Leaders Are Led

Submitted by James Higginbotham on January 25, 2010 – 4:33 amNo Comment

Who is leading you? As a leader, we always have others leading us (even if we don’t know it).

I’m led by leadership book authors, my mentors, leaders immediately around me, and by leaders at work.

There is one type of leadership I could not do without – the leadership of the Holy Spirit through prayer. It is during my daily prayer time where God speaks to me. He leads me on what I should be doing for the day. He leads me in developing good habits and calling me on the bad ones. He leads me through His relationship to me.

Failing to build this relationship on a daily basis through His leadership in prayer causes me to lose perspective. Worse, it causes me to focus on what I want, not what He wants.

If we aren’t leading as if Jesus makes a difference in our life, then we aren’t leading for our local church. This requires us to have an ever-growing relationship with Him in prayer.

We all must be led. Who is leading you?
