We all seek out the advice of others, especially when running a business. Sometimes this is due to our own indecisiveness or maybe our lack of faith in our own ideas and abilities. Whatever the reason, as a Christian business owner, you may at one time or another seek the advice of a professional business coach.
The downside is that business coaches can be an added expense that you may not be able to afford. However, Christian business owners have a much better alternative which is to allow God to be your business coach.
God is all knowing and all powerful and is every where at once, so why would we ever doubt that He would be able to solve our business issues and problems or be able to guide us properly in our business decisions. He is the ultimate coach and we should approach God first with all our business needs. After all, He knows us and our business better than we know ourselves.
With God, there are no coaching fees, it is merely a matter of prayer. And even better, God is available to us anytime we want, literally twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. There is no making an appointment or having to play phone or email tag.
This should make it even more appealing for us to go to God as our Christian business coach. Do we not all seek out less hassle and an easier way of handling our tough business decisions? Plus, God can see the bigger picture. He knows what is around the next corner. Even the best of business coaches out there today do not have that ability. And of course, unlike a human business coach, God as our loving father will always work out all things for our good, although maybe not in the way we expect.
So, the next time you are considering hiring a business coach, consider allowing God to be your coach instead. You will not be disappointed and you’ll likely be more enlightened than you would have been if you had pay for one of the best and most expensive coaches out there today.
In the end, you will be glad you spent the time with God to invest in your Christian business, because that is really what God desires. To spend time with us and guide us in all our decisions. So, join the club of those successful business owners who have a business coach and hire God as your Christian business coach today. He’s just a prayer away and He won’t let you down!
