Day 1: Put God First

blog devotional

If you know anything about me or you have followed me at all, this first day is no surprise. The most important thing you can do for your business is to start with God, to stay with God, and end with God.  If the Lord gave you an idea for a business, He wants to walk with you in it, walk with you through it, and He wants to bless you by it, but you need to be near to Him and have relationship for him to do that. He knows that having your own business is no easy task. The enemy wants you and your business to be broke, helpless, and to fail. God wants you and your business to be blessed, fruitful, and to be prosperous! One thing I have learned in owning my own business, is that when you are walking with God, He will give you a supernatural peace and the ability to stay calm when the days struggles come upon you-and they will come upon you!  Make the commitment every day to spend time with God, even if its 5-10 minutes to read His Word and to focus on drawing near to him during the journey. By doing this, you will be able to stay encouraged, gain insight and direction, stay calm and be blessed! 

Matthew 6:33 says, " But Seek First the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will  be added to you". Starting the day with God and prayer is everything. .

Proverbs 16:3 says, 'Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans."

God, help me to put First things and that is You! Give me the desire to keep your Word in my Spirit and on my mind first thing every day. Show me what it looks like and what works best to start my day in your Word, to stay in your Word, and to end the day in your Word. Amen

 

 

TI Tip: Set an alarm on your phone to remind yourself to spend some quiet time with God that day. This will allow you to step away, re-set, re-focus, and re-center your day with Him!

    I love this idea!!! My husband is a franchisee for a national chain and I am a contracted travel agent. We are building our 4th store and I just started my job and am trying to find new clients. I know that when God is as involved in our businesses as we are that we will be successful. I’m looking forward to having a guide for the next 21 days.

    Love this idea of praying for our businesses! This past year working with family was very trying so I came upon this prayer in our church bulletin and copied it onto my calendar alarm to go off every morning to make sure I have scheduled time to pray and listen for what he has for me. Hopefully repetition will help me remember to follow him everyday 🙏
    God of light and love, attune our ears to hear you calling us to come alive in our journey with you. May the voices of anxiety, disappointment, and self-criticism fade away at the sound of your declaration that you love us so much that your Son lived and dwelt among us. In Christ’ name we pray, Amen.
