So many followers ask what is a Biblical entrepreneur mindset. Well, you've heard me use the hashtag “Your Message Matters” for a couple of years now, and I hope that you are paying attention because you have been given a message that somebody needs to hear. And it's not just because I say this that you need to pay attention today I want to give you three biblical reasons that your message matters and how that relates to your business.
What does the Bible say about being an entrepreneur?
Jeremiah Chapter 29 verse 11 it's a verse that we hear often when we're talking about goals and aspirations, but it's because there's a huge biblical entrepreneur mindset truth in this verse.
“I know the plans I have for you plans of peace and not of evil to give you an expected end or to give you a hope and a future”
What does it mean when it says I have plans for you? It means just like we find in the Psalms that God knew you as he was forming you in your mother's womb. He already had a plan for you in the whole story of his history. That plan includes how He was going to be using you in this bigger part of his worldwide historical plan. There is a reason you are here. If you're still here that reason still exists. If we still didn't have a job to do we wouldn't still be here. There's someone out there who still needed the message that we have to give. What is your message?
What does God say about business owners?
In Isaiah 42, God shares some additional entrepreneur mindset inspiration.
“I have called you by name I've given you for a light to the Gentiles to open blind eyes to set the prisoners free.”
What is that talking about? Is it talking about that every single person on this planet going into prisons and setting people free? No, it's talking about spiritual freedom. It's talking about you bringing the truth of God's word and what God wants to do in their life to them. So, then spiritual bondage can be broken and you can make a difference. Well, how can I do that? I'm a mechanic. How can I do that? I'm a cookie maker. How can I do that? I plan parties. It doesn't matter what you do. That's just the vehicle that he's given you to be able to speak His truth into their life.
How do I get a biblical entrepreneur mindset?
Now let's look at Ecclesiastes 2:24 to see what the LORD says about work:
There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.
He says that it is good for men to eat and drink and to find enjoyment in their work. I've never heard any Biblical teacher talk about that. It is good for us to find enjoyment in our work God says it's good in another in another translation it talks about delighting in your work. He's given us this work to delight. Also, He's given it to us because he knows that something that He created us to enjoy.
When God created the world, He stood back and said it is good. He enjoyed what he made and I think that He expects us as people created in His image to also enjoy the things that He allows us to make and do in the world. So that's the third reason why your message matters because God has given it to you as a way for you to enjoy the work that He has put in your hands. This message is so important.
