Acting first + praying second = leading in your own power.

Dr. Lawless regularly blogs here and without fail I’m always encouraged and challenged by his words.

Leaders often lead in their own power. I’m guilty of this. I wrongly and foolishly think that my competency comes from my aptitude, wisdom and experiences. In so doing, I lead out of my own power, not God’s. The Apostle Paul writes that our competency comes from God (2 Corinthians 3:5). Therefore, our leadership capacity and capability should be dependent upon Him.

Read this short little post and ask the Lord to search your heart (Psalm 139:23) to see if any of these behaviors of people leading in their own power is something you’re guilty of.
