Mt 9:4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
Lu 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.
Prophetic leadership is fun to be around. Holy Spirit can show us not only what people are saying and doing, but why they are doing them. Just had a leader flash by in prayer that brought a smile to my face. Purity of heart, and passion and obedience for Jesus is the only way to please us folks..
Works the other way too..God shows us selfish ambition, pride, and the acts of sin people commit, so we can pray, and protect the people we are called to lead.
‘Father, give us true, loving discernment, and discerning of spirits today, that we might see what is in the hearts of those in our lives you have called us to serve. May we be quick to pray, and act in obedience to you to protect your people from false people, ministers, and demons seeking to destroy or defile your people. Give us wisdom on how to correct them, whether in prayer, or through ministry, that they, and Your kingdom may advance. I ask this, knowing I am heard, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen’
