I Love Truth as I am a Truth seeker, and therefore I say the following with a non compromising smile and conviction. What religious or world leader are we worshiping and making an idol in our heart to? There is a difference between giving a leader honor and respect, verses worshipping them, following their every move in hopes they see you or you hoping to become like them. Shouldn’t we be hoping we catch a glimpse of the Father and thus become that which we behold?
Perhaps if we are taking a sober view of ourselves, we will see there are current leaders we may be weighing and comparing every new thing we hear, against their words; Boasting in their wisdom and praising them for it, versus turning to the ONE TRUE GOD and praising Him for it. Hey I know that I am not the only prophet the Lord is revealing this real issue of man’s carnal nature to. As a leader I have a obligation so therefore, I can’t and won’t ignore this as everything that is planted in man’s glory with be shaken and destroyed. Everything that is planted in God Glory will be deeply rooted and unshakable.
We are ALL capable of receiving God’s Wisdom. The Lord is no respecters of persons. Leaders are wonderful amazing people. They come in all seasoned flavors. They Lead you to a truth that will set you free to be able to step into a new dimension of revelation on your own. However Its a good thing to know that our own hearts and that of the leaders, will be tested and brought through the all consuming fire, so all that is left is the perfection of God and to Him be given all the Glory.
“All of you God, None of me”
This is a good sobering reminder to hear time to time as we are witnessing some pretty powerful leaders arise in both political and religious sectors. Especially in this great time of constant shifting that is happening in all of creation. Its moving very swiftly and the currents can be turbulent if your focus is on man and not God. If you are a leader yourself, be ever so careful with what God has given you to lead, careful not to lead them to self thus taking their eyes off of God Himself the source of all.
He does say “He traps the wise in the snare of their own cleverness.”
Encourage those you lead to have their own relationship with the Lord and to weigh everything you teach them before the presence of God and His Living Word. This will protect you both. Ask The Lord to search your heart and reveal any way that is in you that is not of Him and to purge it from you. This will be pleasing to the Father and an example of a true leadership. This following scripture is an amazing quote and reminder that is is not about any one particular leader rather all of us as a whole for everything was made by and for God and His purposes.
1 Corinthians 3 21 So don’t boast about following a particular human leader. For everything belongs to you— 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Peter, or the world, or life and death, or the present and the future. Everything belongs to you, 23 and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.
