Leadership Devo of the Week: 2 Chronicles 17:5

“The Lord established the kingdom under his control; and all Judah brought gifts to Jehoshaphat, so that he had great wealth and honor.” The king’s great wealth, honor, and power come to him as an extension of God’s kingdom’s control.  In ministry leadership there is always a temptation to think we are in charge and run things, even
good things.  Is my leadership rooted in and submitted to the Kingdom of God in Christ?  Am I aware that any leadership I have flows as an extension “under his control?” Lead me not into a power trip temptation. Amen.
