Leading From the place of intimacy
Leading From the place of Intimacy
Where do you stand to lead? Is it from a place of intimacy with God or from knowledge ? Anyone that says he is leading without having a real relationship with God is a boss. How do you want to use an electronic, new version of a car without consulting the Manual, can you do that? We all know that checking on the Manual of a product is making you to enter the mind of the author or producers. And in consulting the Manual, there you get to know the intention of the producer putting in place such a product.
But how on earth do you want to lead people without getting closer to the author and finisher of life, Who knows the beginning and end of every man. The way I do see intimacy in simple terms is in~to~me~see which means your coming before God is to make yourself vulnerable that is allowing Him to see into you, not trying to camouflage like some of us try to do in the place of prayer. Painting ourselves as perfect people without any blame. God knows every bit of you but, He wants you to come before Him that vulnerable for Him to give you the ability to see in~to~Him.
