I’ve been traded and cut by coaches before, but check out this story about firing myself.
“Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding” Daniel 2:20-21, ESV
I didn’t want to resign and give away our organization…but I was faced with a blitz and knew God was up to something, even though I didn’t know what it would look like. It comes down to trusting Him or trusting myself.
Read chapter 2 in the book of Daniel. Daniel worked for a “secular” boss. The King didn’t believe in or tolerate Daniel’s God. He was about to kill all his wise advisors, including Daniel, because no one could interpret the king’s dream. Daniel heard from God but didn’t know if the king would change his mind or not. That’s when he declared that God can change things in any way He wishes and we should ask for wisdom to handle those changes.
You don’t need the circumstances or outcomes you want. You need God.
Ask yourself this question a few times this week, and every week: “How attached am I to my version of my life… career, circumstances, finances etc?”
Attach yourself more to God and His sovereign plans for your life than to your version of your life. Ask Him for wisdom and knowledge of what to do. Then trust Him and do the new thing He shows you.
Fire yourself. Put God in charge.
