Leadership Rule 103: Leaders are regularly out with the old and in with the new
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
When was the last time you REALLY believed God for something? Sometimes our faith can seem stagnant because our life is “alright”. At times, we can seem to be comfortable in “alright” and settle for “average”. But why should you settle? God hasn’t settled! God wants your life to be of his excellence, his power, his strength and his divinity and wants that because he knows if he can show off in one person’s life, then he can show off in the entire world!
Today’s Leadership Rule is SIMPLE: Be out with the old and in with the new! Let the past be the past and begin to believe God for new things. Let’s all try these three steps together:
Step 1: Take a look at your life and the lives of others around you. Have you settled and become comfortable with a sibling or loved one not knowing who Jesus is? Get uncomfortable with it! Jesus desires to save that loved one. Today…say a little prayer for that person’s salvation and watch God and believe in him to do miracles.
Step 2: Ask yourself…when was the last time I just rested in God? When was the last time you just let everything else go for a while? Today…take 5 minutes to simply sit or lay down, close your eyes and just think on things above and listen for God. Colossians 3:2 (NIV) 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Step 3: Look yourself in the mirror…and no matter what…SMILE. Because, God is smiling down on you. Numbers 6:25 (NLT) May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you.
Be blessed today and always.
All the best,
