Follow The Kneeler


As a leader, don’t ever expect someone to effectively follow you, if you have never learned how to effectively follow the Ultimate Leader (God). Many leaders make the mistake of trying to make decisions on their own without true counsel from God. As a young child I used to play a game called “Follow The Leader.” In this game, you were “out” if you did not do what the “leader” did. Therefore, the key was to watch the leader very closely to make sure that what you did was exactly what the leader desired to be done.
Whether we realize it or not, God is our leader, and if we desire to stay in the game of life, we must make sure that we are following His lead. One of the key ways to find out where He is leading you is to spend time in prayer. Now I know that some of you may be saying, “I really don’t have time to seriously set aside for prayer because I’m very busy.”  Well, it was Charles Spurgeon who said,

“Sometimes we think that we are too busy to pray. That is a great mistake, for praying is a savings of time.”  A. J. Gordon said, “You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed.”

It has been said that there are four ways that God answers prayer:

1. No, not yet.

2. No, I love you too much.

3. Yes, I thought you’d never ask.

4. Yes, and here’s more.

I simply want to say that you may not always get the answer you want, but He will always give you the answer you need.

Every time we pray, our horizon is altered, our attitude is altered, and our outlook on life is altered, all for the better. The amazing thing is that we don’t pray more!

Frequent kneeling will always keep you in good standing with God.

By the way, people tend to always “follow the kneeler.”

Kneeling More,
