Faith in Business
written by Torrie Slaughter
Faith is an essential aspect of a Christian’s life. It is what allows us to believe in Jesus and trust that He is the Son of God, who died for our sins and rose from the dead. As we journey through life, there may be times when our faith is tested, and we may find ourselves struggling to believe. However, there are ways we can increase our faith in Jesus.
The first step to increasing our faith is by spending time with God. This can be achieved by reading and studying the Bible, attending church, and engaging in prayer. The more we engage with God, the more we will understand His character and nature, which will help us to trust Him more.
Another way to increase our faith is by surrounding ourselves with people who are also committed to Christ. Being part of a Christian community can provide encouragement, support, and accountability. Fellowship with other believers can also help us to grow in our understanding of God’s Word and provide a safe environment to ask questions and receive guidance.
We can also increase our faith by choosing to obey God’s commands. As we obey God, we learn to trust Him more and develop a deeper relationship with Him. Through obedience, we learn to surrender our will and trust that God’s plan for our lives is far better than anything we could plan for ourselves.
We must also learn to surrender our fears and doubts to God. Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts, we should replace them with positive ones that focus on God’s promises. By doing so, we shift our focus from our circumstances to God’s power and provision, which increases our faith in Him.
Finally, we can increase our faith by reflecting on God’s past faithfulness in our lives. When we look back at the ways God has provided for us, protected us, and guided us, we are reminded of His love and faithfulness. This encourages us to trust Him more in the present and future.
In conclusion, increasing our faith in Jesus requires intentional effort and a desire to grow in our relationship with Him. By spending time with God, surrounding ourselves with other believers, obeying His commands, surrendering our fears and doubts, and reflecting on His past faithfulness, we can deepen our faith in Him and experience the fullness of His love and grace.
As an entrepreneur, managing various outlets such as websites, social media platforms, podcasts, emails, and consulting services can be overwhelming, causing me to lose sight of God. It’s easy to get swamped with never-ending work, leaving me wondering where my faith is. Although I may not finish everything on my daily to-do list and have to explain my schedule to those who need help understanding my business, I must rely on the Lord.
My faith shows up in small moments when I can’t do it alone, and God provides me with strength or directs me to the right person. I remind myself that God is present and can calm my doubts. Reading God’s Word taught me how I allow others to control my reactions. However, as a believer in Christ, I must remain calm in stressful situations, knowing God has a plan. I must rely on His almighty and powerful presence and not lose sight of Him. I pray that you will trust God to give you peace amidst the chaos in whatever you do, whether in business, family, church, or school.
