Combat Ready Devotional # 9

Do not fret when wicked men seem to succeed!  Do not envy evildoers!For they will quickly dry up like grass, and wither away like plants.

Trust in the Lord and do what is right!

Settle in the land and maintain your integrity!

Psalm 37:1-3

Trust in The Lord

We see it every day; people who don’t love God succeed in every thing they do. They are very successful on the outside but we never see the turmoil in their hearts. Just because we fail at something doesn’t mean God isn’t with us. Just because someone else succeeds doesn’t mean God is with them.

Trust in the Lord and do what is right. Don’t worry about the riches of this world because there are far better riches in heaven. Don’t worry about how the wicked men and women prosper. Only worry about doing the right thing and living inside God’s will.

Bible Quotes on Leadership

What are your favorite leadership quotes (whether from the Bible or not)? This is a short list I compiled from the Bible. Enjoy:

Wait! Also check out the 3 leadership qualities Part 1, 2, & 3.

Elders who provide effective leadership must be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard in speaking and teaching. For the scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and“The worker deserves hispay.” 

1 Timothy 5:17, 18

And God has placed in the church first apostlessecond prophetsthird teachersthen miraclesgifts of healinghelps,gifts of leadershipdifferent kinds of tongues.

1 Corinthians 12:28

This saying is trustworthy: “If someone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a goodwork.” The overseer then must be above reproachthe husband of one wife, temperateself-controlledrespectablehospitablean able teacher, not a drunkardnot violentbutgentlenot contentiousfree from the love of money. He must manage his own householdwell and keep his children in control without losing his dignity. But if someone does notknow how to manage his own householdhow will he care for the church of God? He must not be a recent convert or he may become arrogant and fall into the punishment that the devilwill exact. And he must be well thought of by those outside the faith, so that he may notfall into disgrace and be caught by the devil’s trap.

1 Timothy 3:1-7

Deacons likewise must be dignified, not two-faced, not given to excessive drinking, not greedy for gain, holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 3:10 Andthese also must be tested first and then let them serve as deacons if they are found blamelessLikewise also their wives must be dignifiednot slanderoustemperatefaithful in every respect. Deacons must be husbands of one wife and good managers of their children andtheir own households. For those who have served well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and great boldness in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 3:8-13

Obey your leaders and submit to themfor they keep watch over your souls and will give an account for their work. Let them do this with joy and not with complaintsfor this would be no advantage for you.

Hebrews 13:17

When there is no guidance a nation fallsbut there is success in the abundance of counselors.

Proverbs 11:14

Doing wickedness is an abomination to kingsbecause a throne is established in righteousness.

Proverbs 16:12

A dispute also started among them over which of them was to be regarded as the greatest. So Jesus said to them“The kings of the Gentiles lord it over themand those in authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’  Not so with you; instead the one who is greatest among you must become like the youngestand the leader like the one who serves. For who is greaterthe one who is seated at the table, or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is seated at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.

Luke 22:24-27

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, The experts in the law and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat. Therefore pay attention to what they tell you and do it. But do not do what they dofor they do not practice what they teach. They tie up heavyloads, hard to carryand put them on men’s shouldersbut they themselves are not willing even to lift a finger to move them. They do all their deeds to be seen by peoplefor they make their phylacteries wide and their tassels long. They love the place of honor atbanquets and the best seats in the synagogues and elaborate greetings in the marketplacesand to have people call them ‘Rabbi.’ But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’  for you have one Teacher and you are all brothers. And call no one your ‘father’ on earthfor you have one Fatherwho is in heaven. Nor are you to be called ‘teacher,’ for you have one teacher, the Christ. The greatest among you will be your servant. And whoeverexalts himself will be humbledand whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

Matthew 23:1-12

In the same wayyou who are younger, be subject to the eldersAnd all of you, clotheyourselves with humility toward one anotherbecause God opposes the proud but givesgrace to the humble. And God will exalt you in due time, if you humble yourselves under his mighty hand by casting all your cares on him because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:5-7

At that time the disciples came to Jesus saying“Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? He called a childhad him stand among themand said“I tell you the truth, unless you turn around and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven! Whoever then humbles himself like this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 18:1-4

For I consider myself not at all inferior to those “super-apostles.” And even if I am unskilled in speakingyet I am certainly not so in knowledgeIndeedwe have made this plain to you in everything in every wayOr did I commit a sin by humbling myself so that youcould be exaltedbecause I proclaimed the gospel of God to you free of chargeI robbedother churches by receiving support from them so that I could serve you! When I was with you and was in needI was not a burden to anyonefor the brothers who came from Macedonia fully supplied my needs. I kept myself from being a burden to you in any way,and will continue to do soAs the truth of Christ is in methis boasting of mine will not be stopped in the regions of Achaia. Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! And what I am doing I will continue to doso that I may eliminate any opportunity for those who want a chance to be regarded as our equals in the things they boast about. For such people are false apostlesdeceitful workersdisguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonderfor even Satan disguises himself as an angel of lightTherefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousnesswhose end will correspond to their actions.

2 Corinthians 11:5-15

Do not seek your own good, but the good of the other person.

1 Corinthians 10:24

Leave them! They are blind guides. If someone who is blind leads another who is blind, both will fall into a pit.”

Matthew 15:14

The Lord is my shepherdI lack nothingHe takes me to lush pastureshe leads me to refreshing waterHe restores my strengthHe leads me down the right paths for the sake of his reputationEven when I must walk through the darkest valleyI fear no dangerfor you are with meyour rod and your staff reassure meYou prepare a feast before me in plain sight of my enemiesYou refresh my head with oilmy cup is completely fullSurely your goodness and faithfulness will pursue me all my days, and I will live in the Lord’s house for the rest of my life.

Psalm 23
