TRUE LEADERS DON’T NEED PEOPLE!
This sort of statement would be shocking to a lot of people in the religious circle. But fundamental to every true leadership I have observed is the facts that, “If you need people you can’t lead people.”
True leaders have broken free from the need for peoples acceptance, and approval. They have severed their hearts from making people their crutches. God will never allow His leader ‘need’ those they are sent to deliver. YeHoVaH spoke to my heart one morning, “You are not looking for people, they are looking for you.”
When a leader is ALWAYS needing people for finance, for comfort, for encouragement TO DO what God sent him to do, he will lose his divine honor before those people. You can’t confront those you need. Why? For fear of losing them!
When the YeHoVaH told me, “You are not looking for people, they are looking for you.” He showed me the principle that changed my life from Isaiah 60.
Work at increasing the degree of the light!
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise on you, and his glory shall be seen on you” Isaiah 60:1-2
People will come because they need you. They need the light upon you. This is the light that comes through prayer and revelation. It is the light that answers to their confusion and misery. Instead of looking around to people, spend your time to arise and shine! People are looking for you! People need you!
“Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” Isaiah 60:3
Nations will come, kings will come to you, because those in darkness needs the man with the light, the man with light doesn’t need them!
“Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you.” Isaiah 60:5
People will come willingly to partner with you, they will willfully bring resources to you, because they need you! Brace yourself, Arise and shine! Let God’s glory come upon you through prayer. FOCUS on God not men.
