If you call yourself a:
Kingdom-minded business owner
A God-first brand
And you walk hand-in-hand with God, following His purpose for you, you have no reason to be anxious for anything…for an extended period of time.
The reason you make God your CEO, the reason we metaphorically "walk" with God and the reason Jesus died for us on the cross has to do with a transferring of our worries, stress, sins, concerns, and anxiety over to God so we can think clearly and remain in our zone of genius to keep pushing our companies forward.
The Bible says:
do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4:6)
The key to overcoming anxiety in business is simply to not let yourself be caught in a state of PERPETUAL anxiety. You can't remove anxiety, but you can TRANSFER the anxiety to Him so you don't have to carry it. When we do this, the apostle Paul continues with "And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. " (Philippians 4:7)
Jesus takes our anxiety so we can be free to move about the marketplaces doing what we were born to do.
Godpreneurs, it’s impossible to lead a life free of anxiety, but we can discover a life that is void of perpetual anxiety.
#GodpreneurRule: Anxiety comes with business, but doesn't have to dominate us in our businesses.
