"He who was seated on the throne said, 'I am making everything new!' Then he said, 'Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true'" - Revelation 21:5.
If God is making everything new, it means He is in the change business, transforming all things from how they were to how they are going to be. Therefore, change is not something to be tolerated or engaged when there is a crisis, but rather change must be seen as a business and life strategy. Technology progresses, people come and go, one market opens and another closes down, a calamity affects world markets, and princes and politicians assume power and are deposed. Wise and effective leaders understand that they deal in change and help their organizations and the people in them to adjust to and prepare for the reality of change.
LEADERSHIP STEP: Your Step today is to examine your own attitude toward change to see if you consider it an inconvenience or a God-ordained way of life. Do you talk about the good old days or have you kept up with the latest trends in technology and social media? Do you decide regularly to preserve the status quo or do you lead change initiatives to improve and modernize your operations and business strategies? Are you resisting inevitable changes in any area? Do you understand that the decision to do nothing is in and of itself a decision with implications?
