LEADERS ARE MADE, NOT BORN!

LEADERS ARE MADE, NOT BORN!

“Who am I, that I should go?”  Ex 3:11 NIV

Why does God call people who don’t necessarily feel qualified? So we’ll depend on Him more than we depend on ourselves. When God called Moses, he asked, “Who am I, that I should go?” When God called Gideon, he replied, “I am the least in my family” (Jdg 6:15 NIV). When God called Solomon, he said, “I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties” (1Ki 3:7 NIV). When God called Jeremiah, he replied, “I do not know how to speak” (Jer 1:6 NIV). Yet they all became great leaders. How did they do it? By saying yes to God’s call, learning from their mistakes and growing wiser, and drawing strength from God each day. So whether your God-given assignment in life seems large or small, you can grow into it. A vocal teacher once told Mary Martin, the famous American singer, that she had an inferior voice and would never make it in the field of music. But she determined otherwise, and for over half a century she reigned as one of the country’s most loved and popular singers. Mary overcame her seeming deficiency through determination and self-discipline. The Greek statesman Demosthenes had such a speech impediment as a boy that he was embarrassed to speak before a group. But he invested long hours by the sea in unrelenting practice to overcome his problem—and as a result, became one of the most famous orators of all time. You may not have a natural aptitude for leadership, but under God’s guidance you can develop into a leader. Why? Because even though you may be limited, the God who lives within you isn’t!
