MESSAGE:

Read – Open Heavens 3 November 2019

The desire to be a leader is good. It shows that you see a need to help and serve others. But the role of a leader is a serious and difficult one. This is why you need to be prayerful if you truly desire to be a good leader.

It is through prayers that you can rightly lead. Without prayer, you can take wrong advice or be easily manipulated and you will definitely take wrong actions.

Praying signifies that you are still connected to God, and that you acknowledge that your leadership is by His grace. Why do you think some people removed as prefects in school?

They must have mishandled or misrepresented their position which happens because they are leading without God’s involvement. You need to understand that you need spiritual assistance.

Moreover, there are people who envy your position and are willing to do anything to get it. You need to be very prayerful so that you won’t lose what should truly be yours.

KEY POINT:
Stay connected to God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Jeremiah 36-37, Philemon 1

Hymn 1
1. My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Savior divine!
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
Oh, let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!

2. May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm and changeless be,
A living fire!

3. While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.

4. When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold sullen stream
Shall o’er me roll;
Blest Savior, then, in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Oh, bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul.
