Running Ahead or Lagging Behind

Running Ahead or Lagging Behind

In our rush to see results, we can find ourselves outpacing God. Conversely, when the time is right for action, we might lag behind. Through the trusting relationships Jesus built with His disciples, He was able to shape them, correct them, or urge them on as needed. He does the same for us today. As leaders following Jesus, we need to keep pace both with Him and with those in our leadership spheres. Where might you be running ahead of or lagging behind Jesus and others?

They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him.—Mark 10:32

Prayer: Jesus, lead me. Let me keep in step with You and in step with those You have called me to lead. Help me not to run ahead or lag behind. I ask in Your name, amen.
