Pray. Work. Pray.

Praying should outnumber working in a ratio of 2:1. Christians in today’s workforce should never start any morning without lifting up a specific prayer unto God for their own business or for their employer.  By praying to God before the workday even begins, it communicates to the Heavenly Father your genuine, heartfelt desire to carry out His divine purpose in all that you intend to do on that day.

 

As a Christian entrepreneur, which I prefer to label myself as a “Kingdom-preneur” (check back soon for my article defining this new term which God gave to me), I enjoy browsing and seeking out noteworthy, resourceful, Christian blogs.

 

Recently, I came across a blog which you must take a moment to check out entitled:

In the Company of Prayer  (http://www.companyofprayer.com/) —-which incidentally is located along with a link to my blog Cornerinsight (https://cornerinsight.wordpress.com) under the Religion section on ALLTOP (http://alltop.com) .

 

In the Company of Prayer fulfills the ongoing, daily need for a distinct focal point to guide our prayers. This ensures the vital inclusion of the following specifics into our “work related” prayer time such as; our daily in-house business operations/meetings, co-worker/client/customer relationships, as well as the numerous business to business transactions or interactions which we encounter on any given day. It is crucial for us to usher God and the Holy Spirit’s presence into our workplace environment on each and every day! Whether you are a home-based entrepreneur running your business venture out of your living room, a retail associate at the local department store, or a corporate attorney practicing law in the MEGA-law firm with satellite locations around the world—It is essential for you to begin the workday in prayer. Your prayer life should spill over and infuse your “workspace”, regardless of the actual physical surroundings or environment.

 

I encourage you to visit In the Company of Prayer by clicking on http://www.companyofprayer.com/

Once you get to their main page, sign up & join their “Morning Briefings” for free! Then you will receive a daily email sent directly to your Inbox; so you can start off each workday morning focused in prayer. I am certain that you will find that in each morning’s prayer God will speak precisely to a current situation which you are dealing with or He will without a doubt give you divine insight and preparation for upcoming circumstances that you will face on the job.

 

Just remember that God’s Word says when we pray, then we should believe that we receive! I can assure you I will always believe—and I remain in a posture to receive exactly what God has just for me.

 

 

I want to leave you with these 4 key points, as you move forward with the things God has spoken to your spirit:

1. Step out on faith, and be encouraged.

2. Walk in your God-given authority.

3. Carry out God’s Agenda 1st; and He will complete your agenda during the process.

4. Seek to advance God’s Kingdom as a “Kingdom-preneur”!

 

Be Blessed!

Mondays…..

Mondays just have a way of being overloaded with immediate requests that come in to us from every direction. We can choose to view Mondays like the “world system” as being a headache-filled stressful day. On the other hand, we can decide to view Mondays according to “God’s Word system” as it being a day filled with limitless possibilities and awesome opportunities. I personally choose to view Mondays in the light of God’s Word, because it is a new day in the Lord and we should rejoice and be glad in it! Enjoy your Monday! (as well as Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!) Every new day gives us a clean slate to create our God given destinies and dreams upon. Celebrate every new day, as if it was your first! God did not have to wake you up this morning, but He did. There is a specific reason that He decided to wake you up on today, are you fulfilling His call on your life?

You just never know…

I have to admit, thoughts of waiting for my number to be called at the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles), literally causes me to get a brief wave of nausea. However, today I knew I had procrastinated long enough and had to make the trek over to the DMV. I walked in to a standing room only crowd, with 18 plus customer services lines open. I was given my number – E622, and attempted to scout out an empty seat where I could sit down and begin my wait.

Then I spotted it, one vacant seat beside a young lady holding a newborn infant in her arms. So I made a dash for it. When I sat down I begin to think that perhaps this seat was vacant, because no one wanted to take the chance of the little one disturbing an already miserable moment of waiting indefinitely. However, I decided to take my chances, and if the precious little one did decide to scream and cry then I would happily join right in and get my frustration out too!

When I sat down, I could tell that the young mother had been there for quite awhile. The little baby was resting ever so peacefully, even through the repetitive monotone announcements which blasted over the intercom system. “{DINGING BELL NOISE} Now serving B152 at window number 5, {DINGING BELL NOISE} Now serving D243 at window number 16”, now I am rethinking why I had to come here in the first place. Rather than counting the number of other items on my agenda that needed completing today; I made a conscious decision to make the best of the situation. I decided to ask the young mother, how old was her little one. She told me she had her just two short weeks ago. “Wow,” I replied, “Congratulations!!” We continued with small talk, to hopefully help the time pass by a little less painfully. During our small talk, she told me she had already been waiting for two hours. My heart sank for her and the precious little one, as well as my preconceived idea that surely it couldn’t take me very long just to drop off the certificate I had with me. So I mentally debated if what I had to do could wait until tomorrow, in which I would be certain to arrive just as soon as they opened for business. So I decided to just wait a few more minutes, and think about leaving again. Then I heard it, even among the obnoxiously dinging bell noise followed by the computer simulated voice calling out the next number to be served. It was God’s voice I heard, and it was distinctly loud and clear. He said, “I want you to sow into the young woman with the infant sitting beside you.” For just a moment, it was almost as if I was disoriented to my physical surroundings and my Heavenly Father was speaking over my shoulder into my ear.” So I carefully unzipped my wallet, while my inner spirit was asking ‘how much do I give her God?’ He immediately told me what to give her, and I easily folded the bill into the palm of my hand. The enemy immediately tried to interject my thinking with comments like, “you know you need that to go towards your bills, and you dont need to give her anything you dont know she may have more money than you do.” I fought back against the enemy, and I knew this was what God wanted me to do. It was almost like God switched on the CD track of one of my Bishop’s sermons which he delivered a few weeks ago on giving and sowing into others. I heard my Spiritual Father, Bishop Daniel Robertson, Jr., saying “When God tells you to do something, DO IT!” I remembered when he explained to us in the Body of Christ, how important it is to follow God’s timing. Because when God is ready to move, He wants you to move immediately on what He has instructed you to do.

I sat there only a few more minutes contemplating when I was going to give it to her. Then in God’s perfect timing, her number was called. As she was gathering her bag, her little one wrapped in the pink blanket, and her clipboard she stood up. I extended out my hand with the folded bill in it, and made eye contact with her. I said to her, “God told me to give this to you.” Our eyes were fixed, and frozen as she stood there looking at me in disbelief. She opened her mouth to say something, but the words just would not come out. I smiled at her, and neither one of us could utter a word. When she approached the customer service window, I knew that my purpose for coming to the DMV today was to bless that young woman. I knew God had ordered my steps there to precisely carry out a task He needed completing. I easily got up from my seat, and happily exited through the double doors so I could get in my car and get back to work. Which just brings me to the awesome realization of understanding that you just never know how God is going to use you to bless someone else in His name. I am grateful to God for choosing me as His vessel, to handle His Kingdom Business right here and right now. I want God to get the Glory out of everything I do, say, and write for the rest of my life.

Be Blessed- I know I am!

A Proverbs 31 Woman

What I believe it means to be a true “Proverbs 31” woman:

  1. She stands strong in the face of trials and adversity, because she knows that her strength comes entirely from God.
  2. She gives of herself abundantly and unselfishly to all those who need her, while expecting nothing in return.
  3. She stands ready and prepared at a moments notice to carry out those things which the Lord instructs her to do for His Kingdom.
  4. She possesses noble character, integrity, and excellence!
  5. She is a successful businesswoman, because she operates in line with God’s Kingdom Principles.
  6. She lives a Holy and virtuous life, because the Kingdom of God resides within her.
  7. Her life and all the fruit produced from her work brings Glory to the Most High God.

And Proverbs 31 verse 25 from the Amplified Bible says- “Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; she rejoices over the future [the latter day or time to come, knowing that she and her family are in readiness for it]!

Things I want the World to know…..

1. Stop obsessing over what you cannot change, and focus on the things that you can change! (Starting with yourself)

2. There is no one who can take away the divine destiny that God has placed inside of you.

3. The only resource book that you need for success in life and business in God’s Holy Word- The BIBLE.

4. How you view your life is up to you, if you can think successful then you can be successful. If you believe you are defeated, then you will always remain defeated.

5. Everything you need is already inside of you, use it!

6. You must realize that not everyone is going to like you, accept you, approve you, support you, or love you – recognize this and wish them well anyway!

7. You cannot do everything in one day, but what you can get done- complete it in EXCELLENCE!

Daily Dose of Inspiration

Here is a daily dose of inspiration for you…..

“Save now, we beseech You, O Lord; send now prosperity, O Lord, we beseech You, and give to us success!”

                                                           -Psalms 118:25 (Amp)

The Lord is the only One who can give us True and Everlasting prosperity and success. It took me going through some quick passing success and failures as I was growing up to realize this concept. Once I did grasp hold of seeking God first in every area of my life and career, then all the other details of life simply feel into place. However, seeking Him first is the one step that I encourage you not to omit. When we handle God’s business first, then He takes care of our business in the process. If you are at a point where you do not know what to do, then just ask Him to guide you. Then be prepared and ready to do what He instructs you to do! Then as you start doing what He has told you to do, you will walk right into your blessing.
