But the reason it didn’t work out then, but will now, is because I know as a Christian, business is the key for me to provide.

This is the hardest step. I was afraid to start.

The one thing I had to overcome was the fear. I was afraid to make a lot of money in business as a confident Christian. A Christian who doesn’t hide his beliefs, but owns them, like I do in my every day life.

It got to the point in my previous business where I would say things to friends like…

“unless I can talk about my faith, I cannot continue”.

This sounds like I had a gag order on me, or speaking about my faith would ruin my business. But it wasn’t true. I was afraid to do what I did anywhere else. Talk about God.

But at the time I decided that I would not mention my faith. I’m not saying All Christians need to shout from the rooftops they’re Christians. But for me, I was teaching, the Bible should impact every area of your life, but not living it out the way I believed. I felt fake.

Starting A Business Is Good & Godly

I have no doubts anymore I should run my business. Because I’m empowered by many examples in the Bible, that show me, business is not only good. But something we’re encouraged to do. Starting a business is Godly.

I now know and believe, the Bible has all the answers to running a successful business in any period of time. And this empowers me to take the steps forward towards my destiny. A good book to read on this topic is this.

For example, I read in the Bible, 1st Thessalonians 4:11-12. It says,

And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; [12] That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

The Formula For Starting, Soaring & Sustaining A Successful Business

If I do three things, I get two things. That sounds like a bad deal, but the two things are priceless. I would pay thousands to know how to do this. And that’s why I have over the years to learn this. Even though these principles were right there, free for all in the Bible.

The three things are,

Study to be quiet. Mind your mouth.

Focus on your business. Mind your money.

And work, don’t be lazy. Mind Your muscle.

If I mind my mouth, money, and muscle, then I get to walk honestly with everyone.

I Access Authenticity,

people know they can count on me, and I won’t lack anything.

I Access Abundance,

I have everything I need.

Imagine if right now, because you start a business, focused on working on your business quietly, you didn’t lack. And you never expected any letters with red writing coming through the door.

This is the formula…

Mind your mouth, money and muscle, then you Access Authenticity and Access Abundance. (1 Th 4:11-12) Click To Tweet

I read what scholars say about this verse. And most are saying the same thing. Paul was encouraging them to focus on their skills, do their jobs, and they wouldn’t lack. The next time Paul writes to the Thessalonians he says something similar as well. This is from 2nd Thessalonians 3:12.

He’s speaking about people who are not working, not minding their own business as he said in the previous letter. He says,

we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

The Apostles Had Businesses

Paul isn’t going to encourage something he wouldn’t do himself. Paul made tents for a living. Scholars even say Paul encouraged entrepreneurship. But it’s not only Paul.

At least four of the disciples were fishermen, John’s Gospel suggests even more of them were (John 21). James and John had employees to help with fishing. These four disciples ran their own business.

This gave them the freedom to preach the Gospel and fulfil their calling. And your business will do the same. But if you don’t overcome the fear to start, you will never see what God has in store for you.

The point is, these are only some examples that helped me overcome the fear I had.

Every fear I have, I destroy by building a case of scriptures in the Bible to wipe it out. The Bible has solutions to everything you are going through. When you overcome the fear that’s holding you back, you will realise, you don’t have the time.

But that’s because the system doesn’t want you to escape. But I share what all the wealthy people in the world do to escape this trap in this article right here. I do it, and it will help you too.

Go Win And God Bless.
