Through what channels does God’s authority to serve come to a new leader?

When a leader starts to serve in a particular responsibility does his authority come from past leaders, other leaders or directly from God?

Can it be acquired some how or must it be given to the leader?

    You must first build favor with those you want to serve. Without favor there is not much authority.

    Authority to lead in any divinely ordained enterprise comes only from the anointing that God pours out upon leaders that He has chosen.

    I think David is a good example. The young lady was was not the one with the outward qualifications, but he WAS the one who was anointed. Nor was he the one with the right family connections, but he WAS the one who was chosen.

    We like to think that a leader serves well because we’re good at picking then, but how vainly, and sadly we are mistaken. Who does God choose? The answer is right in front of us (1 Cor. 1:26-31).
