BUILDING WITH THE MOST AMAZING BUSINESS PARTNER
On day thirteen, I couldn't help but think about how important it is to be intimate with the Lord in more than one way. Our Heavenly Father longs for us to speak with Him, to read His love letter to us, and to be as real with us as possible in order to reveal who He truly is. Today, I wanted to go a step further and push us into another lever with our Father in terms of intimacy. God wants us to completely trust Him and surrender to Him, so why not make us partners in doing business with Him? I love the essence of being a businesswoman. We often think about wanting to start a business in order to eventually be successful and financially free, but fear, worry, and every other type of concern under the sun makes us hesitate to even get started, and once we start something, the naysayers come in and speak the doubt that is already in our hearts, and we stop before we even get started. But we forget that God owns and controls everything, so why not collaborate with the most incredible business partner ever?
So, starting today, I want you to fix your heart on the Lord and think about that business you've been thinking of starting, or the one you already have. Consider how this can benefit not only the present, but also the future, and even help individuals come closer to God or closer to heaven. We are the salt of the earth, according to the Bible, so let us not lose our saltiness. Get creative, you serve a God who created the world and said, "Let us make them in our image," so dream a little or big. Allow the Holy Spirit to enter, kick doubts to the curb, and reach for the moon. I dare you to take a leap of faith in God. Give it time, six months, eight months, a year or so, but don't stop seeking God in the process; He is the best business partner, and He already knows the potential risks of what will happen.
He is very strategic, so why are you sitting there trying to figure out how or making a million and one reasons why it won't work, such as I don't have the finances, how will the bills get paid, and what about the children? Trust God; His arm is not too short to save, therefore don't let your sin or sins keep you from enjoying your greatest life yet. Give yourself a million and one reasons why you should join forces with God and launch a business that will further God's Kingdom. This is why fasting is important: it allows us to hear from God and prepare ourselves to receive heaven. If we want heaven on earth, we must live in Kingdom fashion; we cannot live as the world does. Every day, Satan builds his kingdom of darkness, employing his children to spread it; why can't we think of heaven and work with God to grow the Kingdom of heaven? Keep in mind that you are not alone in this!
