I was once given a small level inscribed with the phrase “man of God.” The passage associated with this thought was Isaiah 40:31.
The combination of the text in 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 is supported by obtaining 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 remains balanced/level.
Leaders need both.
