Psalm 82:3-4 (GNT) Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked
God raises up leaders to take on causes that are much greater than themselves. However, these causes are often first birthed as a result of a personal crisis or conviction; then this leads to a larger cause.
Martin Luther King had a personal conviction that racial discrimination was wrong. He sought to change this through preaching and nonviolent demonstrations. It wasn’t long before this became the conviction of others and it became a movement larger than any one person.
My own ministry to those in the marketplace first began as a personal crisis. This developed later into a call to serve believers in the marketplace. The marketplace ministry has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my life! At the end of the day, you will find your purpose and call its greater than you!
Point to ponder – Has the Lord allowed a crisis in your life? God often raises leaders, champions, trailblazers, and begins movements as a result of a personal crisis in a leader’s life.
