"Delight yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart" - Psalm 37:4.
God grants the desires of the heart, not because He is some cosmic Santa Claus who gives everyone what they want, but because He put those desires there in the first place. So when a leader gets in touch with his or her heart, and seeks to lead God's way, that leader can count on God's help. It is not only the leader, however, who has heart desires; the same is true for followers. So leadership expresses heart desires through vision that provide opportunities for many to express and fulfill their heart's desires together and at the same time.
LEADERSHIP STEP: Are you 'fighting' your heart, seeking only to lead through the 'head' matters of finance, strategy and production? Then it's time to get in touch with your heart along with the hearts of others. Today write down what your elegant dream is, then call together others on your team for lunch one day this week and have them do the same. Then talk about how your dreams can become a reality together. Don't be discouraged if that seems impossible at first.
