Are you secure enough to admit when you are wrong? (124-4)
When God confronted Job with His power and majesty, Job responded with humility, did not defend himself and did not rationalize his feelings. He confessed his wrong thinking, went silent and waited for God to finish His lesson.
It is interesting that even after Job acknowledges his insignificance and presumption, God delivered a second speech where He graphically described His power and control over everything. This time Job responded with humility and deep repentance and his response set him free.
Godly leaders feel secure enough in their relationship with God that they are able to admit when they are wrong. They don’t have to project their self-worth, defend their every move, or make excuses for their failure. In the end it is God who rebukes and rewards and wise Christian leaders find their confidence in that fact.
