We cannot be leaders without first learning how to come under authority. Let’s take a look at these examples in the Bible.
Now Korah… rose up [in rebellion] before Moses. And when Moses heard this, he fell face downward; and he spoke to Korah and all his company, saying, “In the morning the Lord will show who belongs to Him, and who is holy, and will bring him near to Himself; the one whom He will choose He will bring near to Himself. (From Numbers 16, 1-5, AMP)
Let’s just say it didn’t go well for Korah and his gang.
Then there is the Amalek tribe, the descendants of Esau, who rebelled against God.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this in the book as a memorial and recite it to Joshua that I will utterly wipe out the memory of Amalek [and his people] from under heaven.” (Exodus 17:14, AMP)
And let us not forget King Saul.
“For rebellion is as [serious as] the sin of divination (fortune-telling), And disobedience is as [serious as] false religion and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you as king.” (1 Samuel 15:23, AMP)
We dare not rebel against God.
Prayer – Examine us Lord. Search us and know our hearts: try us, and know our thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in us, and lead us in the way everlasting. Amen (From Psalm 139:24, KJV)
