Forums Focus: A weekly blog to enlighten, encourage and equip Christian business leaders to lead in business using Biblical Business Principles.

Biblical Business Principles – Last week we focused on Relying on God’s Resources (His Spirit). How much do you depend upon God’s Spirit during your business day?

This week we will focus on Relying on God’s Resources (His Strength). How much do you rely on God’s strength during your business day?

For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need. Philippians 4:13 NLT This verse reminds us that God gives us strength beyond our own strength. Kind of like power assist. Power steering on a car doesn’t do anything until we turn the steering wheel. Christ strengthens us beyond our strength. Do you sense Christ strengthening you in your typical work day, or are you running on your own power?

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 NLT This verse reminds us our God promises to strengthen, help, and uphold us. The King James Version states Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. This promise indicates we should not expect God’s help if we’re going against His ways and truths. When we’re doing business by The Book, we can rely on God’s resources including His strength. When you’re running low on strength in your business, do you check to see if you’re in line with Biblical Business Principles?

Bit of Wisdom
Have you never heard or understood? Don’t you know that the LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth? He never grows faint or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to those who are tired and worn out; he offers strength to the weak. Even youths will become exhausted, and young men will give up. But those who wait on the LORD will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:28-31 NLT
