Understanding our role in our business will influence every aspect of our business. We may say that we want to bring glory to God through our business, but have we ever thought about handing over ownership to Him? Though the world see us as the owner of our businesses, we must give that role to God. If this was a one time, 'signing over of your business' to God, it would be simple, however, each day, we are faced with the temptation to take control and call the shots, only relying on ourselves in our own strength and human effort to press on. In my experience, that only takes you so far. Seeing yourself as the owner has many pitfalls, and relying on Self is one of them. Its dangerous and not very sustainable in the long run. Devote your business to God. Build your business on a solid foundation of faith and have the understanding of God's ownership of the company. Having the sincere realization that the company doesn't actually belong to you, it belongs to the Lord is a powerful revelation.
James 1:17," Every and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like the shifting shadows."
Lord, we acknowledge that You are in control and you don't change l. I devote my business to you. Lord, help me to give every aspect, every detail, every business issue over to you and I will choose to honor you through it. I am thankful that you care about me and every aspect of my business and of my life. Amen.
TI TIP: I love post it notes! They are just one of my favorite things because they help me to remember things and I put them anywhere! Take a post it note, note card, or just a piece of paper and jot this statement down, "I own __(insert business name here_________signed, God
"I have done that with my own business, and its a helpful reminder of who's company with whom I have the opportunity to manage.
