I speak to you know of those I put into positions of authority to bring about my purposes. Some have great authority, some have small, all authority should be accepted with gratitude and humility before Me with a seeking of My wisdom to stand. No consideration is given for getting your own way, but seeking the good of others in the best way.
Many think if they give up power in decisions they will lose their footing. Unless I establish the path and the way the foundation is sand and there is no firm footing. Pride comes before a fall, but I lift up the humble and contrite.
There is an executive professionalism that is from Me. It does not look like the leadership of the world, it is how I operated while on earth. I had all authority of heaven and earth and I chose to set the captive free, not malign or speak against those in authority, but offered what was due the leadership of the day, I rebuked injustice and offense, I accomplished my tasks and completed My purpose.
My executive professionalism is strength, but not to defeat those who are cast down or bring those who are faltering lower. It is to raise those up who are struggling and make them strong. It is to stand for the right and good – a gentle strength. It is not operating out of pride but gently guiding all on the best path. It is facing each situation with a hope and faith that all can be solved without blame or condemnation knowing that I can make a way.
Those who I put in such places of authority are not to be tossed to and fro and reacting out of a need to protect oneself or cover up or even telling those higher what they want to hear to gain favor. It is transparent, pure, honest, just, and righteous acting with all wisdom.
I will show you this so that you can teach them of My ways. Show them what this way of operating in any role looks like. It seeks Me and puts Me first. This is why you must operate in My peace, for this is how I flow. My peace does not just feel good for you, it welcomes My presence, My power, My authority. With Me, all things are possible. My word and principles are as applicable and true today as they have been from the beginning. Ask Me and I will show you how to apply My precepts.
