When I was restarting my business, here were the facts:
I had no money in the business account
I had no viable leads in the pipeline
I had no clue where I was going to get my next check
I had no idea how I was going to pay rent at the office
Restarting my business didn’t come easy. I went through many times that tried my faith in myself and in God’s promises.
Many times...I wanted to give up.
We all get to a point where we look at the FACTS, and they are not looking good. In the natural, we think ‘how am I going to get out of this mess’?
Here’s how: FAITH
The facts say one thing, but faith takes our minds off of the facts and onto God’s promises. It turns a negative mindset into a positive outlook.
In Psalms, we read
“God is our mighty fortress, always ready to help in times of trouble. And so, we won’t be afraid!” (Psalms 46.1, 2a).
Confidence in God’s promises for your entrepreneurial life overrides fear. Yes, our business circumstances are very real. But so are the promises of our God.
In the book of Nehemiah, we see a man committed to rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem. This is his calling in life, and he's confident in God's protection during the assignment. He chose to depend on God to give him victory.
Nehemiah 4:15 says
"When our enemies heard that we were aware of their plot and that God had frustrated it, we all returned to the wall, each to our own work."
So even in the midst of danger, Nehemiah and the builders chose not to focus on the circumstances but instead GET BACK TO WORK. And guess what? God intervened and the enemies backed off!
What does this mean for you?
It means...GET BACK TO WORK!
Stop the pity party, stop the depression, stop the anxiety and worry, just stop it. You have one thing to do: REBUILD.
What role does faith play in activating God’s favor in your business?
God wants to see us have faith. He wants to know that he’s the king of our hearts, and for our own good…because he wants us to realize that we’re not alone in our entrepreneurial path. God is with you, he is for you and your success!
Whatever difficulties you are currently facing in your business, turn them over to God, and leave him to determine the results.
