TOPIC: ANGELA MERKEL: MAXIMIZE YOUR POSITION!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: PROVERBS 29: 2-14 – CLICK HERE: 4TH QUARTER HYMN SON
29 He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.
4 The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.
5 A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.
6 In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.
8 Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.
9 If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.
10 The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.
11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.
12 If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.
13 The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the Lord lighteneth both their eyes.
14 The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.
15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.
16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.
17 Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
19 A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer.
20 Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
21 He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length.
22 An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.
23 A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not.
25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.
26 Many seek the ruler’s favour; but every man’s judgment cometh from the Lord.
27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

The world is in search of good leaders. Africa especially, is in search of good leaders and leadership. In my country, Nigeria, it is a common saying that our problem is not human and material resources, but good leaders and leadership. GOD IS LEFT OUT! 1 Kings 22:29-40
God saw the qualities of good leadership in Abraham and He said, “For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and Judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which He hath spoken of him (Gen. 18:19). Verse 2 of today’s scripture says “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people moum. Leadership is a privilege and an opportunity to serve people and put smiles on their faces. Yesterday I talked about Angela Merkel. It’s said that in her 18 years of leadership no transgressions were recorded aganst her. She did not sign any of her relatives to a government post. She did not claim that she was the maker of glories.
She did not get millions in payment, nor did anyone cheer her performance, she did not receive chatters and pledges, she did not fight those who preceed her.” At a press conference, a female journalist asked her, We notice that you are wearing a suit, don’t you have any other! She replied, “I am a government employee and not a model..” At another press conference, she was asked, “Do you have House maids who clean your house, prepare your meals and so on?” She anwered, “No, I do not have servants and I do not need them. My Husband and I do his work at home every day.”
When she left office, the reactions of Germans were unprecedented. The entire population went out to their balconies and clapped spontaneously for continuous 6 minutes for this leader “who was not tempted by fashion or the lights, and did not buy real estate, cars, yachts and private planes. It was a standing ovation nationwide. Someone said these words of prayer for her, “God be upon this silent leader.” Oh, what a woman Angela Merkel is. There are many reading this piece whom God has placed in many privileged posts/positions.
Even that little corner where you are is important to God. You may be a parent, the head of a class, a cleaner in the office, a pastor leading a congregation or even a security officer; God expects the best from you in terms of leadership. You can use your influence to change the narrative of many things. Leadership is not just the glamour of an office; it is about changing people’s lives for the better. Are people feeling your impact as a leader? Like Angela Merkel, maximize that position God has given you for the good of mankind and you will leave a mark in the sands of time.

PRAYER POINTS: Take Song 3: Amazing grace…
Amazing grace (how sweet the sound)
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now I see.
2 ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed!
3 Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come:
’tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.
4 The Lord has promised good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be
as long as life endures.
5 Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
and mortal life shall cease:
I shall possess, within the veil,
a life of joy and peace.
6 The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
the sun forbear to shine;
but God, who called me here below,
will be forever mine.
