While they have done everything they possibly could to tear you down, lie on you and tarnish your good name, the best thing you can do is to quietly sit back and watch as their malicious deeds drag them further down while God elevates you right in front of them. And all they’ve lied to will finally see whose side God was really on.
Real leaders are “independent thinkers”. They often resist the “norm” and very rarely follow the crowd. These people are often misunderstood and sometimes rejected. Yet, they go on to make the biggest impact because they were determined to tread upon the very places where others were afraid to go. Anyone can hold a position, but not everyone is a leader.
