Leaders, Pastors, Ministers, Evangelist, Teachers, Managers, and all people who hold a position of power at some point need encouragement themselves! Any position where you have to lead can empower but can also drain you. Consider Moses who was overwhelmed in the beginning months of his journey with the Israelites sought help from the Lord. He couldn’t handle the thousands of people needs by himself. So the Lord assigned him leaders within the tribes to assist him. He still was overwhelmed with help and eventually his role was given to Joshua. Joshua is the amazing young soul that asked God to make the sun stand still (Joshua 10). Yet in still with amazing faith he too needed encouraging. The bible says, “But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.” Deuteronomy 1:38. People with great big vision and assignments have great responsibility to make sure it comes to pass. They need our prayers & support. They need our kind words and encouragement. These leaders are the same ones that encourage us when we are down.
