Decision Making as a Leader

You are in charge – so you make the decision.  Don’t worry who you upset or offend, do what is right.  It’s your vision, your pure, whole, beautiful vision.  Don’t let them make it a patchwork of their half-baked ideas they have never worked out for themselves.  

Do what you know to be right.  Make a decision with all the information you have to hand, and don’t worry about what you don’t know.  Ask God for wisdom.  He supplies generously without reproach.  Let the peace of God rule in your heart.

Don’t confer with people who have never been where you have.  Don’t let them put Saul’s armour on you to fight the battle you know you are called to fight (if Saul’s armour was that good, Saul would be wearing it).  Don’t let them push you around.

Do what you did when the problem was tiny.  It’s the same solution.

Trust God.  Trust yourself.  Trust your gut.  Trust that He will never let you down.  Trust your experience, God has let you end up at this point for a reason.  Trust who you are in Him.

Seek advice from wiser people, those who have been where you want to go.  Read Ephesians cover to cover.  Fast a day or two.  Open your mind to a new idea.  Read a book by a leader.  Flip a coin (doesn’t matter what the coin is – but when it was in the air, what did you WANT IT TO BE?)

Don’t be afraid of getting it wrong.  It will not be your only chance to do this.

Believe big.  Make a big decision.  Expect great results.
