My Weekly Devotional - "That you may not bear it yourself alone." Nu 11:17 NKJV

Published on 7/10/2015

THE LONELINESS OF LEADERSHIP?

Moses said to God, "Why have You...laid the burden of all these people on me?" (v.11 NKJV). God replied, "Gather to Me seventy men...I will take of the Spirit that is upon you and will put the same upon them...that you may not bear it yourself alone" (vv. 16-17 NKJV).

Identify your God-given strengths, then delegate the rest to those who have strengths in your areas of weakness. Every leader is responsible for areas in which they have little or no competence. And when they try to exercise authority in those areas, they hinder everything and everybody under their watch. Put it bluntly, there are things you are responsible for that you'll never be good at, that you need to keep your nose out of and give to others!

Why do we have such a hard time doing this?:

1. Pride. Success is intoxicating and intoxicated people don't think too clearly. We assume our abilities are broader than they actually are. Admitting weakness doesn't make you less effective, it just confirms what everybody around you already knows!

2. Ignorance. We feel bad about delegating our weak areas because we assume everybody hates to do what we hate to do. Not so. You're allowing others to shine; your limitations are their opportunities.

3. IndependenceWe think if the job is to be done, it's about getting things done through others. If you can't find somebody to hand things off to, look into the mirror! The people who follow you are exactly where you've led them! If you've nobody to delegate things to, guess who needs to change?
