Entrepreneurial Spirit Series – Choices

This is what the Lord says: Cursed is the one who trusts in man,who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the Lord. That person will be like a bush in the wastelands; they will not see prosperity when it comes. They will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives.  But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit (Jeremiah 17:5-8)

Isn’t it great to have choices?  The good news is that we can choose blessings over cursings.  We can choose to follow the ways of the LORD and experience freedom from fear and worry because we will be well watered and prosperous.  However, other choices result in disaster, miss opportunities and lack.

Everything that we do, even our professional endeavors, must have God at the center.  The scripture tells us that we are blessed if we put our trust in the Lord but cursed if we put our trust in man.  We are blessed if we put our confidence in God but cursed if we draw our strength from flesh.  As we set ourselves up for success by dotting every “i” and crossing every “t” when it comes to business documentation, legal requirements, capital finding, marketing and promotions, let’s not forget that the most important thing to do is to have a solid foundation.  That foundation is built on the solid rock.  All other ground is sinking sand.  We must build everything on the solid foundation of Christ.  Everything else will pass away.  Trust in God and allow Him to show up in an amazing way in your life.
