lead a new initiative at work, but not WITH a prayer to God first.
I lead my family to a new church, new ‘hood, new school, but not WITH a prayer to God first.
A BIG key in his leadership was Nehemiah’s “with.”
A new leading should begin WITH prayer & WITH God.
If Jesus leads you, then how can you lead without Jesus?
When we pray BEFORE any leading,
we give Jesus the right order He deserves:
He leads us; us leads others.
