As a leader, you may want a quick resolution to a difficult situation.
Perhaps you’ve identified what you think would be the perfect solution.
Your solution may not be what God has in mind at this time.
When was the last time you waited patiently on the Lord?

If you have a visible role which you will soon pass to another, make a transition plan. There are things you can do to help others accept the new leader and to set the new leader up for success.
See the example of David’s transition plan for Solomon.

Adonijah, David’s second son, proclaimed himself king; however, he was not God’s choice (1Kgs 1-2).
Then he said, “You know that the kingdom was mine, and all Israel had set their expectations on me, that I should reign. However, the kingdom has been turned over, and has become my brother’s; for it was his from the Lord.”
We need to let God pick the leader(s) even if they aren’t the most obvious choices to us.
