Elite Leadership 4:#LettersToMyFellowLeaders - Excerpts From What I Learnt As LeaderIt is an Honor to Serve (It is God's throne not mine)
Hi Family and beloved Team
You are blessed, You are precious - when I think about you guys and leadership, we have not just been servants to other people but we have been servants to one another, WE ARE A FAMILY from whom our name in Heaven is derived.
I have a heavy heart because of the passing of Dr Myles Munroe which i got to know this morning from Edward Hire, We have been shaped by the principles and revelations revealed to him by God in his time on earth, As you read through this remember his words that the greatest tragedy on earth is not death but a life without purpose, when you don't know your purpose Abuse is innevitable. Let what we learnt from him continue to be something we build on and share with generations to come, I can only then ask How prepared Are you? Are you fulfilling your purpose and potential? Are you serving God with diligence?.... Let's RAY FOR HIS SON Myles jr
To add on something a little bit more about commitment to prayer, It has been told that Martin Luther prayed more than he worked, in fact if his work was more, he took more time praying and that made his work even easier, John Wesley had to say this about prayer:-
"Whether we think of; or speak to, God, whether we act or suffer for him, ALL IS PRAYER, when we have no other object than his love, and the desire of pleasing him.All that a Christian does, even in eating and sleeping, is prayer, when it is done in simplicity, according to the order of God, without either adding to or diminishing from it by his own choice. Prayer continues in the desire of the heart, though the understanding be employed on outward things."
However today I want to share on how it is an Honor to serve God and how it is a privilege.
This scripture spells out how God views me more so as a servant leader and his precious treasure.You Have Honor, You Have a Crown and All things are under your feet #Servant Leadership
Psalm 8 vs 4 What is man that You are mindful of him,And the son of man that You visit him?5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,[b]And You have crownedhim with glory and honor.6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;You have put all things under his feet,
This is what Queen Sheba told King Solomon (She Saw Something Through The Eyes Of God That Many Of Us Don't See)2 Chronicles 9:8 Blessed be the Lord your God, who delighted in you, setting you on His throne to be king for the Lord your God! Because your God has loved Israel, to establish them forever, therefore He made you king over them, to do justice and righteousness.”
It is always a DELIGHT to God when he chooses someone to serve on his throne, on his place of authority, a leader becomes accountable to God because you are a direct representation of him, everything he does starts and ends with you as the leader, that's why we have to be cautious not to abuse our place of leadership. Queen Sheba saw that and perhaps Solomon did not know and many leaders need to be reminded that the place of influence is God's, the throne he places us on is his.
Through out my time of leadership this statement that the place of leadership i am in is God's, it was and is to his delight that am leading because God has chosen and put me there, Indeed leadership comes from him. I have often said that i fear to lead without direction and many times I have been proven wrong before because some of the things that have been done in the eyes of those spiritually dead they don't understand but when you have had from God and are sure, time reveals that God has, was and is true.
So Leadership should be an honorable ambition, something that goes beyond self, goes beyond selfishness, your own self, leadership is to being Glory to God, serve people, bring forth solutions that will impact thousands of generations. To aspire to leadership is an honorable ambition - 1Timothy 3:1
Should you then seek great things for yourself? Seek them not. Jeremiah 45:5
With such an understanding, you will always know whatever good has been done is never you, you were his vessel to be used and there is no glory you take or share with God, all the glory is his.
Here are some few revelations from my life and things I have seen God work through me and how I desired to be of great Impact as God enabled me.
# I desired to be at the top to enforce change - a passion burning in me to see things done better and create an atmosphere of love for God and leadership through deep commitment to God and to my purpose at the time. - Arthur Kmo
#Quit talking about who doesn't appreciate you or love what you do, you are accountable to God first then to the people you serve - lamenting only brings grief, lay your mark by letting your work talk - Arthur Kmo
#A faithful leader is an obedient leader and this trait is much needed in the smallest of things God has called us to do - God tries every leader in the little of tasks even without their knowing take for example David with the sheep, Moses with the sheep - Arthur Kmo
#When you are given responsibilities they are preparing you for greater tasks, do it with your heart, it might be your hope in the near future and it will give people courage that leaders can be nurtured thus securing the future. - Arthur Kmo
With all this, We need to know where God has placed us is his, and we should know it is a privilege, it is an honorable thing.
I love God, I love Myself and I love my neighbors whoever they may be, Am ready each and every time to shine the Light of Jesus and Bring assured Hope to those that have lost it and to reconcile the hearts of men and God that they may love him wholly.
