It used to be a drag for me to get up early in the morning to read the Bible. I knew as a “good Christian” I was supposed to, but I didn’t have the burning thirst for it like I knew others had.
Then, one day, I was reading (out of obligation) and God used a lesson of the Bible to help me through something I was going through in my business. I thought, “well thanks to God, that was helpful.”
The next day it happened again. And then the following day again. On the 4th day, I was given the revelation – I needed to teach the entire Bible to entrepreneurs as the best business book on the planet.
God’s hand has been on me because I was preparing my heart to search the Bible to help others. That’s the secret sauce to the success of Daily Godpreneur.
As Christian business bloggers, we are being set aside to bring God-inspired revelations to our target market of Godpreneurs. If we’re going to step into this calling fully, we need to make sure our mindset is right and that we’re preparing our hearts to consume anything we can relate to our topic, and bring that teaching to the world.
In other words, we don’t just write and study the Word to have a quick word for our readers. No, instead of that, we are committed to communicating for change and turning our readers to God and growing their business by grounding them in the faith by using the Word.
This is when we know our writing is blessed!
The Bible says:
… Ezra came up from Babylon. He was a teacher well versed in the Law of Moses, which the Lord , the God of Israel, had given. The king had granted him everything he asked, for the hand of the Lord his God was on him. (Ezra 7:6 NIV)
Ezra was well versed in God’s Word and committed to teaching that which God revealed to him through the Word.
In your writing, you should also be so devoted to getting up in the morning and receiving the Word so you can go onto your blog and teach it.
You should be fully ready and anticipating that God’s going to give you a great topic to write about. Who knows, that topic might become the next New York Times bestseller.
All you need to do is make sure you’re committed to receiving God’s word daily.
That’s a big reason why I urge all of my readers to subscribe to my daily email (www.dailygodpreneur.com/subscribe). Make sure you’re reading it, it will give you ideas for topics to write about. Don’t worry about re-teaching what I write; you have full permission. It’s not my writing anyway; it’s God’s.
When our hearts and minds are open, like it happened for me, we’ll find it a lot easier to wake up and be studying the Word. We’ll be excited to see what God has for us next!
We can pretty much guarantee an endless flow of blog posts if we commit to being diligent readers of the Word. Our writings will be a natural outpouring of our studies.
Since we will be teaching so naturally, God’s character will shine through to the reader; therefore, God will be the one doing the word to change hearts, that’s not our responsibility. The weight of that burden should never be on our shoulders if we’re following this principle authentically.
Christian business bloggers resolve to be a guide to Godpreneurs for Christ every day.
