Follow The Leader
"When leaders lead in Israel, when the people willingly offer themselves, Bless the Lord!" -Judges 5:2
According to Webster, “a leader is a person who leads or commands a group, organization, or country.”However, since I’ve become an adult I realize that a leader is simply someone who makes other leaders. We all have the capability to do this, but sometimes we don't have the confidence, understanding, or desire to rise to the occasion.
This morning, during my daily reading I read the story of Deborah in the Bible. Deborah sat under a tree and gave the people Godly advice, and words of wisdom. However, when she told a man name Barak that God said he needed to arise and go lead a war, he told her that he would only go if she went with him. (Girl Power!) I'm sure that Deborah was just fine with her current life of sitting under the tree everyday, but when she saw that there was a need that she needed to fill she arose and led the army with Barak. When they went to battle the Lord handed their enemies over to them and gave them the victory!
This story was a beautiful reminder that we all are leaders and have the ability to lead others. It doesn't matter if we have been a follower our entire life, or may have been told that we don't have leadership qualities. The only thing that matters is when God calls you, listen and have a willing heart to say "Yes, I will go." That decision alone will place you in the highest leadership position, which is a position with God, but also ensures complete and total victory in every area of your life.
