DAVIDIC LEADERSHIP: Response to Distress

1Samuel 30: 1-10

On the path of leadership, there are many who tread the same path afterwards . . . This means that the weight of many people are on your shoulders because they look up to God through you and also because they are in their position because if your leadership.

A follower might not respond to adversity or distress very well but a leader must learn how to do so because without a proper response, doom ad destruction awaits.

The proper response was what David did when his men were about to stone him – he turned to the LORD and received strength from HIM. He did not react to their distress because reaction is an opposite force to action. He was not ready to defend himself before his men but turn to God for strength and he got it. His action was more of response than reaction . . .

Our action towards distress must be response and not reaction . . . There are so many things that would not go as planned not because God is not able to make things happen but because there are obstacles and oppositions all around waging war against the reality of God. OUR HELP IN TIMES OF DISTRESS COMES FROM THE LORD! We must keep looking up to HIM as the Author and Finisher of the Faith that initiated our journey in HIM!

The UnGodly (VI): Godly Response To The Doubting Hearts

Jude 22-23

As much as the Godly’s primary duty is to maintain Godliness that is established by the power of God, he is also responsible for bringing those in doubt to that point of assuredness in God by showing them the Truth with gentleness and snatching those who are bound for destruction with every force necessary.

To some, he is meant to portray God’s greatness which is in His abundance of His mercy; thereby establishing a deep reverence for God in their hearts. And if God wills it, He may give him the wisdom to craft out systems and ordinances that would guide the doubting minds and hearts in functioning according to God’s will till they begin to walk with HIM on their own accord.

** It must be noted that Godliness does not care about what people want but the express will of the LORD. Even at that, Godliness must be enforced by God’s wisdom so that people who are meant to live by it would have no excuse for doing otherwise.

Selah!
