As a Christian entrepreneurs, we don’t just walk blindly into business. Faith does not mean ‘blind,’ it means much more than that.
Let’s start with the biblical definition of faith: “Now faith is the confidence in what we hope for an assurance about what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1)
Faith starts with confidence and ends with hope in a reality that can’t be seen with the eyes. You could say faith starts in confidence and ends in vision.
When we start a business, we have confidence because we have done our research and listened to God’s direction; it is intelligent confidence. Then, we have confidence that we can succeed because we see beyond today. We have a vision for how our business will grow founded in our faith and trust in God.Faith starts in confidence and progresses to vision. Click To Tweet
Business takes a lot of faith.
We must have a faith that God placed a purpose in our lives and that purpose is in business. We must have faith in ourselves and our abilities as God has developed them in our lives. We must have faith that our business will be a success because God gave us the opportunity to start a business. All faith is grounded in who God is in our lives.
Faith is grounded in God
Faith that is grounded in God gives us the strength to move forward with our business. When we start a business we don’t know what will happen tomorrow, but we know that God has given us direction today. We know that God will give us wisdom, knowledge and opportunity as we open our lives and our business to Him. It is all about laying everything before the King of the Universe and trusting that He will guide you each step of the way.
Faith is bigger than us
To break it down, faith in business is about having a foundation outside of your business. Your faith must come from something bigger than yourself if you really want to weather the ups and downs in business. Life is tough and business is not always easy, but if we trust in God and His sovereignty, we know that we will always be on the right path.
I just want this short post to remind you that God is on your side. He brought you into business and directed your path to be on this page. God wants you to succeed if you simply rely on Him and open yourself up to His direction.
