One of the greatest joys I get to experience in my life is watching the “epiphanies” that people experience when they realize that the very thing that makes them seem unusual, weird — or even crazy — to the people around them… is actually God’s design.
Business people in the Kingdom of God have been seen as misfits, 2nd-class citizens, or even “evil.”
Entrepreneurs — or really anyone pursuing a dream — can have an even tougher time. Obstacles, tough times, and even failures are frequent signs on the road to achieving your God-given destiny.
This is why so many second-guess themselves and question whether or not God is involved.
But God isn’t grooming people who know how to handle the “easy” stuff — He’s developing and maturing people who are seasoned problem solvers. He’s working in the lives of those who will seek out and apply the principles of His Kingdom to the challenges and the difficult stuff.
This was a recurring theme of the conversation I had several years ago with one of the modern “giants” of the faith — Dr. Henry Blackaby. I was privileged enough to be able to spend a few minutes with him talking about what he was seeing about God’s strategy for today.
My friend — don’t be surprised when your God-given dream takes you down paths fraught with problems, challenges, and difficulties. This is where your faith — and God’s Word — are proven out in a way that is demonstrable.
And know this: the dream in your heart was placed there by God. Let Him show you where He wants it to take you!
