Good Leadership

‘The Lord spoke to Moses.’ Numbers 1:1 NIV

A good leader is like a ship’s good captain; they plan the whole trip in their mind before they leave the dock. They have a clear vision of their destination, they understand what it will take to get there, they know who needs to be on board for the trip to be successful, and they recognise obstacles long before they appear on the horizon. And because they prepare well, good leaders can take their people just about anywhere.

Moses was such a leader. He spent forty days praying and fasting on a mountain, refusing to leave until he understood what God wanted him to do. Then he came back and communicated it to the people so they could participate in the vision. In Leadership Promises For Your Week, Dr John Maxwell writes: ‘As a good leader, Moses methodically arranged the tribal camps in the wilderness (see Numbers 2:34). We would do well to… organise as he did.

(1) Give time for planning and organising. Determine your primary purpose.

(2) Understand where you are before trying to develop a strategy.

(3) Prioritise the needs and goals of the team by asking the right questions.

(4) Write goals that are realistic, measurable, and convicting.

(5) Clarify goals and communicate with your team.

(6) Identify possible obstacles. Have an open system approach to your planning.

(7) Budget your cost and time by scheduling everything you can and setting deadlines.

(8) Study the results. Evaluation prevents stagnation and exaggeration.’

If you want God to bless your plan, you must have a plan He can bless. And it must come from God Himself. So, talk to God today about His plan for your life.

FASTING IS NECESSARY
Open Heavens
for Thursday, December 26, 2013
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

FASTING IS NECESSARY

To relate with the Holy Spirit, you must be holy. You must also exercise a living faith, pray and fast. Some people will tell you that because had finished the work of salvation, there is no need to fast. To them, fasting is completely needless and is some form of self-inflicted punishment. But they forget that...More
