I get distracted easily. Sometimes I’m so distracted that I’m so far off the thing is supposed to be doing that the business starts to suffer for it.
But when I realize I’ve gone off the rail and I get back on track, things seem to start running smoothly again. Sigh of relief!
This is similar to our walk with God.
We get distracted by things that seem like they’ll make us money, deals that are too good to be true, partnerships that we think will suit us well, but deep down we know it's either against God’s Word or not in the vision He’s given us. Believe it or not, going against God is a sin.
However, if we’re aware of it, confess and turn our businesses back towards God, He will be faithful to the vision and promises He has given.
After Nehemiah decides to pray and confess, he reminds God of the promise He made to his ancestors. Nehemiah 1:8-9 says:
“Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, but if you return to me and obey my commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name."
Are you relying on any of God’s promises to motivate you?
When God promises, it's for real. Not like “Honey, I promise to take out the trash,” and then you forget. No. God’s promises are true. Every single one of them.
What has God promised you for your business?
What does the bible say about His promises for you to prosper?
