I love promises. There’s something comforting when someone promises something, or when a product or service promises to deliver on what it says it can do.
Promises give me peace of mind. They relieve me of worry and stress. If my employee promises to deliver something by a certain date, I’m able to trust and move on to other things.
We need promises around us, especially in a world that doesn’t want you to succeed, move up, and make a name for yourself. With so much greed, envy and pride, it’s no wonder we get stuck in a certain comfort zone.
People will tell us we can’t, we’re not worthy or we’re a failure. Past experiences will make us feel doubt and anxiety, holding us back from experiencing more out of our entrepreneurial callings.
When we find ourselves stuck in a certain place that isn’t letting us pursue our bigger plans or ideas, we need promises.
When we find ourselves out of ideas, desperate to know what the next move is, it’s promised that will pull us out.
We need promises around us so that we can keep moving forward, keep creating, and push through to purposed-focused living.
God makes many promises to us Godpreneurs. In fact, scholars have found 5,467 promises in the bible. Wow, that’s a lot of promise!
The bible says:
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. (1 John 4:4 NIV)
If you’re going to pursue your passion for business, you have to surround yourself with promises like this from God. You have to have an authority over you and always believes in you and will show you grace and Light the path in front of you towards your calling.
We Godpreneurs especially need to know the promises of God. The business world is tough. Things change every day, people let us down, clients are messy people, and buyers lie. We need promises to lay our foundation so that we can keep loving, keep creating, and keep loving forward in our callings.
God promised this in the bible:
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Once we know that we were born for something, that we have a creator that created us for something, we will go from having no focus or meaning to starting and running a purpose-focused business that will give us a sense of satisfaction no money can buy or education can give us.
My prayer for you today is
God, please give the reader of this message hope in your promises and rest, peace, and victory over whatever is holding them back from all of what God created them to do!
