As leaders, at times we can easily fall into the trap of thinking that everything depends on us. We isolate ourselves—from God and those around us—taking a “lone wolf” approach to leadership. This stands in distinct contrast to a biblical model of leadership. God honors those who acknowledge their dependence on Him, and who seek and accept wise counsel as they approach the challenges of leadership. Wisdom is shown in acknowledging our need of God’s help, and in seeking His direction and intervention, instead of edging Him out of our leadership. This is the kind of leadership that exalts God only.
Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. –Psalm 124:8
Prayer: Lord, let us joyfully and expectantly turn to You to receive the help You want to give us, so that we exalt You only and make a positive difference in the lives of others. In Jesus’ name, amen.
