To be a great leader

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Psalm 72

What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?

“Endow the king with your justice, O God, with your righteousness. (Psalm 72:1)
Imagine the perfect government, led by the perfect leader.
Always striking the right balance between justice and mercy.
Leading with integrity, honesty, morality and fairness for all.
David is praying that he will be this kind of leader.
I believe that this kingdom is real, and possible, and coming.
As Jesus followers, we believe that Jesus is this good king!
Jesus has beaten Satan, and reclaimed the throne for Adam.
Now we must choose, like David, to be a Jesus kind of leader.
To lead with integrity in our homes, workplaces, schools, communities.
To be kind, fair, patient, peaceful, moral, honourable.
Jesus is in charge, his Spirit is with us, he will help us.
But we must desire it, pray for it and pursue it, like David did.
Today as I go about my business, I can work towards this kingdom vision.
Will I choose to be fair, kind, honourable, etc. in my part of God’s kingdom?
PRAYER
Lord, may your kingdom come, may your will be done, in my life as it is in heaven. Bless me, that your blessing may flow through me!

  1. How can I be a blessing to those around me – whether I lead or not – no matter what the capacity or the nature of the interaction. To be a blessing: “Then all nations will be blessed through him, and they will call him blessed.18 Praise be to the Lord God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds”. There in is the answer – it is God who enables me – it is Lord Jesus who sent his Spirit – that enables me. It is through the spirit that I can do marvelous things, blessing others. O Lord, help me to be a source of blessing – enable me, I pray!

  2. What a kingdom this would be! I need to pray for the ‘kings’ daily and also strive to be a blessing to those around me. I need to be an instrument of His peace. As I live this day in Your presence, help me see Your glory from the rising of the sun till the end of the day. Guide me daily as I journey in Your presence walking in Your SonShine.

    Verse 1
    I am weak and I need Thy strength and power,
    To help me over my weakest hour.
    Let me through the darkness Thy face to see,
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

    Chorus
    Lead me, guide me along the way,
    For if you lead me I cannot stray.
    Lord, let me walk each day with Thee.
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

    Verse 2
    Help me tread in the paths of righteousness.
    Be my aid when Satan and sin oppress.
    I am putting all my trust in Thee:
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

    Verse 3
    I am lost if you take your hand from me,
    I am blind without Thy light to see.
    Lord just always let me thy servant be,
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.
