I’ve learned an amazing skill that I want to share with you today.
There are times in our entrepreneurial life where the problems and attacks are going to come from many directions.
For example, not only do you have problems in the business, but also problems at home. It’s not just the lack of funds to pay your contractors, but it’s the lack of love and support from your spouse.
Can I encourage you? God is setting you up for amazing things when the attacks get heavier.
I’m reading Acts 23 and here is Paul, the most decorated and stories apostle, he likely sits right next to Jesus in heaven because this man is a LEGEND! You would think that he lived an amazing life if he’s such a man of God. Nope. Instead, second to Jesus, he pretty much suffered the same exact treatment and persecution, even eventually got killed for his faith.
What I love about Paul is his faith, always looking beyond the reality of his current situation, and staying focused on the real-life that was in him, a life that became more alive the more he was persecuted.
Paul knew that he need not be anxious about anything, because God, the Almighty, gave him life and no man could snatch it from him apart from God’s will.
Do we Godpreneurs have this same confidence? Do we fret and fear in the face of the ups and downs of our business and personal lives? Do we trust our own strength and resolve to make our way in the world.
Remember, it is God who gives us our identity, our joy, our happiness, and our freedom. No power, human or spiritual, can snatch us from His care.
Though we Godpreneurs may be afflicted, perplexed, and persecuted, we can yet walk in hope, joy, and confidence, knowing that we are accomplishing the job that God has set out for us to do.
Godpreneur Rule #34: Godpreneurs see conflict and persecution as a sign that we’re doing the right thing.
