COUNTDOWN TO OCTOBER 8, 2016 STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
…………………………………………………………..
CONCEPTUAL ANALYSIS. PART FOUR
…………………………………………………………….
in few hours from now, the highly publicised strategic leadership summit for business executives, corporate and brand managers, scholars, administrators, pastors, gospel ministers, youth leaders, undergraduates and Bible College students, will hold. Just before then, kindly read this:
At the base of every tangible and effective leadership is a productive spiritual lifestyle. The expression that ‘the spiritual controls the physical’ is not a porous slang, neither is it a dry rhetoric. Rather, it is a statement of fact, indeed, it is the truth. Because there is nothing the man of God can do without the God of man, he, who must therefore speak or lead on behalf of God must receive signals from Heaven, or else, he would be basing his coaching or mentoring enterprise on a shaky platform. Leaders who rely only on what they read from books to instruct others end up being booed. Leaders who rely only on what they can see to direct others, soon slide into naked irrelevance and ultimate extinction. Leaders who stand the test of time are those who are in constant touch with the Master. The perfect example of an effective leader remains our Lord Jesus Christ. And he said:’follow me and I will make you… ‘. So, leaders who are made are those who are sensitive to His directive and direction. But perhaps more critical to this discourse is John 5.30 . Jesus said:’ I can of my own do nothing. As I hear, I judge… ‘ . In other words, no spiritual audacity, no pontificative leadership. There is therefore, a symbiotic relationship between spiritual leadership and effective prayer structure. So, the prayer that works is not the cosmetic or syndicated one. It is the one that emanates from the spirit. This amplfies the point being made by great leaders all over the world that true and lasting success in life, career and ministry is contingent on a result-oriented prayer lifestyle. Those who do not pray end up being preys in the course of destiny.
To open our eyes to the dynamics of spiritual leadership, and then lead us to pray, is Rev.Ayo Ezekiel. A man of God with an unusual revelation and insight about the potency of prayers, in all its ramifications. I knew this reverend gentleman over 20 years in the great city of Ibadan, Nigeria,. All the way from the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, Christian Missionary Foundation, Fellowship of Christian Communicators in Africa and Madagascar and now at the New Covenant Church, it has awesome testimonies, via the instrumentality of prayers. At Ibadan, in the the mid 1990s, we would both go out to strategic locations to pray. Two decades after, we are thanking God, we did!
