are generally associated with some form of recovery. They exist for individuals recovering from addictions and their spouses. They exist for those who suffer grief in the loss of a loved one, or from divorce. They even exist for people who struggle with eating disorders.
Support groups exist for a number of reasons and they are beneficial to those who use them. At this point, a couple of questions should be considered for our leadership.
Who makes up the support group for leaders? Wisdom would suggest the potential of other leaders involved in a group. Put together a core group of others who will share and contribute to the group’s design.
What benefit will they provide? They serve as a reminder that others have and do experience the same challenges. They also establish a form of accountability.
A support system will make a difference in how we continue to grow and develop our leadership. Who makes up the group, the purpose of the group’s design, and what we apply to our own leadership is the determining factor to its success.
Prayer seems to be a given when it comes to spiritual leadership. We know about prayer. We study about prayer. We talk about prayer. We teach about prayer.
However, do we believe in the power of prayer?
Most people can attest to the number of times God answered prayers in powerful ways. We have seen Him answer in unexpected ways that went beyond our request.
We are thankful for the avenue of prayer and we desire the kind of faith that knows God will continue to answer our requests.
Perhaps the struggle we have deals with the temptation to doubt when various trials arise and challenge our faith in God’s power to answer…yet again.
When it comes to prayer, there is no magic formula, special words, proper position, or time of the day that makes a difference.
For Christians, prayer is about the simplicity of a humble heart that trusts God to answer in His time, in His ways, and in our best interest.
We may not always understand, but to pray without ceasing is the foundation to powerful leadership.
Isaiah 53 is considered the greatest Old Testament prophecy of Christ.
How could Isaiah accurately predict Jesus’ death in such detail seven centuries in advance? Only by the power of the Holy Spirit (1 Peter 1:10-12; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
Two facts about Jesus
Being innocent, He did not deserve the cruelty He suffered (v. 9).
He is worthy of the exaltation He received (vv. 10-12).
