Here are four ways that you can influence your leaders or the person in authority that God placed over us.
In an episode of World Impact, Dr. Billy Wilson reveals to us some ways that we could influence our leaders. In God’s Kingdom, we are all called under authority. That authority is God’s authority, however, God has also placed people in authority over us to influence and lead us according to His plan.
But do you know that we could also influence the people in authority over us? We could influence our employers, our government officials, our pastors, and even our parents.
“In order to have authority, I believe in God’s Kingdom, you must be under authority. So how do we respond to the authorities placed over us by God,” Dr. Billy asked.
Influence your leaders
He also emphasized that those people in authority over us have the capability to empower or disempower us. Just as Nehemiah influenced King Artaxerxes, we could stop our leaders from disempowering us by influencing them. Dr. Billy then continued to reference Nehemiah 2: 1-6 to tells us some ways that we could make an impact on our leaders:
- Submission and humility will touch their heart
- Be trustworthy in your service day after day
- Have discretion
- Find the favor of God
This is true not only to those people under authority but also to those people in authority. If you want to be an effective and empowering leader, you should also practice these things.
“If you’re going to be effective as a leader, you have to humble yourself, walk in discretion, and live with God’s favor in such a way that those over you will empower you to do what God’s calling you to do.”
