POWER OF LEADERSHIP

I believe everyone wants to control and have power over their circumstances. I believe God has given us power! He has given us power and dominion over the earth, in fact He has given us the same supernatural power that Jesus had and more! We are supernatural beings. John 14:12 (NIV) Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

Where there is fear, insecurity, anger and bitterness sometimes people will manipulate others to try control their circumstances. We were never meant to have power over people to use them for our purpose. instead we were called to serve others in the greatest capacity to affect the world around us.

The power in leadership comes from exercising who we are meant to be.

Jesus trained his disciples as leaders and he gave them power! They went out and use their leadership nature that God had given them and found out who they really were in Christ.

Jesus didn’t tell them you can’t be great. instead he told them how to be great! Be a servant! In essence he was saying Use what I have given you to serve others and you will become great.

He has given us power over the enemy, power to get wealth, power over all the enemy, power to cast out demons, heal the sick, raise the dead, set the captives free. He has given us His Word. he has to given us promises.

Your power and leadership will become the strongest it’s ever been when you walk out the purpose God has for your life. Then I believe you will begin to use the supernatural powers he has given you to do everything Jesus did and more!

The power in leadership is being your true self.

Our Source For Leadership

When God created the heavens and the earth and the seas, and all that in them it is. He created the fish from the sea, the trees, plants and animals from the earth, the stars from the heavens.

Genesis 1: 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Then he created man from Himself!
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

He said let us make man in our own image, after our likeness. One of our purposes for existing, is to have dominion over the earth. He has giving us creative abilities and power to rule and reign over the earth.  But our source to become a great leader, comes from our servanthood! Jesus came to serve. The more people you serve, the greater leader you will become.

If you want to be a great leader go to your source, our Heavenly Father. He gave each of us talents and gifts to serve one another. Use your God given ability to serve as many people as you can through your gifts and talents, and you will grow to become the greatest leader you could ever hope to be.

Life Of A Leader

Are You Living The Life Of A Leader Or In The Life Of A Slave?

harriet-tubman-tells-it-how-it-is.png

If you have received the Lord Jesus Christ in your heart, you have the spirit of leadership within you. God has given you authority and power for his plans and purposes for your life, and to impact the life of others. The problem with many who are supposed to be walking in authority and leadership is, they still have the mentality of a slave.

Paul said your attitude should be the same as that of Jesus Christ and be renewed in the spirit of your mind. That doesn’t mean we are supposed to have preconceived ideas of our own, it means we are supposed to be led by the Spirit. We have to change the way we think!

We know that the subconscious rules our natural thinking. The Bible says as a man thinks so is he. So whatever we believe about ourselves, becomes true to us. The life of a true leader believes every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, and they change their thoughts to His thoughts and walk in His authority!!

The right attitude of a leader is humility. That doesn’t mean you are a slave! Definition of humility: HUMIL’ITY, n. L. humilitas.1. In ethics, freedom from pride and arrogance; humbleness of mind; a modest estimate of one’s own worth. In theology, humility consists in lowliness of mind; a deep sense of one’s own unworthiness in the sight of God, self-abasement, penitence for sin, and submission to the divine will. Before honor is humility. Prov.15. It means you’re willing to be led and have a teachable spirit to lead others.

To become a leader we have to have the right mental conditioning. We have to allow the Holy Spirit to be our teacher and guide through the Word of God and prayer. Through right mental conditioning , the Holy Spirit will train us to be a leader and to walk in authority.

The great leaders in the Bible believed by faith. They were not defeated by their circumstances and did not embrace the mentality of a slave, but they believed and trusted in God!

Hebrews 11: 33 (NKJV) … who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weaknesses were made strong, became violent in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens, women received they’re dead raised to life again.

The source of your thoughts will become your life. Let the Word of God dwell in you richly. Surrender the slave mentality, recondition your mind with the powerful tools of the Word of God and prayer, and through His Spirit, become the true leader God intended you to be.

Leadership Skills To Stay In Business

In order to STAY IN BUSINESS you have to develop leadership skills required for the entrepreneur!

PUT GOD FIRST! Matthew 6:33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. REALIZE that God can show you things that NOBODY can! He said in Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV) Call unto me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.
Failure is NOT an option! You have to develop a leadership mindset to be absolutely certain, that failure is not an option – Every single day!!

God gets the glory! Do you lack the confidence you need? Have confidence of your faith IN GOD to work through you. HE gets the glory!! Phil 2:13 (KJV) For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Switch – Change the way you think in a moment’s notice. This is a requirement to let go of the past and stay out of fear. the Bible says in Luke 9:62 (NIV) Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” I definitely don’t want to look back on my past. I want to always look forward. I use the image of a light switch to keep me focused anytime I sense my mind going off in a direction that it’s not supposed to. I vividly turn on a light switch as a reminder to switch back my thoughts to the path of light that I am supposed to be on, and to continue pursuing the vision God gave me.

USE YOUR TIME WISELY! Spend most of your time on what you are passionate about. Develop new skills, advance in training, focus on your vision, and make preparation. Do these things regardless if you get paid to do them or not to begin with, and the money will come, because what you are passionate about and your vision, is what you were created for. Proverbs 22:29 (ESV) Do you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.

TAKE ACTION! The Bible says Proverbs 6:6-8 Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise, Which, having no chief, Officer or ruler, Prepares her food in the summer And gathers her provision in the harvest. Do you ever see ants sleeping or just doing nothing? They are always moving, always driven by their destiny. They don’t lack direction. Each ant has it’s own purpose and will fight to the death to defend it. Get moving towards your destiny, Take the necessary action!!

DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS! Learn what you are supposed learn and do what YOU are supposed to do.

START WHERE YOU ARE! Don’t worry about what you don’t know or haven’t learned, JUST START. Put yourself through your own boot camp. Be the master of your destiny!

IF YOU DO WHAT YOU GOD CALLED YOU TO DO, HE WILL TAKE CARE OF THE REST AND HE WILL EVEN SEND THE AID THAT YOU NEED TO COMPLETE IT!
Phil 1:6 (NIV) being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Great Leaders do not seek followers!

Want to become a great leader? Mother Teresa said, “DON’T WAIT FOR LEADERS; DO IT ALONE, PERSON TO PERSON. True leaders do not seek followers, instead they are driven by their conviction of purpose and pursue it with passion. They inspire others who willingly follow them because the declared vision is worth dying for.
