What Is A Business? How Is God Affecting Yours Today?

17

Deuteronomy 8:18 A business is any commercial or industrial activity that one engages, with the purpose of making profit. The main purpose of any business is to generate income- the ability for a man or woman to eke out a living- either periodically or per commodity. A typical example is the fashion designer, whose income is generated through sales of clothing materials and professional skills; in this same vein, A business can also be defined as the platform for exchange of value for goods and services. Business is a vital aspect of life and living, which has been in existence for ages, and continues to evolve throughout generations of mankind. And we find documented evidence of God's hand in man's business, as far back as Biblical times, like Father Abraham (Gen 13:2-4), Job (Job 1:3), Apostle Paul (Acts 18:3) and King Solomon ((1 Kings 10:22-29, 2 Chronicles 9:13-14)were all successful businessmen. No one is entitled to financial gain without engaging in productive activity or exchange of value for service provided. And every child of God belongs to a breakthrough family in Jesus Christ. (Prov;13v11: Matt;5v13-15: Matt;7v20) All of our skills and special talents that we use in our businesses are all given to us by God, and that is a very good reason to include HIM in all of our business plans When making decisions about every venture- especially after gathering relevant information, it is very important to always invite God to give the verdict, through prayers, or HIS Word, because it is HE alone who knows all things. And only through His will do we become a wonder to our generation It is one thing to be in a place and another to partake in the blessings associated with that place. Just as, it is not enough to associate with God, but to fully abide in Him, hence our hearts must be connected. (1Cor;7v20: John;15v5: Matt;7v24-25). Top 5 Reasons GOD Should Be Your Business Strategist God has been since forever. Imagine co-running a business or project whatsoever with an Entity that has been, that still is and forever will be, or simply tapping from His ageless wisdom. HE knows what has been, what is being and what will be Although GOD has been around orchestrating mighty acts since before the beginning of time, God does not meddle in the affairs of men, unless invited. God will speed your processes If your ways and processes align with divine ordination, God is known to bend time, skip lengthy processes and even break supernatural laws for you. Those who have experienced God's speedy hand at work in their affairs call Him the Time Bender, who needs no permission from anyone. God's ways are not our ways, neither are His thoughts on the same track with ours. God will improve your quality We live in a highly competitive world today, where we have more discerning customers who are not easily impressed. But having a Master strategist like GOD, who confuses the wise with the foolish things of this world, success is guaranteed. My mentor in the Faith shared the testimony of a fashion designer who bought a car within months by handling just one customer. God will make your workforce more productive with less. When the productivity of a business declines, it's normal to look for ways to make the workforce more productive, with cost reductions. But what God does is to help remove the limitations of the workforce, and allowing workers to do more with less. Consider Gideon in the Bible, with 300 selected men, he defeated an army of several thousands, by simply following God's counsel.
