Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God
How many of you ask God is it “okay” for you to “do” something? And if you have done this, have you asked God every single time? If you’re like me, you haven’t. God has to come first in everything we do especially if we want it to work out right. That’s where I was failing. And it could have been something as simple as me not asking God what I should name my company. Trust and believe, I went through a few names until one day I asked God what I should name my business and he answered.
This principle is not just for business success, it is for life success. Whenever you put God first in your life you are guaranteed success in every area of your life. Books written on very successful entrepreneurs have stated that the first thing those entrepreneurs do is wake up and pray to God. They understood the concept of putting God first in every decision, in every circumstance, and in every situation of not only their life but their business.
So, when someone on your job is treating you unjustly, when you’re looking to start that new business, when the one you love hurts you, when, you’re not making the amount of money you want, when an extra bill comes in the mail, when attacks come....talk to God about it first. A lot of times we get so used to calling our friends, family members, and co-workers that we forget who our true friend is. God knows everything and He is Sovereign which means he is in control. Why not go to the controller for your next move. Flesh cannot help flesh with spiritual things. So the next time you want to pick up the phone after an awful ordeal or for guidance on your business, talk to God about first so that you may receive direction from Him. Seeking Him = True Success!
