I went to pitch a client on a pretty big deal. Initially, I wanted to price myself at $10,000. Then my business partner talked me into doubling my price to $20,000. By the time I arrived at the meeting, I told them $40,000. We settled at $30,000.
I went from $10,000 to $30,000. That’s a big chunk.
Why? Not because of greed.
I did it because I wanted to see God show up in the midst of this big proposal I was sharing. I was challenged by my business partner to value myself more. I believe God was talking and teaching through my partner.
Sometimes, we entrepreneurs have so much control and power in our businesses that we don’t allow space for God to show up and work the miracles that only He can do. God is dying (literally) to show up and be present in our entrepreneurial lives.
We business owners have two choices. We can take the easy route, the safe way, and submit to the status quo and coast along the roller coaster ride. We can avoid the twists and turns and gut wrenching falls if we just take this road that is most traveled.
But the Bible says,
"David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished. The divisions of the priests and Levites are ready for all the work on the temple of God, and every willing person skilled in any craft will help you in all the work. The officials and all the people will obey your every command.” 1 Chronicles 28:20-21 NIV
God didn’t call us for small little dreams. He didn’t create Godpreneurs to just get by. Having the word God inside of Entrepreneur means you’ve been called to a much higher standard of risk taking. It’s a risk with faith.
Since God is dying to be present in our lives, He has equipped us to have courage and attack our visions with a sense of faith and resilience that requires His backing.
Godpreneur Rule #25: Godpreneurs go after dreams that are destined to fail without God’s intervention.
