Many of you have prayed to Me for positions of authority and power. I tell you now, those of you who desire to be exalted thus, serve. If you wish your name to be great, serve. If you wish to be known, serve.
A master is not greater than His servants and I showed you this when I walked on the earth, yet you wish to be exalted that you may not serve. If you wish to be exalted to authority, you must understand how to be under such authority, that you may know both sides.
In serving, you will gain understanding, as I will grant you great revelation that you may indeed be fit to govern.
If you do not wish to serve, do not ask Me that you may rule.
11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
1 Peter 4:10
10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.
