I’ve been launching people’s businesses since I started my branding agency in 2005. The one thing I can guarantee you is that 100% of the entrepreneurs that didn’t launch their idea, didn’t start making money.

The same is true for my own ideas and ambitions. I’ve dreamed up thousands of marketing plans and niche brands, but if I didn’t go out and plant some seeds by taking action, no fruit was going to come from the idea.

Are you stuck in the idea phase? Are you paralyzed by indecision? Are you tired of your financial situation not changing?

So many of us entrepreneurs get stuck. We let the enemy think we’re not worthy, we don’t have the funds, we’re too busy, we’ll fail…and the list of tactics go on and on. But know that the enemy is simply trying to keep us from what God is calling us to do – go plant seeds.

When a farmer needs to make money, he doesn’t look out at his empty field and think about planting seeds. He doesn’t sit there and pray about it, call 10 friends to talk about it, or sit around and wait for a miracle crop to grow. No. He goes out and plants the seeds. He takes ACTION.

Jesus says this:

Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. (John 12:24 NIV)

Some of you entrepreneurs are in the financial situation you’re in because you’re waiting for a miracle, a big easy break, or a sign from God. But God isn’t the creator of the “get rich quick” mindset. God has taught us all about planting seeds, doing the small things, showing our commitment in the little things.

If you want more money to manage, you must get out there and take action, no matter how small it is. Be in action.

You’re waiting on God… but God is actually waiting for you.

For some of us Godpreneurs, we need to plant financial seeds so we can receive more. We need to begin tithing and honoring God with our first fruits.

Some of us need to start helping others understand how to manage their money better so we can begin to see more wisdom in our own financial management skills.

See, the way it works is that whatever we are wanting in our lives, we must first go out and plant a seed in that area. That’s how God designed it. Why? Because this is an act of faith, and God blesses the faithfully obedient. God says to the farmer “Plant that seed, and I’ll make it grow.” This brings glory to God!

Imagine if this made sense to all Godpreneurs. Imagine a world of faithful seed planters. How much more would our finances be blessed if we took action in our businesses for God to produce more fruit!

Godpreneur Money Rule #9 – When Godpreneurs have a need, we don’t worry about it, and we don’t wait for a miracle — we take action by plant seeds.
