As leader you take a stand, holding the line while others gather sufficient strength to step up. You are a forerunner. You make all the difference.

Every forerunner-leader is a point man . . . one who takes the lead and opens the way. With inner strength despite all kinds of pressures, and courage for critical decisions, integrity in the one who leads launches vision for many to follow.

The baton is passing. Those who were followers now step up into the cadence, to take the point, make up the hedge and watch for those God sends, those chosen to gather there.

Persuaded that every word of the Lord proves true, the forerunner resolves to keep going. Anchored by words from the Lord, the forerunner’s voice to the nation calls forth greatness and is an example for great ones to follow . . . born for such a time as this!

Amen.

Joshua 1:1-9
