Almost every morning I have a routine. I wake up at sunrise, make a powerful cup of bulletproof coffee (Google that!), sit down in my prayer & meditation chair, open up my bible app (YouVersion), and begin ‘eating’ my daily bread.
Incorporating this time with God into my diet every morning transformed my business and personal life. Where do you think I get the energy and content to write a 40-day study of Nehimiah paralleling restating your business with rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem.
I’ve developed a true HUNGER to want to draw closer to God…selfishly to grow my business stronger. Hey, whatever it takes for God to get your attention, he’ll take it. People go to God for a variety of reasons, mine is business. I feel led and called to do so. I expect that to change over time, but this is currently the season I’m in.
When we see God transforming our lives and businesses, it should motivate us more to draw closer to Him. We see the fruits it produces, and we want more of that sweet stuff. That daily bread is what we need as entrepreneurs to stay on track and continue growing.
In Chapter 8 of Nehimiah, the wall has been built and now the city is growing. The people come to the leaders and literally beg them to teach them from the word of God. So the leaders did just that.
Nehemiah 8:1-3 NIV all the people came together as one in the square before the Water Gate. They told Ezra the teacher of the Law to bring out the Book of the Law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded for Israel. So on the first day of the seventh month Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, which was made up of men and women and all who were able to understand. He read it aloud from daybreak till noon as he faced the square before the Water Gate in the presence of the men, women and others who could understand. And all the people listened attentively to the Book of the Law.
Your business is now built and now God wants to continue to grow it. He wants to speak to you every morning, direct your steps. He wants you to come up him with problems, conversations of concern, and continued praises as God paves the way before you.
We Godpreneurs need our daily bread to lead our teams to new heights.
