I don’t know about you, but when I think of empowerment I think of the great heros of the bible who conquered amazing things for God. Hebrews 11 the great roll call of faith of those who did impacting things with the empowerment of the spirit of God. Sometimes I compare, see and feel where I am at with life and leadership and I kinda feel short of empowered at times.
Reading psalm 23 made me see that David at times felt and saw inadequate, frail, fearful, rejection and sin in his life . The one core thing in reflection of David’s life and leadership was that he was a ‘man after Gods own heart’. A man that no matter what in situations and circumstances he always chased after Gods heart. A man who always knew that his empowerment came from the master creator of the universe.
Psalm 23 is a reflection of a man realising that his empowerment comes from the Shepard. That from the power source he needs nothing. That it’s God who leads him to lush meadows beside quiets waters. In the stillness of God, he finds his breath to be sent out in the right directions.
This is the empowerment… beside quiet waters and in stillness of God.
Today as you reflect on life and leadership know that you don’t have to have super powers of empowerment that can do everything, but you can have the true empowerment of the spirit found that in the stillness of God that can conquer everything.
Reflect on psalm 23, listen to the worship clip and see what the spirit wants to breath into you this day. The very Breath that breaths life of empowerment to conquer everything in and through where Christs name.
VERSE 1I was lost in a moment
A glimmer in time
Like a child chasing shadows
My back to the light
I was lost in a fog till
You caught my eye
Through the smoke and the mirrors
A glimmer of life
I know there’s a place I belong
Where I’ll see the fullness of love
A child face to face with my God Lost in
Your awesome wonder While I wait
I will not be afraid
My faith will remain all the same
My hope in the things not yet seen
Found in the greatest of these
I found love in a moment
Exploding in light
At the cross where the curtains
Were ripped from my eyes
I found heaven in pieces
In glimmer and dust
Broken glass in reflection
Till we shine like the sun
I know that You love me I know that
You love me Your love never fails
Your love never fails
When all’s said and done
All that matters is love
So let love take over
Not just in part
But in all that You are
You Let Your love take over
