How to put God FIRST in your business

  1. Pray about everything
  2. Give God honour for every single job that comes in ( Big or small )
  3. Don’t let one day go past that you have not told one of your employees, clients or suppliers that God loves them.
  4. Serve others
  5. Give generously
  6. Seek first HIS Kingdom


6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

The no.1 thing we need to do, or should of done is pray to God to ask if this business venture, idea, proposition is HIS WILL. We tend to (even me!) just jump into everything, when we get an idea, we just do it without asking God if this is His will, then, when it does not work out the first person we want to shift the blame to is God. “Maybe I did something wrong and now God is punishing me” , “Why does nothing good ever happen to me? “, “ Why God? “ , when in fact everything is OUR fault and we have only ourselves to blame, NOT GOD!

When we pray about everything and wait for God to answer before we act then we will have so much less worries in our lives and businesses. So, with EVERY job opportunity, with every new business idea, don’t be like Nike and just do it, BE LIKE JESUS, and pray to God before any decisions is made.


On the glorious splendor of Your majesty And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate. Psalm 145:5

Giving God honour for every job that comes in is one of the most pleasing things to God. And let’s be honest, if it was not for God you would not have gotten that job in. So give Him  the praise that He deserves. Never let your humbleness towards God fade away, always, always thank God for all that He has done and busy doing in your business. If you are not happy with what God has blessed your business with now, then God will not be able to bless you with bigger things. Be thankful for the small, and you will receive the big.  During the day, as stuff pops up in your head what you are thankful for, write it down and praise God for it, thank Him daily for those blessing!


We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19

The one thing every person good or bad should know on this earth, is that God loves them so much! And that sad part about all this is, is that people die daily NOT KNOWING that God loves them, it could have been just that 3 words that person had to hear not to commit suicide, to get saved in salvation. But, we choose to keep those 3 words to ourselves, the words “GOD LOVES YOU”!

God has put you as a business owner in the perfect position to encounter people who you can remind of how much God loves them, will some reject it when you tell them that? Yes, most probably, but that’s ok, you have planted that seed in them, which just needs prayer to grow inside of them. Someone might of asked God for a sign that morning and God uses us to be the vessel, to be the sign, to tell that person that God loves them.

Even if you have to put it on your email signature, just get Gods word out!  Don’t let a day pass that someone you encounter does not know how much Jesus loves them.

Be the vessel, be the sign!


God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10

If there is one person on earth that is the greatest example on this, its Jesus. Jesus did not come to earth to be worshiped or to be served, Jesus came down to earth to serve others, even those who spat in His face and crucified Him. So what makes you so important to think that people shout respect you so much that they need to serve you daily? That is definitely not a characteristic of God.

When a employee is down and the Spirit reveals this to you, go to him/her and ask them what is wrong and what YOU can do the make the situation better. Send them home for the day if need be.

Another way of serving others is by praying for them, praying for people is one of the most important ways to serve others.

If you want to be a leader in the work place, then be an example of a servant, not a boss!


Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. Proverbs 11:24

I have so many testimonies about giving generously that its unbelievable. The above verse clearly states that to those who give will be given more, but those who with holds will become poor. Why keep the money all to yourself with it’s not even yours to begin with? You have the excuse that “you’re “worked hard for that money did you? Who gave you the strength in the morning to wake up and go to work? Who gave you a healthy brain to think? Who gave you your talents? Yourself? NO, GOD DID! The Word of God also clearly states that ALL THINGS on earth belongs to GOD! So give to God what needs to be given to Him.

Pray and ask God how much you need to give to your church, and then do it. It’s not in the amount of money you give it’s about the heart you give it with. A R2 given with a grateful heart and out of obedience means much more to God then a R200 given just to receive a blessing in return. Give with a generous heart, because you LOVE God, not because you want the blessing that comes with giving.

God knows your heart, and do not let anybody else try to manipulate you when it comes to God blessing you with finances because He saw your heart and obedience.

God loves a cheerful giver!


But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33

When we put God first, we seek His Kingdom first and everything inside of it. When we seek Gods Kingdom first then ALL things will be given to us.

When we seek Him first before anything else in the morning, then all things will be given to us in His will. When you wake up, seek Him first, when you have lunch at work, seek Him first, when you going through a rough day, seek Him first, do not run to the nearest  person at work to talk about your problems, they won’t be able to solve it, ONLY God can. SO SEEK HIM FIRST BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE!

Do not YOU get in the way of YOU! Do not do all thing with your own power and understanding, because the chances you will fail is most probable 100%! Seek God first and HIS (not yours) righteousness and all things will be given to you!

LETS BE GOD SEEKING BUSINESS PEOPLE, NOT JOB SEEKERS! Because when we put God FIRST in EVERYTHING we do, then all other thing WILL fall in place!
