Recently I’ve made a tremendous amount of changes in my business that significantly reduced the amount of income the agency was generating, thus resulting in the need to cut expenses.
This required giving up some of our luxuries in order to maintain our necessities.
When we do that, we will have to separate those things that have a high price from those that have great value to the business.
It also forces us to reexamine the vision. It will also require a lot of trust in God’s vision for our businesses.
Hardship can be good for us, if we use it as an opportunity to examine our businesses for excess and rid ourselves of the unnecessary. Forced awareness is better than no awareness at all.
In 1 Timothy 6:9, the bible says:
“Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.”
Times of hardship can be God reprogramming our desires and helping us get rid of those harmful desires.
Hardship also gives us, business owners, a chance to talk to our team about where we place our trust….in the One who will always provide everything we need.
The bible says:
“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Peter 1:3).
You can use hard times to show your accountant, partners, team members and even your clients and vendors the fact that God has your back.
Now….what is God telling us through these times?
His vision is bigger.
I personally believe that He’s making a way for bigger and better things in our businesses. What do you think?
