God’s Faithfulness While Building Your Family Empire
A 3-Day Devotional For Married Entrepreneurs
Laser Clear Vision In Marriage
I used to cringe when I heard Believers use the phrase Family Empire. We’ve seen far too many times fellow brothers and sisters in Christ twist the essence and meaning of Empire for personal gain to the exclusion of God.
You see, I thought that building a family empire meant you couldn’t build God’s Kingdom…at least not at the same time or in the same way.
But the TRUE purpose of a Family Empire is to build God’s Kingdom.
Here’s how Webster defines ‘empire.’
Empire: a large commercial organization owned or controlled by one person or group.
Historically, all ‘empires’ are known for something.
Likewise, families are known for something.
A family empire includes ventures that position it to leave a powerful legacy in the earth.
1 Cor 10:31 1 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (NASB)
So, if you’ve been called to entrepreneurship, you’ve been called to do it to the Glory of God.
It’s easy for us as entrepreneurs (or as Believers for that matter) to assume we’re bringing glory to God. As we all know, it’s rarely ever good to assume. This is why as married entrepreneurs, a morning prayer together over our business and your marriage helps aim hearts, creativity, thoughts and resources to ultimately bring Him glory.
Tomorrow, we will share a key component to receiving God’s supernatural peace and provision during our season of transition into full-time entrepreneurship as my husband got fired from his 9-5. More on that soon.
In the meantime, here’s a simple prayer to pray with your spouse today:
Lord, we acknowledge you as our King and Source. Thank you for our marriage (covenant). Thank you for what you’ve called us to do on the earth with our business. Show us how to build your Kingdom through our mandate. Help us model your Kingdom to our partners, clients and all who we interact with. Be glorified.
