In the book of John 5:7, Jesus said „if you abide in me and my word abide in you, whatever you ask will be granted unto you.“ The only way for the promises and declaration of God the Father to be effective in our lives and in whatever we do is to abide in Christ Jesus. As Children of God the Father, we need to stay and remain connected with Christ because we cannot do anything without him. He is our strength and ability. In Deuteronomy 8:18, it is recorded that it is God that gives the power to make wealth that is while in the fifth verse of the same John chapter fifteen, Jesus said “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me, you can do nothing.” This is the foundation of prosperity and sustainable success.
Jesus, the Light of the World
Light is the most essential aspect and among the first creations of God. Every living thing needs light to survive; we need it every moment of our life to communicate, explore, navigate and learn. Practically, light illuminates, dominates, and empowers. The man strongly depends on light to strive. Jesus said in John chapter 8 verse 12 that “I am the light of the World,” He is the pure and everlasting light. When he appeared during creation (Genesis chapter one), the darkness disappeared. The same Jesus; while he walked on the surface of the earth he was the visible light to mankind and its environment as recorded in the book John 9:5 saying “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world“ declared Jesus. This is the kind of light that made the blind to see, the lame to walk, the dead to rise, the troubled to have peace, hope to the hopeless, healing to the sick, and total restoration to as many as believed in Him. Praise God! Jesus loves us so dearly that he also made us the light of this World by making us part-take in his characteristics and personality. As long as you abide in him, he will abide in you and his word will function in your life. You will note that in the book of John 8:12 that he said “He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” This is indeed awesome! As long as you follow Him, abide in him and his word dwell in you, there shall be no darkness in you and your world.
You are the Light of the World
“As many as in him” meaning every one of us that have accepted his Lordship over our life, has been made the light of this World and this also establish you as individually as the light of your World. He said in Matthew 5:14 that “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Now, that you have been made the light in you and around bringing glory unto the Father. Your light can also send away every negativity and establish divine peace in your life and in the things that you do. Light also represents joy, laughter, and health. Therefore, strive to keep your light on a very high Stand to be able to illuminate the entire surrounding and send away darkness because when light shows up darkness vanishes. Darkness is a symbol of negativity, a symbol of sin, anger, struggling, torment, pains, sickness, diseases, pestilence, evil doings, wickedness, failure depression, immoralities, and many more.
Do not be afraid of Challenges
Be genuine in whatever you do by strictly avoiding darkness and all its attributes. A very instrument of Satan is deception. He makes lies to look like truth to lead people away from their righteous course, but your light is capable of making such lies manifest. As a Christian, avoid engaging in dubious practices to succeed. That is not the character of light, and if you dare to try it out, it will end up in great fall. There are traps everywhere waiting for the Children of the Kingdom to step on it. That is the goal of the enemy to remove money from the hand of believers because he is aware that with so much money, so much damage can also be rendered in the kingdom of darkness. It is on record how several businesses run by Believers had closed up because of physical deception projected by Satan. As light, strive to always be sincere and delivered accordingly. Customer satisfaction is basic. This is the area where many failed. Every client is expecting you to fulfill your part even while they are at fault.
Be conscious of your relationship with Christ
Losing consciousness is dangerous but if you are always conscious of your personality and relationship with Christ Jesus, you will overcome all the challenges that Entrepreneurs encounter because they are part of the journey to the top neither did Jesus promises us that there would be none. He instructed us to be calm, still, bold, and courageous because they are bread that will energize us and take us to the next level. He said in John 14:1 that “let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.” No fear and no anxiety just believe and abide in him. He is the Prince of peace and has given you the peace that cannot be shattered. In addition, in verse 27 of the same book of John chapter 14, he declared: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” When challenges come let not your heart be troubled, do not be dismayed and shaken because they also make you understand that you do not have to rely on your own strength but God.
Your light will not shine except there was darkness the magnitude of the darkness will determine the intensity of the light but let your light so shine until there is no space for grayness. Greatness does not happen easily or overnight. As an Entrepreneur always expect challenges and plan ahead of time because they will certainly show up and in a different form to sway you from your course as you strive to shine in your business world but just as Jesus said; do not be disturbed, worried, or moved. Be bold, strong and remember that Jesus is the good Shepherd. Be quick to remember that He is your source and use the authority in his name to pull down every threat to your business world. In the midst of the storm, Jesus was sleeping and the disciples were gripped with fear but as soon as the Master showed up, and he declared “peace, be still!” the Bible recorded that the Storm obeyed.
Shine with Your Business
Like the one that abides and follows Christ, your light is extended to your Business, Enterprise, whatever you do, neighborhoods, and community because it is made to shine “nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” You are the Light of your world because you are connected with Christ; in the same way, your business is a light of its kind because it is connected to you. That is the reason it should succeed, dominate and glorify God the Father. It should overcome the troubles and challenges of this world because you are playing with the Kingdom’s principles. We do business with a different set of rules; not in the world’s principles but in God’s principle and that is how you can enjoy the dominant effects as light.
Always be conscious of the divine connection that you have with Christ Jesus. You have been made the light of your World so let it shine to the glory of the King and let your light so shine and manifest in your business and whatever you until according to the book of Isaiah 60:3 “the Gentiles, shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” The prosperity of your business is the prosperity of the Church. You have been made the light of your World, therefore shine, illuminate and dominate your business World.
