“Servant-Style Leadership”

As I begin to ponder on the qualities of a leader from God’s point of view.  From my readings and communication with the LORD, his most excellent leaders had no problems being servants first to the LORD.

God is the one who raises a leader up.  I have learned through study of God’s word, God detests a prideful heart and a haughty look (spirit).  God says in the Book of Proverbs 16:5 (NIV), that”The LORD detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.” 

So for me as I lead as humbly as I know how, always monitoring my pride that it does not rise up and swindle me!

My  walk with God is a conscious effort as I evaluate my heart and motives daily to ensure it lines up with God’s purpose as all of my knowledge, businesses, materials, trades, it all belongs to God.  He has only lent it to me and my loved ones.  I own nothing!

We came in this world without any riches, statuses,  and we are not able to take our position, power, money to our resting places.  That is why there is a story behind my PRAISE!  It is God’s grace and mercy that has kept me thus far, and God’s grace and mercy that will take protect me until he returns.

Let us not serve God for the gifts we receive or blessings we may receive but,  let us serve Him for who HE is.  When one comes into full knowledge of God, one has to be prepared to hear and deliver the truth according to what God tells them. Finally, my child, be strong and very courageous.  (Ephesians: 10-18, NIV)

Praises be to God, the almighty for all His mercies and revelation.  Help us to continue to be mighty servant leaders for your people, prepare our hearts and minds to work.  Though the work is plenty, the laborers are few.  (Luke 10:2, NIV) So let us do our do diligence to go ye therefore, making disciples, and baptizing people, in the name of God, the Father; Jesus, the son; and our Counselor, the Holy Spirit.

“Our Heavenly Calendar”

Our times and events have been established on the God’s Heavenly calendar, and the events shall proceed and come forth in fullness by having faith in God. (Isaiah 55:11) In God, there are no voids.  

I urge you to encourage yourself daily as the LORD’s servant, David did.  Enjoy your journey and your peace shall be established thus says the LORD in the book of Isaiah.  A little background on the book of Isaiah is that Isaiah was regarded as the greatest Old Testament Prophets.  The name Isaiah means “Salvation Jehovah” or ” The LORD is Salvation.”   Isaiah was privileged to know the future but not the exact time-frame when the revealed events would happen, but I want to point out that Isaiah was still faithful to give the word of the LORD where he was instructed, and that the LORD heard his call, and equipped and provided to him his requests.  Isaiah’s response is a great pattern for present day believers of God to model after.

Nehemiah speaks of how God keep his covenant of love to those who love him and obey His commands.  It is my prayer to God on behalf of the body of believers, Let God’s ears be attentive to all His children in such a time as this, and His eyes wide open to hear the prayers’ that your servants pray before you day and night, night and day, in Jesus name, Amen, Amen, and Amen!

The GOD of Heaven and Earth, over ALL things, will give US the victory! Praise the LORD where you stand!  Hope you are having an outstanding week, full of opportunities and wisdom.  Feel free to subscribe to Stimulation to Success Ministries today, share your testimony, or request prayer.

“Prayer for Good Relationships”

“My command is this:  Love each other as I have loved you.”

John 15:12

Let us pray!

Lord, I pray for each member of God’s kingdom– that we would get along.  Despite our variety of backgrounds and opinions, help us to live and worship in complete harmony.  Give us the ability to value and respect our differences.  Protect us against divisions, and help us to be like-minded.  We all have different gifts, roles, and functions, but we are collectively one body, Lord– Yours.  Bind us together with ties of faith and fruitfulness in Jesus Name, Amen (Excerpt from my Personal Prayer Book).

The LORD placed on my heart to pray for his people, including myself, that we move forward with enthusiasm and zeal for HIM, for HIS GLORY, and HIS people as we obtain favor!  Praise the LORD!  Feel free to follow and/or subscribe to Stimulation to Success today!
