2Samuel 7: 1-7
A LEADER’s destination is to a place where he would eventually becomes a RULER of those he leads and those he does not lead. At this point he would begin to reign in the affairs of men based on his decisions and the counsel of those he leads . . .
When the time to rule comes, those he has been leading would become governors, captains of fifties and thousands and caretakers of territories he rules. Leading is a prerequisite to rulership that also helps in grooming people that would lead groups of people in time of the ruler’s reign.
A ruler is one who has leaders capable of executing his commands on his behalf . . . But David’s rulership took an unusual path inclined towards the LORD after he had settled on the throne in Israel. He thought in his heart that The LORD should be honoured with a House that ‘befits’ HIM.
The Davidic Leadeship is that leadership that settles into the sovereign rulership of GOD who rules in the affairs of men. It was this understanding that made David’s leadership and rulership the best ever recorded before CHRIST came and showed us the perfected version.
And according to JESUS’ perfection of Davidic Leadership, the leader becomes empty of himself the moment he becomes a ruler and becomes filled with GOD and GOD alone. The path of Leadership according to GOD’s design is to make leaders (men) understand that leadership is man’s responsibility but rulership is the sovereign responsibility of GOD and function accordingly.
Indeed, the journey of Leadership is the journey that starts from being nothing to GOD to being NOTHING to the world! Leadership is a journey to DEATH (to self) and LIFE (in GOD).
Lead a Life through the path HE has set for you; let HIM rule your heart so that your end can be what HE had purposed for you before the beginning . . .
HE IS STILL THE WAY, TRUTH AND THE LIFE!
HE HAS NOT CHANGED AND HE WILL NEVER CHANGE!
FOLLOW HIM TODAY; LET HIS SPIRIT IN YOU GUIDE YOU TO HIS ETERNITY!
