The servant of God must have enough time separated to hear from God. As the ministry grows, time will come when you have to have others around you to assist not to control you. Leaders helps to lift some of the weight from you. They make sure things are running well and prepare the church or service. A tired pastor cannot be effective. Exodus 18:17-18 So Moses’ father-in-law said to him, “The thing that you do is not good. Both you and these people who are with you will surely wear yourselves out. For this thing is too much for you; you are not able to perform it by yourself.
Depend on the Holy Spirit to show you the right people to be leaders else you’ll get people who want to run you. When you are called, there things God want to achieve and He is speaking to you not a committee. Acts 13:2 As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
As you serve under the servants of God, ask for wisdom to be able to serve faithfully. Servanthood requires anointing. Servants of God are human beings, because of the close relationship with them, you’ll also know their weaknesses but the weaknesses must not change how you see them. David understood this while serving under Saul, in the mist of all challenges, he continued to respect him. 1 Samuel 24:5-6 But then David’s conscience began bothering him because he had cut Saul’s robe. He said to his men, “The LORD forbid that I should do this to my lord the king. I shouldn’t attack the LORD’s anointed one, for the LORD himself has chosen him.”
When Moses decide to marry the Ethiopian woman, Aaron and Miriam spoke against him and said things which angered God. There is our thoughts and there is the thought of God. Numbers 12:8 I speak with him face to face, Even plainly, and not in dark sayings; And he sees the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid To speak against My servant Moses?”
David is perhaps a perfect example of the weaknesses that the elect can have yet God continues to use them and hold them dear. 2 Samuel 11:2 Late one afternoon, after his midday rest, David got out of bed and was walking on the roof of the palace. As he looked out over the city, he noticed a woman of unusual beauty taking a bath.
Ask God to give you a disciplined mind so that your thoughts about your master are always positive. Sometimes they may deal with you in an unfair manner like Saul did to David. As you serve, it’s not everyday where it will be all smiles sometimes, there will be disagreements but always remember why you met.
