Key is surrender!

Be honest with your fears. Ask God from courage for decision disciples had to do this also.
Pray for God’s wisdom.
Use wisdom in addition to leading from His Spirit (Solomon in I Kings 3)

James 1 If anyone lacks wisdom He will give it to us generously
Key question: Lord, what is best for your kingdom?
Weigh what will happen if you stay, versus what will happen if you
leave.
Ask the Holy Spirit to lead.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:
1. How do you make decisions about big issues such as succession/changes? What has worked well?
2. Have you ever witnessed someone trying to make a big decision who is not honest about their fears? What happened?
