10 Signs Of A Great Leader!

March 12, 2014

10 Signs Of A Great Leader!God has placed greatness inside of everyone, however, he expects us to search out why we were created. The bible confirms this in Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
 to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” In a previous post I explained that everyone was created with a purpose. In still, there are quite a few people who go through life never really knowing why they were created. When we understand why we are here and begin to maximize our potential we become leaders.  Being a leader is a great responsibility and God expects much from those who have acquired leadership status.

In Luke 12:48 we find this scripture “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” The dictionary defines leader as, a person or thing that leads. I believe God has called everyone to be a leader. He has created everyone uniquely.  When we grasp the concept found in Psalms 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;” then we understand that everyone has something they can expose others too. 

God is the master of exposing people to a new way of thinking.  God took a shepherd boy and made him king. In Acts 13:22 God said “I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.”  David, like many of us, was called to be a leader. There was something about David that caused God to be very pleased with him.  In order for us to be great leaders like David was, I believe it is worthwhile for us to study the life of David starting at the time he was anointed to be king.

While studying David I found 10 things that made him a great leader.

  1. Chosen– God selected David to be king.  Only try to lead what God has graced you to lead.
  2. Balanced– David took care of himself physically, spiritually, and mentally.
  3. Anointed– God had David anointed in front of his family. You do not fit in with others. God has called you to be different. Other people will be able to sense your uniqueness.
  4. Sent into Trouble– David was selected to go before troubled King Saul and make things better.  God will send you into a troubled environment because he knows you have the ability to make it better.
  5. Multitalented– David was able to do more than one thing.  God doesn’t expect us to master everything but he does expect us to be able to do more than one thing.
  6. Useful– Whenever David played the harp the evil spirit left Saul. The people and your environment should be better when you come around.
  7. Not Fearful– David saw Goliath as something that must be brought down. Goliath was mocking God and threatening the Israelites future.   A leader sees an obstacle as something they will and must overcome.
  8. Disliked By Others– David’s brother was angry with him simply because David was willing to lead.  Walking in your gift will cause others who haven’t realized their potential to become upset with you.
  9. ConquerorDavid killed Goliath but that wasn’t it. After he killed him he cut off his head and took it to King Saul. After you overcome your obstacle you need to have a sign that says to others I was not defeated.
  10. Spark Curiosity David’s fearlessness made King Saul curious about him. There ought to be something about you that causes others to want to know more about you.
