There will be seasons in your life when the greatest evidence you are a leader is discovered when you turn around and realize no one is following, yet you keep moving forward toward a promise. These are seasons where some of your greatest tests will come because the layers of relational insulation are removed and you come face-to-face with the depth of your relationship with God apart from other people and the constant noise and demands of community.
Just as Jesus ultimately went to the Cross alone, some of you will be asked to enter the next leg of your journey alone with God in preparation for a future of resurrection life. This season will not last forever, but it is necessary. These times are designed by God for you go deeper so you can go farther.
