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!

Unction

When I was a teenager, I often remember my mother and grandmother tossing around the word “unction” more than a handful of times.  Within the context of their frequent conversations, I distinctly remember the term “unction” being used to describe someone who lacked motivation a.k.a. “get-up-and- go.” Back then I do recall them wondering on several occasions what had happened to my unction or “inner drive” to organize and keep my room clean. All these years, I just assumed “unction” was one of the many slang expressions which found its way into the human lingo throughout the generations. So this morning as I carried out my daily Bible study, devotions, and prayer time; THERE IT WAS! I just happened to stumble upon the exact word “unction” in 1 John 2:20 which reads:

              “But ye have unction from the Holy One; and ye know all things.” (KJV)

The Amplified Bible awesomely delivers the same verse (1 John 2:20) in these terms:

              “But you have been anointed by [you hold a sacred appointment from, you have been given an unction from] the Holy One, and you all know [the Truth] or you know all things.” (AMP)

But how many know when we have an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father, nothing ever happens by chance or coincidence. So finding that particular word this morning was not by chance. Immediately, I was led to look up the word “unction” in the dictionary; to see what the formal definition just happened to be for the word I always assumed was not really a word. The Encarta English North American Dictionary listed four meanings for the word “Unction” which I found significant. I believe the following four definitions which were: (1.) anointing with oil, (2.) real or (also can be) pretended earnestness, (3.) something soothing (something that soothes or comforts somebody), are of great importance to the Body of Christ. I let the various definitions marinate for a moment in my spirit. I continued reading God’s Word only to come across another vital verse of scripture. I knew it was a direct confirmation to me from God, which gave me the green light to start the ministry He had been speaking about to me. In 1 John Chapter 2 verse 27 of the Amplified Bible it reads:       

               “But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [permanently] in you; [so] then you have no need that anyone should instruct you. But just as His anointing teaches you concerning everything and is true and is no falsehood, so you must abide in (live in, never depart from) Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him], just as [His anointing] has taught you [to do].”

For several months I have been wrestling with knowing that God had speaking to me about starting a particular type of ministry, however I could not help but think how I did not have any formal theology or ministerial training. Nevertheless I believe with a God-given level and degree of certainty that He has anointed me with a specific unction to carry out His plan. Furthermore, when we begin to function in our God given unction or anointing, everything will effortlessly fall into place. God always orchestrates a perfect, organized schedule for launch with an accompanying plan of operation. As the Master Creator, He always knows and will always know right where you belong. If that place does not exist yet, then it must mean He wants you to create it.
