We must never forget that the greatest model for leadership always comes from the life of God Himself. Isaiah 40 makes it clear that God, as the Ultimate Leader, models:
Comfort and Security – God supplies comfort and cleansing to His people (vv. 1, 2).
Empowerment and Delegation – God makes the path straight for others, then has them speak His words (vv. 3–8).
Shepherding and Direction – God proclaims good news and guides His people like a Shepherd (vv. 9–11).
Power and Authority – No one can challenge God’s strength. He is a Leader with unequaled power (vv. 12–17).
Creator and Developer – God is the transcendent Leader who builds and develops others (vv. 21–26).
Wise Counselor and Provider – God is the source for every need we may have (vv. 27–31).
