You Are A Leader
The new revelation that you have influence and you are a leader can feel daunting and overwhelming at times, it can make you feel like the weight of the world has been put on your shoulders. This feeling may leave you wanting to quit before you start or at the very least hide from the responsibility of influence.
Be assured, you are fully equipped and ready for this responsibility, calling and purpose. You are not just equipped, protected and ready, but you have also been given a suit of armor for your protection. God has provided a way for you to fight the good fight and be protected while doing it.
Your influence has to be guarded and protected because the enemy’s purpose is to kill, steal and destroy as it says in John 10:10. We are engaged in a battle, that battle is over your influence.
The battle isn’t something we join when we accept the fact that we have influence, the battle has always existed. As soon as you realize that the battle has always been over your soul and your influence then you can be prepared, you can armor up, and you can fight with courage and strength.
“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to
stand firm against all strategies of the devil.”
Ephesians 6:10,11 NLT
All the courage and strength you will ever need will come from “the Lord and His mighty power.” Let’s be honest, changing your world and the world around you will require courage and strength. It requires us to take every interaction seriously. We must think before speaking, weigh options, be intentional about every interaction you have and at the same time grow personally, grow spiritually and armor up.
God is with you, in all circumstances, battles, trials and tests, He is helping you, cheering you on, protecting you, comforting you and encouraging you to be strong and courageous. Do not let the lies of the enemy drown out these words. Listen to the truths God speaks and ignore the lies from the enemy. You’ve got this! You are a world changer!
