Astounding authority

Psalm 8:4-6 “What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet.”

Leader, take a moment and consider this: God is mindful of you; He visits you, whether or not you are aware of it. I bless you with allowing that truth to syphon through your intellect to your heart, and to have it settle and strengthen you in a way that no human wisdom can. Then consider, that even in your frail human form, He has crowned you with glory and honour. I bless you with rising to the place where you walk in the way to access that glory and honour. I bless you with the realisation that your place of influence is neither man-made nor a coincidence. You have been made to rule over the earth. I bless you with executing your responsibilities as steward with excellence, guided by the God of excellence. I bless you with taking up your authority and using it wisely and, contrary to what we see in the world, with mercy and truth.

Proverbs 20:28 “Mercy and truth preserve the king, and by loving-kindness he upholds his throne.”
