A Kingdom Leader is aware that Christ sees him during any circumstance they face. Even if they are struggling against a storm of problems Christ is aware of the situation. But interestingly enough on some occasions Christ leaves us in certain situations because we are in need of learning.
Do you feel like you are going in circles with certain issues in your leadership? Have you missed the lessons Christ is trying to teach you? He allowed you to be there and can see you. Is he intending on passing you by? Have you missed a key lesson? Is your heart hard? Is your heart no longer tender for his teaching?
I find it fascinating that Jesus comes walking on the water and intends to pass them by. These guys are professional fishermen and they can’t even go a short distance in a storm.
Mark 6:48b (NIV)
Shorty before dawn he went out to them, walking on the lake. He was about to pass by them,
Look around and see where Christ is in relation to your struggles. He may be closer than you think. His presence may be blinding you.
Pray for us as we pray for you today.
