The C3 Leaders devotion is a peer weekly reflection from business leaders related to their journey with Christ. Each weekly devotion will be written by a different author from among the C3 Leaders community, 52 unique authors to be exact.
As we go through this next year together, we pray that these words and reflections will encourage you in your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Jesus made it clear to his disciples that even though he was going to die, he would not be apart from them. Through his death and resurrection, all Christians died and were resurrected in him so that forever more, as Christ is in the Father, so are we in Christ and Christ in us. The Holy Spirit is that gift of Christ’s presence which he freely gave to us.
Life as a “Spirit-Filled” leader is not easy, it is in fact very hard and trying and even though Christ says that we will face hardship, trials, and persecution, he does not fail to promise that He has overcome the world, and that as long as we remain in him, God’s love will cover our lives. God is the creator of all things, alpha and omega, beginning and end. He is above all things. He is present in each of our lives, always speaking and listening, longing for us to turn to him. He knows each of us best and he knows what is best for us. There are many verses in Scripture that tell us to bring our desires to God (Psalm 37:4), to ask and receive (Matt 7:7), and to seek His face (Jer 29:13).
So I encourage you today to trust in God’s provision (Matt 6:25), whether your day is a little darker or even a little brighter than normal, to remember that God is beside you supporting you and speaking truth to you. You are loved and remembered by Him. You are powerful and capable. All things are possible with God. He cares for you, he wishes you well.
Be a world changer! Don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd. Let your faith become a guide for your actions. Ask God questions and seek Him in prayer. He will answer.
