Who should not fear you, King of the nations? This is your due. Among all the wise leaders of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is no one like you. Jeremiah 10:7
Over the years, there have been various leaders who have risen up to be considered great leaders. Some of these were leaders of nations, others were leaders in the business world or in the church. Some of these leaders are known to most people in their nation and sometimes even around the world, while there are many other leaders who are never known outside of their small sphere of influence.
One of the common things among all the great leaders that have ever existed is that they each gave of themselves for a greater cause. They were able to take a bad situation and turn it around. The wisdom of some of them in the way they led is astounding to most people.
Yet, as great as all these people were and are, there is no one that is completely like God, Himself. God is the one who made the heavens and the earth, and everything in them both. He created every person and gave them breath to breathe.
Think about how great the universe is and how many things and people there are on this earth. The amount is overwhelming to think about, yet, God has perfect control of everything that is going on.
And what leader is willing to give of himself in order to save a group of people who hate and despise him? God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His own life in order that they may live, and this was done while everyone hated Him.
As you realize what God has done for you and everyone else, you need to give Him all the praise. Fear only Him. Trust in God for everything. He is the wisest and the best. Do not look to the leaders of this world, they will fail and lead you wrong, God will not.
Along with praising Him, strive to be like God. Be a leader as God is a leader. Put the needs of others first. This shows God’s true love, compassion and mercy for every person on this planet.
I pray today that you will know God as your leader; that you will follow God in all His ways; that you will fear no person on this earth; and that you will strive to be a leader that leads as God does.
