The Father of Leadership

“A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.” Psalm‬ ‭68:5‬ ‭KJV‬‬

God is the Father of the fatherless. He is a Father to those who are directionless, for the Lord will give direction to those who ask. Our God is the Author and Father of leadership. He is a leader to the leaderless, for He is a good Father, and He will lead and light your path.

The Amplified Version (AMPC) expounds upon Psalm‬ ‭68:5‬‬‬ in the following manner, “A father of the fatherless and a judge and protector of the widows is God in His holy habitation.”

God is our Protector; He is our Righteous King and Great Judge.

God is our Pattern and Wisdom is His Standard, for great leaders are filled with Wisdom. Great leaders are filled with grace and with the ability to lead, love, and judge well. Choose to judge righteously and let God lead your actions.

The New Living Translation (NLT) expounds upon Psalm‬ ‭68:5‬ in the following manner, “Father to the fatherless, defender of widows—this is God, whose dwelling is holy.”

God is Holy and there is none like Him. He is filled with compassion because He is Love. God is filled with wisdom because He is Wisdom.

You cannot effectively lead others without the Wisdom of God. Ask God for Wisdom. Let Love lead your heart. Ask God to lead you, for our God is the Author and Father of leadership.

Prayer:

Father God, in the Name of Jesus, I thank You for leading my heart. Father, I choose to seek You. Father, I choose to seek Your Wisdom. Father, I choose to seek Your Face.

You are my Lord and my Great King. You are my Great Defender. Lord, You are the Potter, and I am the clay. Lord, mold me. You are the Author of my life, and I will forever follow You. Father, lead me, for You are my Righteous Judge and Great King.

You are the Father of the fatherless and my Righteous Ruler. Father, lead me and grant me the Grace to lead others well. Lord, order my steps and lead my path.

You are my Pattern. You are my heart’s desire, and there is no one like You. From age to age You stand. Lord, Your Word stands forever and You reign forevermore. You are my Lord and King, and I will forever bow to You.

In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
