How to Start a Business Scripturally

Text:  Proverbs 3:9-10, 10:22,   Deuteronomy  28:8, 26:1-2, Leviticus 27:30,  II Chronicles  31:5.

INTRODUCTION

God's  expectation  for his  people  is that they will lend  to many nations and not borrow, they will be employers of labor with multiple  streams of income.   It  is not enough to have a paying job or a salary  job; you need to make more room for the blessings  of God that  are due upon your life through multiple streams of income.

You should  find out what business  the  Lord  wants  you to engage  in so that you will not get involved in trial and error  and thus, make room for the expression  of God's  blessing upon your life.

There is a way to start  and do business  scripturally that will connect you to the abundance  that  is available in God's kingdom and there  is also  a way to do business  ordinarily  that will make you to have the common  outcome  that  every other  natural  man is having and even sometimes  failures.   But may you connect to the  abundance  that  is available  in God's kingdom in Jesus  name.

Let us consider the following steps that will help you:

1. DIVINE  IDEA: Let your business  be an idea  from the Lord.  Don't just pick  a business  idea because  it is famous  or  because  that  is what everybody  is doing. GET A WORD FROM THE LORD, that will be the scriptural ground that you are standing  upon, Don't pick an idea  from your environment,  rather  wait  upon the Lord and let  God who knows the future give you a direction that will lead you to your wealthy place.

a.When God gives you an idea he expects you to operate it at the level of God,  excellence is not negotiable.  Do not ever operate a divine idea  at a mediocre level. Any business idea that you are executing, do it well, it's going global,  operate  in a global mindset  and dimension.   For example, God  gives you a business  idea on groundnut,  it is  not for you to start putting groundnut in five-naira  transparent   nylon and say,and you are working a divine idea, at this  level  of your training  in  God. You should begin to find out what are the things you can make from groundnut, like  homemade   peanut   butter,  groundnut  spread,  and  wholesales supply  of all forms of groundnut ... Think  big!  Think grand!  Think  and function  at the level  of God.

b.Every idea from God will be blessed of God ifyou workout  the details.

c.Prepare  well.  Let  your preparation   be at the level  of God, what will last must be thoroughly prepared  for.

d.You  should start  with spiritual   preparation.   Birth it forth in prayer.

Before you start telling  people  something, be sure it is established.

2. SOW A COMMENSURATE TAKE  OFF SEED AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR BUSINESS:

With  a proper  understanding   of a kingdom system sowing your seed will connect your business  to a ripple  of divine flows and harvest. How you start  is always crucial.  You can't  plan  to start a transport  company and your starting  seed  is  350 naira,  what you have done is that you have drawn  a limiting  line  to the expanse  and  ,magnitude   of what YOUR BUSINESS  CAN BECOME.  WHEN  YOU SOW YOUR  SEED,  you sow commensurate  to the future that God has earmarked  for the business.

3. TAKE THE ANOINTING ALONG:

Receive impartation  for your business  and be sure you are a proper son in the house so that the anointing will flow effortlessly into your affairs.

4. LET  GOD GIVE YOU THE NAME OF YOUR BUSINESS:

Name   your   business    by  inspiration     not   by  environmental permutation.  Divine names will always draw divine favor.

5. PRESS FURTHER  IN THE PRESENCE  OF GOD FOR DIVINE STEPS.

Press further  in prayer and let the Holy  Spirit bring instructions  to your  heart  on the steps  to take. Also,  press  further  in finding out details about  the business.   Make  sure  you do not spare  in searching  for information   and details from every necessary quarter.

6. PARTNER  YOUR BUSINESS  WITH THE ANOINTING AND THE VISION

Partnering  with the vision and the anointing  will always secure the future of your business. Make sure it is constant and regular.  It could be a certain  percentage of your income that you always  set aside to partner  with  the vision.  By so doing  you engage  the force of the calling and the vision  to command always a blessing in the direction of your business.

Partner with God over the business regularly  by sowing seeds. There

are three things that you sow /give to, these are;

  • the work of God
  • the house of God 
  • the man of God

7. BE  FAITHFUL   WITH YOUR FIRST FRUIT SEED, THIS  IS CRUCIAL.

DO NOT EAT YOUR FIRST FRUIT.  Then,  always honor the lord  with the first fruit of the increase of your business.

Your first fruit will do three things:

a. It  will ensure  continuity:  no environmental  condition  can dry up your business because it is powered from a higher covenant. b.ltensures  increasing  promotion.

c. lt secures your place  in abundance.

8. ENSURE THAT YOU ARE A FAITHFUL TITHER.

Pay your tithe regularly  and particularly  the first one tenth tenth of your income and not one tenth  of your income. As a faithful tither you activate the covenant that devourer  is rebuked  for your sake, nothing can eat up your business.

9. DO NOT LIMIT YOURSELF IN THE SCOPE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

Let God be the owner who draws the scope and directs  it while you are the staff.  PUT YOURSELF  ON A SALARY SCALE in your business. SEPARATE  YOURSELF  FROM  THAT BUSINESS,   DO NOT ASSUME THAT ALL THE MONEY  IS YOUR OWN.

10. FULFILL ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Follow  all necessary  procedures  and processes  that will legitimize your  business.   Don't  cut corners,   pay your  employees  and  don't cheat your customers.

11. BE PRAYERFUL AND BE VIGILANT.

Do not allow  or give room for occultic in-roads  or attacks. Don't  be careless   such  that  you  open  yourself   up  to  occultic  attack.  Be watchful; don't let business   take you away from God. As the business grows  wider, you need  to be more  prayerful,  more  sensitive  and stronger. You cannot afford to joke and take lightly your spiritual  life because the wider the scope of your business  the more importantly you take your prayer life.

CONCLUSION

Learn  to  run  your  business   in the  kingdom  way, with  kingdom principles  and kingdom standards  and begin to enjoy outcomes  in the realm  of abundance.
