Earning the Right to Lead (2)

Earning the Right to Lead (2)

“If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously.” Ro 12:8 NLT

Earning the right to lead calls for asking yourself: (1) Can I live with the results of this decision? Before you launch out into something be sure you have what it takes to handle it. If you can barely cope now, how will you handle more? Before God builds the ministry He builds the man or woman, because added success brings added responsibility. (2) Is the return worth the investment? When you overcommit and overextend yourself, the first thing that suffers is your time with God. The next thing that suffers is your family. And without the covering of both, you’ll be vulnerable. There are a lot of good causes in this world, but God will only prosper you when you focus on what He has called you to do. (3) Are my expectations realistic? Hudson Taylor said, “Attempt great things for God and expect great things from God.” When human wisdom and ability won’t take you a step further, faith will, because faith holds the hand of God. And with God, “All things are possible” (Mt 19:26 NKJV). Just make sure you’re operating in faith and not presumption! (4) How can I survive today in order to thrive tomorrow? Obstacles and opposition are inevitable; they’re part of the journey. But you must not allow them to make you doubt God and what He’s called you to do. Be like Abraham—don’t “stagger,” stand on God’s Word. “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was also able to perform” (Ro 4:20-21).

to force the message house a bit, however instead of that,
this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.
