Let’s look at Isaiah 46:9-10 to see practical Business wisdom from the Bible.
Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ Isaiah 46:9-10
Quick Wisdom from this Business Bible Verse:
Too often we try to control everything we do in this life. We should plan and make every effort to the best we can in every situation, but at that point we have to let Go do what He is best at: taking care of us. Ultimately, He is in control.
I used to tell a story. Imagine the three strongest people you can think of (The Rock, Arnold, etc.). They are standing behind you. A car has fallen on someone you love. Would you ask these strong people to stand aside as you try to lift the car off your loved one? That would not be wise.
We must release things to God if we really understand He is in control. We do as much as we can and then let God take over. The old saying goes: We have to let go and let God.
It is a good balance. Remember the serenity prayer: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.”
Putting this Business Bible Verse in Practice:
- Post the serenity prayer somewhere close by or make it your computer screen wallpaper. Just use it to remind yourself that God is in charge.
- Write down anything that is stressing you out on a sticky note or scratch paper. Pray about each item one at a time and crumple it up. Throw it in the trash physically and release it mentally.
- Commit to praying no less than five full minutes a day for a part of your business that is frustrating you. Don’t allow any distractions, commit that time to one specific focus.
- Take a long walk in a park or some sort of nature. Just look at all the things that God takes care of. Take a deep breath and release it. God is taking care of you by providing the air you breathe. Take the rest of your walk to thank God for all that He provides for us. (If you can’t get away to take a walk in nature . . .you need to get away and take a walk in nature!)
