Building a 'Solid Foundation' based on God's plans, promises, and purpose for your life, while serving the people that God aligns you with to serve.
Building a Kingdom Business is expressed in many scriptures. One in particular says, "Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10
When you establish a Kingdom Business a few things happen.
First you are gifted with a vision and a gift that no one can do but you, like you do, (your purpose).
Then you pray over that gift and ask God to direct your steps and provide you with a plan for the business that God gave you the vision to start.
You then align your prayer with God's plan (write it down), and his promises. God's promises are found throughout the bible and are beneficial to our lives every step of the way.
Once you have prayed and studied to learn what God's promises are for yourself, you are then ready to start planning and preparing to 'Serve' the clients that God will bless you with, with your God given gift.
Pray over everything! From becoming legal and legit, your equipment, office or building space, and the clients that will be attracted to you. Then pray for peace of mind, wisdom, understand and the provision (finances) that you will need as you build the inner depths of your business. Furthermore, pray over the income that you will earn in return for utilizing your gift in the way that God wants you too.
Remember that in this area of serving and receiving while using our gifts, God wants us to be "faithful stewards." In the bible it says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24/since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
Lastly, once you start generating income from the gift you have and the clients that God blessed you with, be sure to tithe your first fruits (the first 10% of your income). Please study, learn, and understand this for yourself, or ask in prayer to be led to the proper person for clarity and guidance.
Here are 3 Bliss Tips of what to include in your prayers, while building a kingdom business:
1. Pray for clarity on God's perspective, proper preparation, plans & processes.
Read: Psalm 5:3 NIV " In the morning LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my request before you and wait expectantly.
2. Pray to be a 'doer' of his word. Once you have prayed and received your answer, become a doer of what God has told you to do. Write down what God told you, write down what you are going to do, commit to it, work on it as time allows and take joyful action.
Read: James 1: 22-25
" 22/ Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23/ Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24/ and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25/ But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
3. Pray for the right mindset that keeps your eye on the goal. Think of the cars on the freeway with three lanes and you're in the middle moving toward your destination of new joys, fun, wealth, abundance, and overflow.
In that middle lane you cannot look to the left, nor to the right. You have to look straight ahead. If you look to either side you may start to compare your speed with other vehicles and lose your momentum and slow down, or worse yet, get a $481 speeding ticket. lol
Then, when you look to the left or right instead of straight ahead like God told you to, you may end up in one of those lanes and it will take you in a different path than the one your lane was in. (See where this is going)? Stay in your lane. God put you on that path for a reason. Once you start doing things "your way," you may have to go down valleys, just to get to the peak. Again, stay in your lane. xoxo
