As a woman of faith, do you doubt God wants your business to prosper financially? Or, you may wonder how to find success as a Christian woman entrepreneur while honoring God? If this is you, you’re not alone.
There are many Christian women entrepreneurs who want to build their business and serve God but feel like they’re fighting an uphill battle. In this blog post, we’ll explore the answer to the question: how can you find financial success and prosper as a godly woman entrepreneur?
The first thing we need to do is settle it in our minds that God wants your business to prosper.
The Word of God is loaded with His promises to bless us financially. We just have to find them and claim them as our own. Contrary to what many Christians believe, it is God’s will for us to have plenty of money to take care of ourselves. But also to bless those who are in need.
When we have plenty of money and we manage it properly, we end up having enough to take care of our needs AND bless those around us.
As Christian entrepreneurs, God has given us talents and skills to succeed in business. He wants us to use those gifts to bring glory to His name. But sometimes we get in the way. Primarily through a lack of knowledge or faith in His promises.
Ultimately, God wants us to be successful in our business endeavors so we can minister, spread the Good News, and share his love with others.
Here are five ways to know God wants your business to prosper financially.
- God wants to be the source of your financial success.
“And you shall remember the Lord you God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” (Deuteronomy 8:18)
- When we do what is right in the eyes of the Lord, He will bless us in all that we do.
“All these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you because you obey the voice of the Lord your God” (Deuteronomy 28:2)
- The Bible tells us that when we sow bountifully into His Kingdom, He will give back to us what we give.
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38)
- The more we meditate on God’s word, the more successful we become.
“The Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make you way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” (Joshua 1:8)
- God’s plan is to prosper you in business.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
