Andrew Wommack shared one of his biggest failures in handling people.
One of the Biggest Failures
The founder and president of Andrew Wommack Ministries, Inc., and Charis Bible College shared one of his biggest failures. It was his failure to delegate. He would counsel and pray for those in need because he felt more mature to do it. And he thought he could do it better than most people in his church.
“I was afraid that if I called… if people came forward for healing and if I let somebody else pray for them, that they may not do it as well as I did, and so honestly, I did not delegate well,” Andrew humbly admitted. This mindset is tempting for many leaders. They can burn out because they believe the lie that nobody can do it as well as they can.
Moreover, Andrew shared that he’s learned that leaders can’t effectively lots and lots of people. At the ministry, they have almost 1,100 employees, yet he only oversees 5 people – each of them deals with different groups in their ministry. That’s why it’s os important for leaders to learn how to delegate.
Leaders fear Delegation
Many leaders fail to delegate because they are perfectionists. They refuse to turn things over, fearing that others will make mistakes.
“You know, I’m amazed at how God has committed things to us and has given us such leeway that we can make mistakes and stuff, and yet he doesn’t pull back His calling,” Andrew said. It’s written in Romans 11:29, “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.”
In conclusion, learn to delegate. God has called us to do things that are bigger than ourselves. We can’t do it alone!
