Chapter-a-Day Psalm 21

The king rejoices in your strength, Lord. Psalm 21:1

I’ve been thinking a lot about leadership lately as I seek God’s help in molding me into a more capable leader.

This past week I’ve been personally disappointed by two different leaders. There is a unique difference between the two.

I am confident that one of them rejoices in God’s strength and places his trust in God. While he has disappointed me to the point of hurt, I find it easy to forgive and submit to his leadership despite the mistakes I feel he is making.

I am unsure exactly where the other puts his trust, which is unnerving to me. His word and actions appear to me to reveal that his strength is in himself and flawed mankind. I find myself repelled. I don’t trust him.

Today I am reminded to find my strength in God, both as a leader and as a follower.
