God is my CEO

1’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not toharm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with allyour heart.’ Jeremiah 29:11-12

The messages bombard us daily.
“You can have it all.”
“You make it happen.”
Motivational speakers proclaim,
“Create your own destiny,” and offer countless ways to helpus achieve our plans for financial success. What happens? We rejoin the rat race with all its pressures. Then, when trouble knocks on our door, we call on God to solve our problems.When He doesn’t fix our situation, we think God is punishing us. 

The real issue is that our plan itself was flawed. While it may have been our plan for success, it was never God’s plan. It was doomed from the beginning. God has a plan for you, a plan specifically designed for your success. He’s called you by name to fulfill His plan for your life. God has defined success His own way, not the world’s way, and He’s provided a plan for you to succeed His way, not your way, and on His timing, not yours.

While this sounds harsh, it’s important to challenge your thinking before you begin to create your business plan. Following God’s plan is not a part-time pursuit, but a full-time commitment. Take a moment to re-read the last sentence of Jeremiah 29:11-12:
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Are you willing to trust God with all your heart, even during those tough times when nothing seems to be going right? If you’re ready to answer “yes”, then let’s get started.

Your personal business plan is based on three principles and a promise. By following these principles, we become like the tree planted by streams of water in Psalm 1:3. We yield fruit, grow strong, and prosper in all we do.
