In Need of a Wingman?
In flying, a pilot who supports another in a potentially dangerous flying environment is called a wingman. God is my wingman. And lately, I have found myself depending on his support and guidance more and more. Now, it is well known that I’m a praying man. I pray over meals, even at restaurants, at night with my children and with my wife, and at the beginning of all my real estate and private money seminars. But more and more, I have found that God’s counsel and presence are necessary for all that I do. I have begun to add prayer to the end of our weekly staff meetings, I’ve prayed with some of my employees on the phone, and I find that I’m praying in the solitude of my office with more and more frequency.
It’s not that I didn’t believe in the power of prayer before. From first-hand knowledge, I know it works. Still, like too many entrepreneurs and business owners before and after me, I tend to look everywhere else for the answer— in my leadership, my employees, the marketplace, or the trends in the industry and then, when all else fails, I turn to my wingman, God. In this, like most entrepreneurs, I get it all wrong.
So now, I’m working on turning to my wingman first to help me navigate my leadership, my employees, the marketplace, and the industry trends. It’s only when I have done this wholly and with purpose do I feel that I’m finally flying straight. And this is why I’m praying more. I’m going to the only one source who can keep me and my vision steady and make sure my business decisions are according to God’s perfect and goodwill.
So, who is your wingman? Who is keeping you steady? I invite you to learn how to consult with God in all aspects of your life, including your business.
I DESIRE TO DO YOUR WILL, MY GOD; YOUR LAW IS WITHIN MY HEART.
