Do you depend on God when facing daily pressures in your business?
Some of the leaders that I respect the most have tied their entire leadership philosophy to Proverbs 3:5-6.
Seldom do we find a truth stated this simply. The leaders I know that have adopted this as their leadership/life philosophy appear to be less stressed and even peaceful in difficult times and genuinely humble when times are good and their leadership is flourishing. Their simple dependence on God takes the worry out of deadlines, financial pressures, market instability, health issues, and major decisions. Their belief that God will direct their path seems to keep them ever hopeful when everyone else is losing hope.
When a leader has determined to trust in the Lord with all their heart that means they have dealt with the issue of God being trustworthy. They have wrestled to the ground the issue of who God is and who they are. This may sound simple but it also means dealing with our own ego, self-centeredness, and needs for recognition. It is easy to say “how could anyone who clearly understands reality think they can make a better decision than God” but the Bible is full of examples of leaders who thought just that; even leaders that God used to accomplish His purposes.
Christian leaders who want to impact their team with their value system must lead in a way that allows their team to see their faith in God. That will mean depending on God in the face of daily pressures.
A good verse to memorize is:
Nahum 1:7,The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust Him
