“There’s no shortage of writings on the subject of leadership,” said the author of an article in a business magazine. Perhaps it is because we are facing so much political, economic and financial insecurity. Everyone is looking for a way to reorganize their thinking about how we can recover what we have lost.
Another wrote, “The increasing rate of change is causing people a lot of fear. Facing the rapid rate of change in world markets is causing uncertainty and fear and people don’t know what to believe.”
“People need something that will give them safety and answer their questions about what is going to happen next,” said a professor of economics.
“Leaders and managers are looking for the ‘silver bullet’ to solve their problems, but there is none available,” said a consultant.
One leader sounded foolish, even silly. He wrote, “Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.” But he, of all of the leaders who have taken their places in history, knew exactly what he was talking about.
From his experience as a shepherd and a king, a warrior and a parent, he had discovered that the Lord alone was able to lead him, to give him answers, provide solutions to his problems and enable him to make good decisions. He looked to his Leader, the Lord God of Israel who had led His people into paths of prosperity and peace. He looked to the ultimate Leader who had proven Himself “right” since the beginning of time. Who are you following?
Prayer: Lord, we look to You as our leader because You have never failed us, forsaken us or led us astray. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Psalm 61:2c From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
