Insider Information

In any business, ministry, or venture one of the most important steps is coming to know what is essential to get the job done. Without knowledge you can head the wrong direction, make the wrong decisions, and end in complete failure. 

Great leadership doesn’t always demand that you know everything but sometimes it means you find the expert in an area and rely on him. It’s a smart man who looks to others for expertise.

The wisest men in the earth are those who admit their lack of knowledge and humbly, fully rely on the only One who is absolutely complete in knowledge. The Apostle Paul knew this and prayed for other believers that they would take this approach as their standard operating procedure. He prayed they would operate in the… 

“…true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. (Colossians 2:2-3)

If you are walking with Christ and knowing Him you will have access to everything you need to know about everything you need to know about. All the treasures. And then, if you are extraordinarily wise and humble you will follow His counsel without hesitation. The man with insider information and complete obedience will find success every single day and in “whatever he does, he prospers.” (Psalms 1)
