Back in 2008 when I got ‘born again’ into a relationship with God, I knew I was being watched. I realized my friends and family would be looking at me, questioning, and watching my next moves.
Over the years they saw me transform my personal, business, physical and spiritual life. And aside from a few bumps, I think for the most part I’ve been a good testimony of the transforming nature of God in how he renewed me and continues to elevate me.
In rebuilding my business The Creative Complex, many more will be able to see the transformation accomplished by my team – with the help of God. Everyone knows my help comes from above, I talk about it all the time.
My enemies know too. What do I mean by enemies? In this case I use it in a ‘playful’ competitive way, but I mean other marketing agencies. They know I’ve lost key people and had to REBUILD from scratch. They’ve been watching, and now that the work is finished, they are keeping a closer eye.
We all have enemies looking on our rebuilding process and wishing for our downfall. Enemies can come in many forms, including competitors of your same product. With God as our help, we will succeed and be able to be a testimony to these competitors, and they will know that only God could have helped make this happen.
God shows us in Nehimiah 6:15-16 how our enemies will react with the rebuilding is done:
So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days. When all our enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God.
When God is your strength and faith going through the rebuilding process, your success will be magnified by the decrease in your competition to even be able to compete! But more importantly, our business becomes a testimony even to our enemies that God can do the same for their businesses.
We entrepreneurs give thanks to our God for not only helping REBUILD our business but for also using us to help other entrepreneurs, even your competitors.
