On my desk I have a small level with the words “man of God.” The passage written below this thought is Isaiah 40:31.
The combination of the idea expressed by Isaiah and the visual image of the level communicates two powerful messages.
One, Isaiah indicates the man of God is one who is waiting for the Lord. Such activity by the man of God will obtain new strength and an ability to tirelessly endure.
Two, the image of the level is a constant reminder that the man of God must remain balanced. Regardless of the challenges that tend to create imbalance, the man of God keeps level.
These two ideas are directly related to the leadership God desires within the church. While waiting for the Lord, spiritual leaders are strengthened, prepared to face any difficulty, travel any distance, patiently endure any temptation, and overcome any obstacle.
These areas are also related to the necessity of remaining balanced. Spiritual leaders understand the responsibility of family and ministry, determined to find ways to balance both.
Find an image to help you lead with strength and balance.
