When the Spirit Leads

When the Spirit Leads

Jesus’ example shows the importance of timing as a key element in leadership. Aligning Himself closely with the Father’s perspective, He recognized the times in which He lived and knew His part of God’s unfolding story. Prompted by the Spirit, He knew when and how to respond to those around Him. Peter, following Jesus’ example, became the first to take Jesus’ message across cultural boundaries. Developing God’s perspective allows us to respond when the time is right. Following our leader, we will be ready to respond when the Spirit leads.

The Spirit told me to have no hesitation about going with them. These six brothers also went with me, and we entered the man’s house.—Acts 11:12

Prayer: Spirit, remind us to wait, to pray, to listen, so that we will recognize Your voice and be ready to respond when You lead. We ask this in Jesus’ name, so that Jesus will be seen and the Father will be exalted in and through our lives, amen.
