Are you feeling discouraged that business isn’t going the way you wanted? Has your business turned into BUSYness, and you’re overwhelmed?
You’ve assembled your team, you have a plan, but the enemy keeps attacking from different angles. He’s got your team discouraged, and the once excitement in Restarting the business has now turned to them being afraid.
If this continues like this, the business will likely fail and everyone is looking for a new job.
But that’s not the plan God has for you. God has plans for you to prosper and grow!
In the Bible, the book of Nehemiah gives us entrepreneurs an amazing example of how to lead through a rebuilding project. At the beginning of the project, there is encouragement, excitement, team building, and overall great spirits for what God was doing.
However, in Nehemiah 4, we see discouragement settle into what was once an exciting revitalization of the rebuilding of the wall.
Nehemiah 4:10-11 says
"Meanwhile, the people in Judah said, “The strength of the laborers is giving out, and there is so much rubble that we cannot rebuild the wall.” Also our enemies said, “Before they know it or see us, we will be right there among them and will kill them and put an end to the work.”
Nehemiah's project is being threatened by exhaustion, discouragement, and an overwhelming feeling that this is "project impossible." And to make matters worst, fear has crept into their minds.
You’re not alone in your struggle.
This is every entrepreneur's rollercoaster ride when rebuilding, and relaunching a business. You’re always in one of 3 places:
in the middle of a trial,
coming out of one,
or going into one.
Right now you’re in the thick of it. Successfully Restarting a business - God's Way - means you'll be honoring God more in the marketplace, and that’s not something the enemy will allow easily.
We need to hold on to God's promises.
We need to not give in and not give up.
We need to pray up and press on!
Victory is ours because God said so!
