Great Leadership *2 Sam. 8:14-15

2 Samuel 8:14-15;NIV
God places leaders over people groups. Doing God’s will brings blessings. King David loved God and tried to follow His Word. As a result, God blessed David; as Scripture says: “The Lord gave David victory wherever he went.” Wow!” How would you like to have victory in every single area of your life? How awesome is that!
This is what the Bible says about King David: he was “doing what was just and right for all his people.” Not just for his friends, or the people he liked, or even just for his relatives – no, the Bible states David was concerned for every single life that was under his leadership, which was all of Israel.
Lord, God of Israel, may we be like David in that we, too, will be doing what is right and just in your sight for all the people that we come in contact with and have authority or influence over.
We lift up our leaders and ask that you would draw them to You, that they would adhere to the truth of Your Word, that they would be good leaders and care for the people that they govern over; that they would be fair and just when making decisions or laws.
May all that they do and say, may all that we do and say find favor before You, O Lord, our Rock and Redeemer. Thanks be alone to God Most High!
