I’ve been doing logos and websites since 2005. Contrary to what you might think, the best part of my job isn’t the creation of the actual work. My favorite part is the planning whereby I get to sit with the entrepreneur, download their thoughts and help guide them to discovering the story behind their brand and a strategy that will WIN in the marketplace.
(this is not a plug for my services, I’m getting somewhere with this…hang tight)
During that time with the entrepreneur, something extraordinary happens. I get inspired by the Holy Spirit to interpret their vision and lay out their “born to do” plan on business. See, I feel that everyone is born, for one thing, they just don’t know it yet, and God has chosen me (and others) to help people find their life and business purpose.
What I want to highlight here isn’t my service, but the fact that I was inspired at the right time to help someone through something. It was inspiration given to me in the middle of a 30-60 minute conversation. Not 15 minutes before, not 15 minutes after. Right on time during our session.
We all have the ability to be inspired right on time. Jesus has saved us and the Holy Spirit dwells in us, so we have the wisdom of God implanted in our minds, and we can call on that wisdom when we need it.
There are times in our businesses when we need to believe in this and take advantage of this power. We need timely wisdom in a business situation to come up with inspired solutions.
Maybe you’re going through a waiting season, and it seems like God is distant. The holy spirit wants to reveal to you why you’re in the season and what you need to do while you’re there.
Maybe you’re stuck, and there’s a big business decision. You think that God won’t show up on time for you this time because the time is up, the ship sailed, and you can’t regain that time.
What I’ve learned in business, not just in my strategy sessions with clients, but even in my darkest, loneliest times is that God is the one who has the plan for my life and He always fulfills his purpose and plan for my business, and will continue to on His timing.
The Bible says:
"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." (James 1:5 NIV)
The Bible is full of accounts where wisdom came in the nick of time. Solomon knew how to handle the two mothers fighting over a baby, not because he’s seen that case 100 times, but because divine wisdom was in him.
Daniel interpreted the king’s dream because God gave him that wisdom on the spot. He had no other way of knowing what the dream was about, and it saved him and his friend’s lives.
The examples keep going. The point for you as an entrepreneur is that you have to trust that wisdom will come to you on the spot, and you have to expect it. That’s the faith we Godpreneurs need to carry around.
To take advantage of this wisdom, we must stand firm and know that no matter what we face in our businesses, God promises wisdom and it will activate at precisely the right time in full effect!
Believe James 1:5 and stop, maybe even fast for the day, and seek God’s wisdom and He’ll reveal the answer.
When we ask our Dad for wisdom in business situations, He promises in His word to give it to us without finding fault. Our Father’s inspiration through the Holy Spirit will kick in right on time in every business situation, even when we naturally think we aren’t going to know the answer.
We Godpreneurs should all be encouraged to know God is right there whispering in our ears the answers to the most profound things that trouble us, and He wants to reveal that today!
