Is your business struggling?
"God is...always ready to help in times of trouble." Ps 46:1 NLT
When your business is failing, you can lose your sense of security, your peace of mind, and your ability to sleep. It even affects your family. If that's where you are today, read these words: "God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble." Clear your mind for a moment and think about this:
Everything you have belongs to God, including your business, right? He is the owner, and you're the manager. So when trouble comes, you have the right (and the responsibility) to go to Him for help and expect Him to turn things around for you. When nobody else was catching fish, Jesus told the disciples where to find a boatload of them. The Bible says that there is nothing too hard for God (See Jer 32:27), and that includes the problem you're facing and the situation you are in right now. The writer of Proverbs says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take" (Pr 3:5-6NLT).
And He can guide you through the advice of a friend who is succeeding where you're failing: "Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success" (Pr 15:22 NLT). Sometimes this calls for changing your policies, products, or personnel-and that takes courage and commitment. But if you have built your business on a foundation of integrity, fairness, quality products, and good service, you have the right to go to God in times of trouble, ask for His help, and expect to receive it.
