6 And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon their faces: and the glory of the Lord appeared unto them.Numbers 20:6
Moses and Aaron responded to the rebellious, questioning response of their people by going to God humbly in intercessory prayer, seeking direction from Him. They didn’t know how to respond. God was gracious to them. He didn’t just give them an answer. He gave them His presence. This presence was described here as “the glory of the Lord”.
Leaders who don’t know what to do (and even when we do know what to do) should value God’s solutions. It is right and necessary for godly leaders to get face down before the Lord. We should seek God’s answers in leadership. It is crucial that we glorify God, and when we follow God’s direction He will glorify Himself through our leadership. When we humble ourselves He will be exalted.
- Do you spend time with the Lord, interceding for those you are called to lead, even when they are being difficult?
- Do you seek God’s direction in your leadership?
