Receiving Scraps from Ravens?

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote
from Veritas Leadership Journal at HeartPathJournal.net
by David J. Hall

“Sometimes His miracles are not in the form that we think they should be. We might think we need money for the next step, but He may provide a different resource. We might think that He will open big doors to big places, but instead He may lead us into a desert. We might think we need gift certificates to a grocery store, but He may instead command Ravens to bring us scraps of food.”

Pastors, Master the Art of Prayer

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote
from Veritas Leadership Journal at HeartPathJournal.net
by David J. Hall

The soul-winner must be a master of the art of prayer. You cannot bring souls to God if you go not to God yourself. You must get your battle-ax, and your weapons of war, from the armoury of sacred communication with Christ. If you are much alone with Jesus, you will catch His Spirit; you will be fired with the flame that burned in His breast, and consumed His life.”

( Charles Spurgeon / from “The Soul Winner” )

A Daily Appearance Before God

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote
from Veritas Leadership Journal at HeartPathJournal.net

Human nature being what it is, if we stand before our boss everyday to verify the quality of our work and the progress we are making in personal and professional development, then we become much more focused and motivated in our daily job and life performance.

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

( ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭2:15‬ )

The Apostle Paul encouraged his protege, Timothy, to regularly present himself to God for review. This wasn’t because God was otherwise unaware of Timothy’s life and ministry, but because the voluntary frequent (daily perhaps) accountability with God would have a powerful daily effect upon Timothy’s anointed professionalism, his character development, and his truthful and wise handling of the scriptures in his teaching and in his leadership.

The Jesus Renewal: “Come Away with Me”

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote
from Veritas Leadership Journal at HeartPathJournal.net

image-5

Church Boards: Consider refreshing your church’s staff by sending them on a get-away for renewal, beyond the easy reach of those whom they serve on a daily basis. Jesus planned that with His own Apostles who had just returned from a ministry tour.

“The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to Him all they had done and taught. Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, He said to them,

Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.’

So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.”

( djh / “Come Away with Me” / Mark 6:30-32 )

Peace in the Here and Now

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote

from Veritas Leadership Journal at HeartPathJournal.net

Are you presently unable to minister in your usual forum due to health or circumstances that are beyond your control? While I encourage you to pray for God’s help in the area of your troubles, I also encourage you to be at peace with where He has you.

He never ‘wastes’ the lives nor the deaths of His servants. Ask the Lord to define for you the mission that He has for you within the arena which you are currently ‘stuck.’

The Mary vs. Martha Mindset

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote

from Veritas Leadership Journal at HeartPathJournal.net
by David J. Hall

image-5

The difference between Mary & Martha during Jesus’ visit (see Luke 10 & Matthew 7):

🔹Martha was serving Jesus, but Mary was encountering Jesus.

🔹Martha was doing good things, but Mary was doing the PRIMARY thing.

🔹Martha was being hospitable to Jesus in her home, Mary was being hospitable to Jesus in her heart.

🔹Martha was concerned about what her guests might think of her less-than-perfect hospitality, Mary was concerned with what Jesus wanted to do in her own life.

🔹Martha recognized the special influence Jesus had in their social gathering, Mary recognized the special influence Jesus was having in her own heart and soul.

🔹Martha was good at seeing people’s needs and recruiting others to jump-in, Mary was good at seeing the PRIMARY need and personally drawing near to Jesus for fulfillment.

When Our Crown Becomes Thorns

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote

from Veritas Leadership Journal at HeartPathJournal.net

image-5

The Crown for Leadership which becomes a Crown of Thorns should not be a surprise, it is not a strange thing. Jesus warns us that if people hated Him, they would hate us too. So, in the words of Peter, it was ‘to this you were called’ (1 Peter 2:20-23)

How did Jesus find the strength to endure and to keep depression at bay while people hated Him? ‘He entrusted Himself to Him who judges justly’ (v.23). He did this through praying alone often, very often!

Fueled by Vision or Sedated by Fantasy?

A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote

from Veritas Leadership Journal at HeartPathJournal.net

image-5

A couple of practical definitions that relate to our daily work ethic:

“A Vision is a snapshot revelation of the future that inspires one everyday to work diligently at building toward its full realization.”

“A Fantasy is a greed-feeding daydream of the future that lulls one to believe that work is unnecessary for its fulfillment, expecting the daydream’s mysterious materialization.”

Are we fueled by a Vision, or sedated by a Fantasy?
