A BIGGER VISION DRIVES GOD’S LEADERS
PSALM 67:1-2 (NKJV)
God’s blessings follow leaders who adopt His vision for the nations for the world. Psalm 67 contain both the “top line” and the “bottom line” of the covenant God invites us to enter.
The top line represents God’s blessings for His people; the bottom line represents the natural response to that blessings. When God blesses us, we are to turn around and bless all the unblessed nations of the earth.
The “top line” is that God would bless us, and the “bottom line” is that we would make His name known to all the earth. God blesses His people so that they can bless those who have yet to be blessed. Godly leaders feel driven by this vision. Maintenance is not the goal. Getting blessed is not the goal. World conquest motivates God’s heart, and He accomplishes this mission through leaders who cast vision got participating in bottom-line living.
