Over the next several weeks, I am going to be writing about things I have learned as a leader. I have to start with this truth… GOD NEVER CHANGES. Starting a church has been a great experience for me. It’s also been extremely difficult. I’ve experienced lots of joy, lots of pain, disappointment, excitement, etc. The list could go on forever. As I think back, I realize something once again. He never changes. People change. Sometimes they get better. Sometimes they get worse. Sometimes they join the church. Sometimes they fall away. But through all of this, God never changes. We can count on him. We can rely on him. We can trust him. He is a rock. Deuteronomy 32:4 says ” He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.”
As a leader, the most important thing you can do is to have a relationship with God. Because he never changes, that relationship then becomes the bedrock of your life. During the difficulties of leading the fact that he is a rock will sustain you.
We may be shaken, but he is unshakable!
