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!

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]!

The Real Power to Change

We all talk about change, but what are we really doing individually as well as corporately within the Body of Christ to initiate a global transformation where racial, gender, and nationality divisions are completely dissolved. How do we essentially take the initial steps to actually break down the barriers and MAKE IT HAPPEN?  I believe all the answers we need are present right in the Word of God.

The Word of God gives critical insight into how we should begin making this spiritual revolution a reality in our daily life.

 

Colossians 3:8-11 in the Amplified Bible tells us starting with verse 8:

 

“But now put away and rid yourselves [completely] of all these things: anger, rage, bad feeling toward others, curses and slander, and foulmouthed abuse and shameful utterances from your lips!

(9) Do not lie to one another, for you have stripped off the old (unregenerate) self with its evil practices.

(10) And have clothed yourselves with the new [spiritual self], which is [ever in the process of being] renewed and remolded into [fuller and more perfect knowledge upon] knowledge after the image (the likeness) of Him Who created it.

(11)[In this new creation all distinctions vanish.] There is no room for and there can be neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, [nor difference between nations whether alien] barbarians or Scythians [who are the most savage of all], nor slave or free man; but Christ is all and in all [everything and everywhere, to all men, without distinction of person].

These four scriptural verses contain a divine set of instructions for all within the Body of Christ. If we are true believers in God’s Word, then we must be obedient to follow what His Holy Word commands us to do. The Gospel has the power to tear down any and all barriers. Paul was expressed the importance of not focusing on the categories of race, ethnic background, gender, socioeconomic status, or an individual’s background, because the Gospel of Jesus Christ defines us all as being one class of believers.

 

We must embrace all people of every race, every culture, and from every nation. Remember, “Christ is all, and in all.” [Colossians 3:10 KJV]
