PHASE 5: CONVERGENCE
The last phase that all leaders-in-the-making hope to experience I call convergence. This is the phase where everything from your past (good and bad), your gift-mix and the passions that God has placed within you all come together and you realize, “I’m in the right place, at the right time, doing the right work”. A leader knows they are entering this phase when there is a growing awareness that they are doing “the good work God prepared in advance for them to do.” I recently had a CCC leader remark “If ever there were a time I was 100% sure of being right where God wants me, now is it.” That sounds like a leader who is experiencing convergence.
How about you? The Bible promises us, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Are you allowing God to accomplish the good work He prepared for you to do? Do you believe God can use your past to set a sovereign foundation for your future? Have you had that spiritual awakening that when God birthed you He birthed you with a dream? Are you willing to take that risk to expand your influence? Are you acknowledging the affirmation from others or the results of your service? Maybe God is making a leader in you?
