Innovation is the capacity to think beyond the known, defy the norm, and believe in one’s ability to solve problems. I remain positive because I am convinced that no problem is unsolvable. You do not have to throw in the towel, commit suicide, or quit because every problem has a solution. No matter what happens in this current economic crisis,you can solve it.

There are ways to rise above crisis. You have to think innovatively. What you need is on the inside of you. You have to initiate solutions. Do not wait for things to happen to you. Take control, and decide what happens. You have to place demands on your potential. Your answers may be found in a talent or ability that you least expect could be used. There is a way to rise above.

In order to rise above crisis, you have to believe in your ability to solve problems. Look at what you have. Study your environment, your experience, and your relationships. You never know who has the rest of your puzzle. As it pertains to visionary leadership, you always have a piece of the vision for your life, and there are other people around you and in the world that have the rest of what you need.

Additionally, you also have to see the potential of resources. Understand the true nature of resources. Study your resources. Then act. You have to have the attitude of a Kingdom innovator. You must believe that nothing is impossible. You must also believe that there is no one way to solve a problem. For example, you may have been taught that there are only two ways to cross water—by boat or swim. However, God told Moses, “No. I will open the water, and you walk on dry land” (Ex 14:16). Also, Jesus demonstrated another way to cross water; He walked on it (Matt 14:25).

In these critical times, you need to find new ways to solve old problems. For example, Jesus performed miracles, using diverse methods. He healed several blind men but all in different ways. He touched two, put mud on the eyes of another, and just spoke to another (Matt 9:29; Jn 9:6; Lk 18:42). Therefore, though you may be in a financial crisis, there is more than one way to earn money. Do not think that you have to get a job in order to earn a salary. God may be saying, “I am not going to remove this crisis until you think differently.”

Finally, never surrender to limitations. Crisis is the time to break barriers. Do not be afraid to fail. You will never succeed greatly until you are willing to fail greatly. This factor is a benefit of crisis. It pushes you in ways that you have never been before. Be willing to try anything at least once. It is better to have tried and failed than to not have tried and never know you could have succeeded.
