He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed.
So he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm,
and his justice sustained him. - Isaiah 59:16 (NLT)
God realized that no one else would solve the problem, so He did.
Leadership has less to do with ability and more to do with availability - being available to step up and assume a role that is narrower than your grace level or responsibility at a particular time. This is exactly what Jesus did when He left all to come to earth, take on human flesh, live a sinless life, die on the cross and arose from the grave with all authority in his hands. He chose to do it, because it is what was needed.
I have been leading worship at our church for sometime now. There are people in our church not leading worship who are more gifted in singing and in the mechanics of worship leading. At this time, there is a vacuum and it must be filled. So, I will keep at it as long as God gives me grace and the vacuum exists. It's not always easy, but it is what is necessary. It's leadership.
Friends, you have some things to do and conquer as a leader. Are you available? Leaders shouldn't say its the other person's job when no ones else is available or steps up.
The godly leader, the servant leader, acts like Jesus - when it needs to be done, if no one steps up, he makes it happen, while working to replace himself.
