Leadership shouldn't be as difficult as it's sometimes made out to be. Yet, in the same breath, it is difficult and full of challenge for many reasons; probably too many to numerate here. In this time and day when everything is under scrutiny, even the things you wouldn't think would be; it seems that all is on the table.
Yet, we fail to realize, or perhaps remember, both in our own lives and those of our leaders, the words that Pastor spoke in the opening minutes of his sermon, yesterday.
"The more extensive the forecast, the greater the risk of error."
There is so much to be expounded on here, I wish I had time... but alas, I changed my alarm last night then failed to actually turn it out. But the words are self-explanatory or perhaps, pithy is best.
Decisions shouldn't be made while walking on egg-shells regarding the future; but leaders are decision makers and this is a time for prudence. We need leadership, church and otherwise to make good decisions and to cast great vision.
Thus, pray with me, this #seniorPastorMonday. Pray for wise counsel and good decisions. Pray for foresight as they cast vision and conviction as they made and implement their decisions. Pray for a move of the Spirit in their ministries and families, as they seek the face of God and His will. May His plans and purposes be fulfilled as they carry out their calling. May their be a grace in times of error and missed marks. Pray God would continue to work all things for His glory; even the faults and failures of many.
In His timing.
For His service.
For His glory.
