Governing God's Way

Governing God's Way

Inspirational brief messages connecting the timeless principles of scripture to the timely issues of our day for those who serve, lead and govern. King Solomon, the wisest public servant leader to have ever lived, left us with this truth – there is nothing new under the sun and what has been, will be. What was true for him and those who served, led and governed in HIS day, is just as true for those who do the same today. Timeless principles for times like these.

A lot of times, the question for public servant leaders is not, "can I, but will I?" We are blessed to be a blessing - doing for others what is within our power and means to do. Leaders should be givers. Our leader, Jesus the Christ, was a giver. He gave the ultimate, his life; paying a debt that we owed but could not pay. Obviously for most of us, it would never be that we would have to pay with our life a debt of another,...

Season 2 kicks off with the timely topic of the danger of forming unholy alliances; and, as a public servant leader, of surrounding yourself only with those who will tell you what you want to hear. As a public servant leader, you have to be careful with whom you align and you must have the courage to surround yourself with staff and advisors who will tell you the truth, even when truth is the last thing you want to hear. This episo...

A  great coach never coaches to the scoreboard even when it looks as though his or her team may lose. Great coaches have studied their opponents from afar long before their team takes the field and have already planned the x’s and o’s of how they are going to take them out. They don’t panic because of the opponent, they execute their plan in spite of the opponent. No matter how formidable your opponent or difficult the obstacles - ...

Your purpose for winning that race or being hired into that position of authority was purposed by God for Kingdom purpose - not merely for you to draw a paycheck and/or enjoy the perks and privilege of office. You've been positioned for purpose!

Learn from David how to succeed when you work for an envious and insecure boss.

As a public servant leader, you may wear the label Democrat or Republican, but if you name the name of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life, the world systems are against you. If you follow the lamb, Satan doesn't care if you call yourself an elephant or donkey, he's coming for you - and especially as you serve and lead in his world system of government. Not with the world, Contra Mundum!

Surely, if Jesus was who John thought He was, had faith to believe He was, and had proclaimed to the world who He was, he and others wouldn’t be going through all of this. Don’t we at times feel this way?

When we become exhausted, both physically and emotionally, we become like Elijah, discouraged, and depressed. When we become discouraged, and depressed because of fatigue, we become ineffective and fearful. And all the wrong and negative “what ifs” flood our mind and shut us down. That’s what the enemy wants.  God’s remedy?  As we near the end of a very exhausting and brutal year, God’s remedy for you and for me is the same as it w...

President Lyndon Johnson once famously said, “If you’re in politics and you can’t tell when you walk into a room who’s for you and who’s against you, then you’re in the wrong line of work. As a leader, you have to know – not assume – but know who is for you and who is against you.  Make no assumptions and you’ll make no mistakes. Mistakes are made by people who assume they know. The ability to discern who is for you and who’s not m...

God’s people have always and will always in public service, live and serve underneath the canopy of intimidation - from citizens, constituents, rivals, bosses, even colleagues. Especially if there are at stake influence, money or positions of power. Count on it.  But don’t be fooled, don’t be fearful, don’t give in to it and certainly don’t run from it. They can't touch you...

No matter if on paper you’re the leader or if your name and title are on the door – you will only be what you inwardly believe yourself to be.  Has God made you the head, yet you still see yourself as the tail?

There are leaders, servant leaders, and public servant leaders. What sets public servant leaders apart is that unlike private sector, servant leaders, everything public servant leaders do is subject to public scrutiny and there are so many diverse interests to satisfy. There are no open records requests that probe the actions and lives of leaders in the private sector. Public servant leaders aren't afforded that luxury. Their l...

What has God put in your spirit and on your heart to do, yet you won’t because you fear the opinions of people more than you trust the plan and will of God? Our past is preparation for our future prepared by God in time past. And many of us will die having missed it.

Do your words accurately portray who you say you are Christ? Self-portraits are painted by our words and every social media post, text and e-mail is a stroke of the brush.  As a public servant leader, you can bank on having two things - private enemies and fake friends. And both will not hesitate to use against you, words you thought were being spoken and exchanged between friends.

For good or for bad, given time, we will become most like the ones we stick with the closest. It's time to re-evaluate every relationship. We don't have time anymore to waste on people who subtract and not add to us.

The great tragedy today among God’s people and leaders is we have become such an individualistic, pull ourselves up by our bootstraps society that it is easy to overlook the fact that we need others in order to reach our goals.

Persevering through the pain of betrayal is perhaps the most difficult because betrayal comes from the heart and hand of someone we trust and would least suspect. We expect an enemy to harm us because that’s what enemies do. But those closest to us not only can harm but hurt us because it is the last thing we expect them to do.

We can never allow jealous people to stop us. Nor as followers of Jesus Christ allow jealousy to prompt us to try and hinder others. We each have our own unique purpose.  If you can’t help, don’t hinder and no matter how hard anyone else tries to hinder you, they won’t succeed.
