When you begin your journey as an entrepreneur, as you step out into the things God has called you to do (Your Purpose), there will be times when you will get distracted, discouraged and disappointed. Distracted: something that makes it difficult to think or pay attention to, Discouraged: to lose confidence or enthusiasm and Disappointment: the feeling of sadness or displeasure caused by the nonfulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations.
Walking out your purpose in business, the devil can cause you to be distracted, discouraged and disappointment as you step out. His very job is to steal, kill and destroy your life (John 10:10), to get you discouraged, sometimes you may step out and when you do, it can be different then what everyone else in your field is doing, it can sometimes cause you to be made fun of, people may not support what you’re doing because its different or you can end up alone. Don’t get discouraged because God can turn everything around for your good (Romans 8:28). Example: (The Book of Job).
Don’t get distracted by what others are doing in your field. Your job is to carry out the orders God gave you. Along the way, sometimes when you’re looking at other people’s progress, you can be less enthused about your Journey or the plan God has put in your heart. When you feel like this, it is important to Trust in God and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6) and Stay encouraged on the path God has you on.
You can sometimes be disappointed, feeling sad or displeasure caused by nonfulfillment of one’s hopes, to the point where you are on the devils team. I am here to share with you tools to add to your armor (Ephesians 6:13-18a), to continue in your Journey to accomplishing your God-given-Purpose.
