When I read in the Bible about the "uncertain" times the people of God went through - every famine, every economic downtown, every plague, every disease - God sustained what they went through because they put their trust in him.
When your trust is in the Lord, you and your business are secure.
It's easy to trust God when everything is good, the client list is growing, employees are happy, and all is going according to plan in our business. Friends at church ask us, "how's business," and we jubilantly reply, "God is good, I’m just trusting the Lord, everything is amazing!"
However, it's a whole different ballgame to trust God when things are not so good in our businesses.
You see, to trust God along your entrepreneurial journey means you have to allow Him to do what He wants to do, even if He fails. But wait, God fails? That's the point - He’s God, and he doesn't fail.
We must trust God enough to let Him succeed - on HIS terms and way. HIS time, not in my terms, way, or timing.
To trust God in entrepreneurship is to say, “I´m going to let you do what you want to do through my business, Lord. I’m not going to argue with you, I’m not going to complain, I’m not going to resist your calling, I’m going to let you do what you know is best, and I’m not going to fear the outcome."
We've heard Psalm 23 a hundred times, but we mostly associate it with a funeral. I want you to think about it now, as I read it, from your business struggles perspective.
