A Kingdom Leader has the habit of praying and hearing God. Their spirituality is not based on human voices but the voice of God. They pray for and with others. They also engage in thoughtful reflection to invite deep thinking and discussion. The disciplines of prayer, Bible study, solitude and silence are essential components in the life of a balanced leader.
Who prays with you? Are you deaf to God’s voice because you refuse to listen and open the book that reveals God’s voice? Are you reading the Scriptures consistently and often? Are you unfamiliar with the Bible’s words? Do you believe it is the word of life that can transform, renew and create? Does your practice reflect your spoken belief? One of the very few habits of Jesus is going to lonely places and praying.
Luke 22:39 says, and having gone out, He proceeded according to His custom to the mount of Olivet. And the disciples also followed with Him. (1)
We are praying that you develop the same habits as Jesus.
