Your Business Vision Plays a Part in God's Vision

Whether you recently started a new business or you’ve had your own business for a while, vision plays a key role.

Regardless of where you fall on the small business timeline, all business owners have had to ask themselves, “What is my business vision?

At some point along the way, you created a mental image of what you wanted your business to be based on your goals and aspirations–your vision. And as a Christian business owner, its likely that your relationship with God had an impact on the vision for your business, Christian-oriented or not.

God-Given Business Vision

The things we are passionate about are not an accident. Psalm 139:13 says, “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.” God, the Author of Creativity, intricately created each of us. This not only includes our physical features, but also our emotions, our deepest desires, our visions.

The vision you have for your business, the one that your business is founded on, was planted in you by God. And He has a purpose for you and your business.

He divinely chooses to use each of us in His vision to further His Kingdom, bring Him glory and make His Name known.

Your Vision is Part of His Vision

We won’t know or understand every step of His plan, but He gives us to the opportunity to take part. In fact, Jesus’ parting words to His disciples were, “Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation (Mark 16:15).

Our business lives do not have to be and should not be separate from our spiritual lives. Jesus commands us to proclaim the Gospel, and our businesses are God-given ventures, through which we have the opportunity to glorify Him.

The vision that He gave you for your business is more than a vision. It’s an opportunity–a chance to play a role in God’s vision of furthering His Glory and His Name.

Owning a business gives us a great platform to display Christ. Take a step back, look at your business vision and ask yourself how God is being glorified through it.
