God places a special anointing on His leaders, so we should value and respect them. Moses and Joshua are 2 great examples.

God instilled in Moses what was needed to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Moses had a special anointing like no other! He could talk directly to God and that same anointing was transferred to Joshua:

Numbers 27:15-17
“Moses said to the Lord, ‘May the Lord, the God of the spirits of all mankind, appoint a man over this community to go out and come in before them, one who will lead them out and bring them in, so the Lord’s people will not be like sheep without a shepherd’.”

After Moses laid hands on Joshua, God took time and gave Joshua a pep talk to prepare him to lead the people out of Egypt:

Joshua 1:1-3, 5
“The Lord said to Joshua…’You and all these people, get ready to cross Jordan River into the land I am about to give them – to the Israelites. I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you’.”

Major points:

* Sometimes God gives us instruction through our leaders rather than communicating directly to us (ex. Pastor’s sermon).  Problem is – if we aren’t listening, we may miss it.

followleader* A real leader must be keen to the movements of God- able to pick up on how God is flowing and know when to make a change.

* A real leader fears God – doesn’t want to disappoint or upset God.

Something to think about:
We often focus on a person’s title rather than a person’s annointing. When God places annointed leaders in your life (like a pastor or spiritual mentor), don’t take them for granted. Learn as much as you can from them, pray for them, and be willing to follow them.

  1. when I think of leaders I don’t only think about pastor’s, the president and other political leaders, I think about husbands the leaders of our familys and what a charge they have on their lives to lead their wives, children, family and friends. I stopped to think of how much my husband covers me. What a wonderful feeling to be under a leader that is lead by GOD! what a wonderful message…Gina
