Spiritual leaders understand the need to rely upon God. They are reliant upon His guidance, direction, strength, and provisions.
Spiritual leaders are also aware of the fact that followers are also reliant upon them for the same.
Guidance provides advice and instruction in how to live.
Direction shows the way, primarily the way to heaven.
Strength is needed to keep moving toward the right goal.
Provisions are given to continue, even when all else fails.
These four areas are all directly related to our reliance upon God and leading His people. May our role never be taken lightly.
