TOPIC — Effective Delegation: A Leadership Secret (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 2 November 2022)


BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joel 2:18-32, Joel 3, Hebrews 4:1-13, Psalm 119:145-152


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Exodus 18:1-27 (KJV)


1 When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses’ father in law, heard of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, and that the Lord had brought Israel out of Egypt;


2 Then Jethro, Moses’ father in law, took Zipporah, Moses’ wife, after he had sent her back,


3 And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:


4 And the name of the other was Eliezer; for the God of my father, said he, was mine help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh:


5 And Jethro, Moses’ father in law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount of God:


6 And he said unto Moses, I thy father in law Jethro am come unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her.


7 And Moses went out to meet his father in law, and did obeisance, and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent.


8 And Moses told his father in law all that the Lord had done unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel’s sake, and all the travail that had come upon them by the way, and how the Lord delivered them.


9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the Lord had done to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians.


10 And Jethro said, Blessed be the Lord, who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh, who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.


11 Now I know that the Lord is greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.


12 And Jethro, Moses’ father in law, took a burnt offering and sacrifices for God: and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to eat bread with Moses’ father in law before God.


13 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the evening.


14 And when Moses’ father in law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? why sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people stand by thee from morning unto even?


15 And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people come unto me to enquire of God:


16 When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of God, and his laws.


17 And Moses’ father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good.


18 Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.


19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God:


20 And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.


21 Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:


22 And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee.


23 If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace.


24 So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did all that he had said.


25 And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.


26 And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.


27 And Moses let his father in law depart; and he went his way into his own land.


MEMORY VERSE: “18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” – Matthew 16:18-19


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES:
Delegation makes work easier and helps all team members fulfil their ministries.


PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
BEGINNING FROM TODAY, YOU WILL REAP THE GREAT REWARD OF YOUR EFFORTS AND LABOUR OF LOVE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:


Yesterday, we rounded off with the counsel that, as a leader, you should not engage in doing all the work by yourself, stating that you would find it exhausting, counter-productive and unsustainable. Let us now examine the five delegation principles that Jethro introduced to Moses, which you should also learn and apply.

First, you should admit that working non-stop is unsustainable. Jethro told Moses candidly. “The thing that thou doest is not good. Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee: thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.” It is important in leadership to admit when your strategy is not working and make a positive change. I give credit to Moses on this. When you overwork yourself and don’t delegate, you will end up impairing your health, sanity, family, career and ministry. Worse still, you will wear out the people too. So you need to change the strategy.


Second, you should understand your unique calling. God gave Jethro the wisdom to identify that Moses had a unique calling where he alone added significant value. He also knew that Moses would fulfil that calling better than he was doing by delegating some tasks to others. He advised Moses, “Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God. And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.” Moses needed to offload those things that others could do, so he could focus on those things that only he could do. The same is true for you. Identify the area where you add value-something that you are uniquely called and qualified to do? How can you delegate the rest?


Leaders who do not delegate often lack work-life balance. They develop high blood pressure and other health problems. Many have also died untimely of cardiac arrest and stress-related causes. However, when you delegate you will be able to focus on the mission and bring all available resources-most especially the gifts of other people to bear on achieving the mission. By so doing you gain and they also gain.


PRAYER POINTS:


MORNING

  1. Father, help me to identify my unique calling and focus on it, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Father, help me to recognise the strengths of others and delegate tasks to them appropriately, in the name of Jesus.
  3. O God, make me a motivator for other members of my team, in the name of Jesus.


EVENING

  1. Any leadership style that is assigned to wear me out or impair my health, I reject you now, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Father, make me a leader that raises other leaders, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Father, make me a supportive and responsible team member, in the name of Jesus.
  4. I receive the grace to enjoy work-life balance, in the name of Jesus.
