[undefined]Leaders are Decision Makers
Dr. Kluane Spake
Can you say this out loud with me? “Most of my life is the direct result of my decisions.”
The Bible calls indecisiveness being “double minded and unstable in all your ways” (Jms. 1:8).
Psychiatrists call this condition of internal vacillating war of indecision, “ambivalence,” which is when two feelings about the same objective coexist in one person.
Ambivalence means that you have given away your power of Free Will and choice. You can’t move forward until a decision is made.
Well, you don’t need to be a psychiatrist or even go to a fortune teller, to realize that you could often be ambivalent.
We see that Jesus was always decisive. He knew the purpose of His life. He “steadfastly set his face toward Jerusalem” (Lk. 9:51).
That means He didn’t look to the left or right for other options because the time had come to set his face to fulfill his mission: which was to die in Jerusalem for our sake.
Luke continues to say, “He sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of the Samaritans to make ready for him; but the people would not receive him because his face was set toward Jerusalem.”
But, rejection didn’t matter because He knew the decision had to be carried out!
A decision should be resolute. Determined. Stable. Unwavering. Steadfast. Steady.
Leaders are decision makers. They walk out their passions.
Be decisive! Don’t bother complaining.
