Leadership Is Not Leading People


Leadership Is Not Leading People

There are always many workers than leaders because leadership is expensive. Leadership is taking the lead and not leading people (as erroneously perceived). It’s a sacrifice. To become a leader, you must be stretched and go extra miles to accomplish a specific task. Whether you’re black or white, yellow or brown; a man or woman, short or tall, if you could pay the price, the world would begin to celebrate you.

Leadership isn’t ruling people but serving people. it can’t be imposed but conferred. Your quality input and excellence in your output in a specific field makes people refer to you as their leader. People used to think that politicians are the only leaders we have while this isn’t true, there are also leaders in every field. If some politicians receive some hand shakes from Bill Gate, it would go into their CV’S.

We serve our way to the top. David was in service when he was called to the throne. Joseph served his way to the top. Jesus served his way up to decoration. Be empowered by the spirit of servant hood.

Leadership is setting the pace, finding the path and blazing the trail. It’s setting examples for others to follow. Show me a man who is diligent in his business, you have find he who is the leader. Life is business! Leaders are those who go to work and actually work (it demands high level discipline). They are managers of self, time, energy and resources (If the TV box is stealing your time, it’s stealing your destiny. Go to hell! Say to that TV box)

When God created Adam, He gave him a managerial role to play (Gen.2:15). The require skill is management skill, you need to be trained for it. You need quality information about financial, human and material resources. Understanding equals outstanding anywhere, anyday, anytime. Leaders are thinkers. Leadership demands high level of intellectual cost. People who approach a subject matter with a common sense end up with a common result and that is why they are called common men (uncommon approach results into uncommon results). You need to approach life with a special knowledge by doing thorough findings on how it actually works. Then by applying the acquired knowledge . Wisdom is applied knowledge. Jesus the wisdom itself says,

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man which built his house upon a rock: [25] And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock (Mat.7:24-25)

Leadership is expensive and that is why we have few leaders but many workers. We will always have plenty workers than leaders across generations. It demands high level 4d’s – decision, determination, dedication and discipline – to emerge as a leader. …….but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits ( Daniel 11:32). Exploits is expensive.

A comfort zone is a danger zone. There are no record breakers in their comfort zones. Breaking records require stretching out. Nothing becomes extraordinary on its own, it’s our extraordinary efforts that make it so. If everyone reading this would work at it, imagine how many leaders we would be having. A leader is not the one who is leading people but the one who is taking the lead in every field of life.

[12] Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; [13] And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed (Hebrews 12:12 -13).

7 Wonders of Praise


The number one requirement for praising God is breath and not bread. If you’re alive that means you would survive. Because you slept and woke up is a good reason to praise God. If you have ever lost anything, God is the reason you have never lost everything.

Let Everything That Hath Breath Praise The Lord

(1). God Detests Fault Finders

If you’re not joyful, you would be fretful. God isn’t moved by your cry and complains, He is moved by your faith. Praising God in the midst of hopeless situation is a sign of strong faith (Acts.16:25-26). If you could turn all your bitterness and despondencies into appreciations and thanksgivings, you would see a dramatic change is all aspects of your life. God hates Murmurers and grumblers . All those who murmured in the wilderness were destroyed by the destroyers – 1Cor.10:10

Paul and Silas Sang And The Supernatural Manifested

(2). Supernatural Atmosphere

Praise is the cheapest way to provoke the release of divine presence (Acts.16:25-26). Listen to this: You don’t make things happen in life, it’s the presence of God that make things come to be. It’s the aura of God that cause things to manifest. If you want to see the supernatural (God), dive into a practical praiseful lifestyle. Praise is where God live.

(3). Supernatural Multiplication

Those who work less and have more are in the company of praise warriors. You can’t praise God and be small (Jer.33:19). Multiplication is a function of appreciation. Our God is a God of additions (Mat.6:33) and multiplications. Anytime Jesus faced what seems like an embarrassing situation, He gave thanks and the miraculous flowed. He gave thanks and the seemingly small loaves of bread and fishes multiplied.

And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would – Jhn.6:11

Those who are few in life are those who are living a ‘praiseless‘ lifestyle. Nothing dies in the hands of a praise warrior. Flourished business is a product of a praiseful lifestyle (righteousness inclusive).

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord , and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon – Psm. 92:1/12

And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. – Jer.30:19

(4). Supernatural Ideas

You can’t praise God and be stranded of ideas. Praise is what to do when you don’t know what to do. I have seen many frustrated prayer warriors; I haven’t seen any frustrated praise warrior. When men got to their wits end you hear them say “this will take God,” what will take God will take PRAISE. Jesus, during His earthly ministry, He was never stranded of ideas (John.6:6).

(5). Supernatural Favour

Favour colours your efforts and covers your errors. There is supernatural favour in praise. When you dive into a praiseful lifestyle, you would be highly favoured before God and men. You would look like a professional in everything you do. When people see you, they smile and like you because God’s aura of favour has engulfed you.

But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask. – Mat.14:6-7

(6). Supernatural Restoration

Praise restores man back to his original estate. To be depressed and pressed down aren’t the plans of God for you. Your situation can’t be as hopeless as the case of the dry bones. If the dried bones could jack back to life (Ez.37), your seemingly impossible situation would take a new shape. Are you having an health issue or the doctors have termed your case as medically impossible? Dive into praise and you will be restored back to normal. Whatsoever can’t be found in Jesus isn’t permitted to be found in you.

(7). Praise Warfare

Praise is a major in any major conflict. Praise is the spiritual medium through which we transfer our battles to God. The Israelites didn’t had to shoot an arrow before their enemies helped to kill one another. This battle isn’t yours, sit and be still. You’re a spectator in your own battle, hold your peace and let God take over. And when God take over, your battle is over.

And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten – 2Chro.20:22

In summary, the seven wonders of praise discussed are concisely listed as follows:

  • God detests fault finders.
  • There is supernatural atmosphere in praise.
  • There is supernatural multiplication in praise.
  • There are supernatural ideas in praise.
  • There is supernatural favour in praise.
  • There is supernatural restoration in praise.
  • Praise can be used in doing warfare (not just only prayer as many believe, it’s not a minor but a major).

Brethren, you’re not suppose to be harassed and intimidated by the devil with all kinds of afflictions and satanic oppressions. This wasn’t so in the beginning. Therefore, i pray in the name of Jesus you shall be restored back to your original estate. Praise is one of the proven major gateways to the supernatural. The door to the supernatural is opened to anyone who is interested. The supernatural becomes your natural when you consciously cultivate the habit of a praiseful lifestyle.
