Unlikely Leader

Do you view yourself as an unlikely leader?

When God told Gideon that he would save Israel, Gideon replied

“…how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least of my father’s house.” (Jdg 6:15, NKJV)

Before he accepted God’s calling, Gideon asked God for confirmation, more than once, Jdg 6:17, Jdg 6:36-40.

Once Gideon accepted it, he became a powerful leader.

If you view yourself as an unlikely leader, don’t rule yourself out.

Instead, ask God what He wants. Listen to Him and do what He says.

    No, not unlikely at all! From birth, my mom was instrumental in helping me see my leadership gifts in so many ways. I’m eternally grateful to her because she constantly reassured me “You can be whatever you want to be” as she boosted my strengths and helped me overcome my deficiencies. Everyone should be so blessed to have such an affirming mom! She was not a reluctant leader either ❤️👍🏽😜

    A good word. Many years ago I was this unlikely leader. I looked for God’s affirmation and He gave it. Now in my later years I am more sensitive to His voice and no longer question the roles He has for me. I still consider myself an unlikely leader, but follow His lead trusting Him to bring the fruits of my labor.

    Great thoughts! I feel called and inspired to lead but don’t always believe it. Your post reminded me of one of my favorite scriptures.

    “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)
