Why Christian Businesses Succeed in Any Economic Condition
Many people are not aware of the biblical principles that work behind the scenes, to help Christians succeed in any economic condition. They are not new or special techniques, but spiritual principles that Christian businessmen can access everyday of their business life.
One of the most important principles is wisdom. It's enables you to judge situations from both a natural and spiritual perspective. It's one of the many benefits of letting God's Word guide your decision making processes.
It equips you with a discernment that other people don't have, because of that discernment, you'll be enabled to do what they can't do.
Wisdom will advance you in your business or career, keep you at peace (Prv 3:17-18). and provide you with a solution to any problem. (1 Cor 10:13)
How to Access Spiritual Wisdom
To obtain wisdom is simple. In the New Testament book of James (1:5) It says that all who ask can obtain wisdom from God. It requires you to bring every thought into obedience with the will of God (2 Co 10:5)
It's maintaining wisdom, that presents the biggest challenge for Christians. We have a cunning and persistent adversary who constantly tries to sabotage our faith in spiritual wisdom (2 Co 10:3-4). He uses fear, doubt and worry to hamper you from relying on spiritual wisdom.
Another thing that keeps most people from applying wisdom are the strongholds or mental thoughts process that they had before becoming a believer.
You probably heard some of the old wives tales and old adages that sound credible, but are not based on God's principles. There is safety in numbers and a bird in the hand is better than one in the bush are just a couple of them.
However, when you are guided by wisdom you walk by faith and not by sight. You begin to react based on what you know rather than what you feel or see.
