Most leaders I meet with are overworked, tired, and weighed down with too much to do in too little time. Almost all are generous, sacrificial, and compassionate. Yet the pressure of ministry demands smothers their ability to listen deeply to God’s voice that speaks to the essence of the problems facing them.
I know this too well.
It is easy to rush headlong into quick-fix solutions to problems – hoping they dissipate, only to find out that we have now planted the seed of a new problem!
What has happened? We have forgotten Sabbath and silence. These are the places from which we hear the quiet wisdom of God if we are to provide creative leadership for what is before us.
Let me invite you to consider 3 biblical texts that I mention in this podcast, allowing them to breathe rest into your soul:
The Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before Him. Habakkuk 2:20
Do not be afraid…. The Lord will fight for you. You need only to be still. Ex. 14:22-23
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him. – Ps. 37:7
