Bible Verses For Small Business Owners

By

Money makes the world spin, and it’s hard to argue with that logic in 2018. However, faith still plays a massive role in the lives of entrepreneurs around the world. And, the great thing is that a small business owner doesn’t have to mix and match when it comes to God and success. As with all things in life, the Creator is a guiding hand who will lead you from the dark and into the light. Businessmen and women may feel like there is a conflict of interests, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Remember that He is everywhere and plays a part in all things that are good in the world. If you are a Doubting Thomas, below is a selection of bible verses which should ease your conscious.

 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your path.”

Focusing on the business as a whole is easy. After all, if it doesn’t grow, then it isn’t much of a success. However, expanding into a successful establishment is more than numbers and facts and figures. There is a personal element because the men or women in charge have to develop too if the business is going to make a mark. When your hands are on the wheel, you are the one who is driving. With that in mind, use God to learn something new each and every day that will come in handy in the future. Lots of entrepreneurs enroll in JCU online courses to boost their resumes and gain vital postgraduate tricks of the trade. Others simply look, listen and learn from the people in the industry they trust and respect.

 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

Although you are the boss, the true boss is the big man upstairs. Through His will, He will lead the company through both the rough and the smooth times. And, there is no better captain to have in charge. Of course, His help requires prayer to make it happen as you have to succumb to God fully. So, praying for the company on a daily basis is an industry standard for you just like a monthly meeting is for other organizations. People might say it’s wrong to pray for materialistic things, yet it’s never wrong to ask God for guidance.

 

“Faith without works is dead.”

Still, prayer alone won’t transform a home-based business into a market leader. He might love us deeply, but He is a parent, and like all good ones He lets us make decisions and mistakes. Therefore, you can’t rely on the hand of God to do the heavy lifting – you have to take responsibility. As a rule, that means coming up with a viable plan which covers the burning questions. Also, it represents working smarter rather than working harder. Spending hours on a laptop is pointless if the time is unproductive. Sometimes, sending emails for half a day can result in solid leads.

 

“As I think in my heart, so am I.”

Everyone has thoughts and feelings, and they can come back to bite you on the backside. Business owners that operate from home are especially vulnerable to attack as there is a lot of time for introspection. “Am I doing the right thing?” “Should I try a different route?” These are questions which plague entrepreneurs yet God is on hand to help. Just understand that whatever mistakes you make are a learning curve when He is by your side. Once you realize you have faith, it’s much easier to stay positive and have the courage of your convictions.

“But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient!”

God is not Harry Potter – there is no magic wand, spell or potion. As a result, things don’t happen straight away regardless of faith or prayer. After all, there is a whole world of people that need His help. Also, it’s impossible for humans to understand His motives and actions. So, don’t fret if a solution doesn’t appear out of thin air. Be patient and accept His timing and realize that, where there is God’s will, there’s a way.

For the faithful, the verse above will help your business through the good and the bad times.
