Topic: THE CHALLENGE OF BEING THE HEAD
Text: Deuteronomy 28:1, 13
📖1….”And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
📖13….And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:”
🔥The prayer of many people is to be the head of wherever they are, even believers alike. But they fail to first consider the fact that to whom the head is given, much is expected from him too…Luke 12:48. This is so because the head is the upper or front part of the body that contains and protects the brain, eyes, mouth, nose and ears. This makes the head as a person commanding most authority within a group, organization, etc. We have often prayed and prophesied to be the head and not the tail, but as prosperity doesn’t answer to prayer, most of us fail to know that being the head doesn’t answer to prayers. It answers only to readiness to bear responsibilities.
🔥🔥To be a person commanding most authority within a group, you must be a custodian of the five organs. To be that head, you must have the BRAIN to think for the rest – Philippians 4:8, 2 Chro 16:9. You must be the brain of that place you want to head, to think and feel other’s pain for them. You must be the EYES to see for others – Joshua 5:12-14a. You must have the MOUTH to speak for, and defend others – Acts 14:12. You must taste sorrow for others with your spiritual tongue – Matt 27:33-34. You must have EARS to hear for yourself and others – 1 Kgs 18:41-42. Elijah as the head, heard the sound of the rain; and when Elisha became the head, he also heard the plans of the enemy in 2 Kgs 6:8-12, for the people he spiritually headed.
🔥🔥🔥My beloved BoLD readers, are you still ready to be the head? Do you posses the NOSE to breath life into others. Because the head is the one that breathes life into the rest…Genesis 2:7. God breathed life into the dust to become a living soul, while Jesus breathed life into the Church in John 20:21-23 to receive the new life. You should know that many you want to be head of are either dusts without living souls, or are self made Christians without life. Both classes need the breath of life from the head. Finally, the experience of Ezek 37:9-10 tells us that to be the head, even though the people you are leading have no life, by your breath, you should make them to live.
🙏Heavenly Father, qualify me with all the spiritual essential attributes of the head in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Oh Lord, give me the heart of a leader that will make me to withstand every storm blowing against my life in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏O God my father, activate all the organs in my head with faith to elevate me to leadership position in Jesus’ name.
