I’ve been through my shares of ups and downs in my business. And when the downs come, it seems like everything around me is crashing down. Bills get backed up, confidence is lost, a feeling of failure sets in, and the will to give up starts to creep into your mind.
When we go through these times, it seems like we’re all alone.
But we’re not alone.
In Deuteronomy 8:6-9, Moses writes
“Observe the commands of the Lord your God, walking in obedience to him and revering him. For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills; a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; a land where bread will not be scarce and you will lack nothing; a land where the rocks are iron and you can dig copper out of the hills.”
You might not see it because your mind is clouded with the problems of the business and where the next checks will come in to pay the bills.
You might not have the faith built up yet to immediately turn to prayer when troubled times come.
But we have a God who has made a promise to us entrepreneurs….for the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land.
