In order to adjust and restructure, consider these steps:
1. Renovate your heart.
What defines you? How can you allow God to reshape your identity so that it isn’t vulnerable when the things around you go down? What do you have that is priceless and what are you doing to protect it? Train your heart to abase as well as abound. Learn from leaders like Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Jim Collins who have prepared internally to be used in alignment with their calling in times of dramatic change or crisis.
2. Build core stability.
Get clear on your mission, strengths, passions, and character values. Invest in daily disciplines of listening to the Lord (morning devotionals, silent retreats, personal board of directors, etc.).
3. Keep your center of gravity low.
Be adaptable. Have a strong core but a flexible context. Have a firm mission but adapt how you live that mission out. What baggage are you carrying right now that you could let go of? Simplify. Get rid of debt. How could lifestyle changes make you more available in times of crisis?
4. Invest in a platform in order to have impact.
How will you hone your message and skills to serve the people you are called to serve? How will you build a tribe of people around you?
“It feels like we’re riding a roller coaster with high-speed ups and downs in real time. The key is flowing with the Spirit of God and defending against the powers of darkness. No easy task.“
While we may not see the 100X yield in this life, we will see it in eternity. We can learn from the example Jesus set by making eye contact with the Father. Jesus had a specific mission and a strategy, but still woke up to seek direction from the Father and responded spontaneously to surrounding needs. We too can live in the tension between a clear purpose and strategy for execution combined with daily dependence on the Father.
