Just Give Up

Alot of times in our leadership, we come to a point where we must make a decision for growth. We know that we can’t possibly control all that is given to us and we must find someone capable enough, skilled enough, gifted enough, passionate enough, strong-willed enough, careful enough, and worried-enough that it reminds ourselves of us. But the reality is that the person just described doesn’t exist except for in you.

Only you have the gifts and talents that you have in the distribution that you have them in. But you know that you have to pass some things on in order to grow past this and take the next step. Even Jesus as His mission was accomplished left the fate of His movement in the hands of mere mortals (not just a cliche in this instance).

Yeah there was a calling, yeah there was training, yeah there were decisions and times of struggle. But then there was a release. Jesus handed over the reigns. Where is that area or program or ministry that you just need to give up on? Where do you know God is leading you to give up control?

No man is fit to command another that cannot command himself.
