Text: Exo. 17:11-12
True leaders are those who can influence others as a result of their minds not because they do not have needs. Every leader have needs that must be met.
Every leader desires the confidence of his followers. You will boost the effectiveness of your leader if you have confidence in him.
“Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority”, Heb. 13:17NIV. Your submission to the authority of your leader shows that you trust is sense of judgement.
Another essential support we can offer to our leaders is our prayers. When “Moses” hands becomes weak strengthen it by your prayers. Paul side to Philemon “And one thing more: Prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be restored to you in answer to your prayers” Philem.1:22. Though in prison but Paul trusted the prayer support of the saint.
What have you done to met the need of your leader. Remember Heb. 7:7 without controversy the less is bless of the greater.
Prayer: Father help me to do my part to support those you have placed over me. In Jesus Name.
