There will be many times in our lives when we have to make decisions. The goal of anyone who wants grace to cover their lives, is to always be in communication with God for every area of their lives. This means inviting God to lead you in everything that you do. Acknowledging God in all our ways and He will direct our path, right?

But, what happens when what you see doesn’t look like what God said? Let’s look at it as it pertains to entrepreneurship. What about when the product or service that you provide to clients is not turning over a big enough return? You’re doing what God said and you’re not satisfied with the outcome.

Do you help God out? When is it okay to do something that you think will help steer the situation in the right direction? We have so many examples of people in the Word of God that helped God out, right? I’m sure you can think of a few. Remember Abraham?

I recently have been toying with the idea of adding another stream of income in my business that will cause recurring revenue. This situation actually birthed this writing that you are reading now. My circumstances naturally all pointed toward this being a good idea, especially with a couple projects that failed through all at once. Then, as if the heavens opened and placed it in my lap, an opportunity presented itself.

Could this opportunity be God saying yes? He knows my situation, right? Plus, it lines up naturally with what I am in need of. If you’re anything like me, you can talk yourself into all the reasons why this would fit. But, my heart is to be in the will of God, so I’m not okay with things lining up naturally. Also, what I didn’t consider initially is what God said to me already. God in His grace to make sure His daughter (that would be me) doesn’t stumble in decision making, slapped me with this verse.

2 Corinthians 4:18
Because we don’t focus our attention on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but the unseen realm is eternal.

In a series of events that only God could orchestrate, I was gently led back to what God highlighted for me earlier this year. FOCUS ON THE UNSEEN 🤯. In my haste to line up things naturally, I totally forgot about the most important part of alignment when it comes to both BEING STILL and TAKING GODLY ACTION. The key is to focus on what you can’t see. In short, the UNSEEN is the spirit realm. This is made manifest to you based on what God has already put in your heart and what He has already spoken to you.

In my case, God had given me this assignment, Wisdom in Business, and another assignment called Launch with Grace. If I take the option of the other stream of income, it would limit me from doing what God has already instructed me to do. Regardless of what it looks like naturally, I have to remember what God has already spoken. The answer was already given. Here is the other thing that God spoke to me. You may have heard me share this before and it looks like an equation:

ROO > ROI

Return on Obedience is GREATER THAN Return on Investment

That “something” that God told us to do is greater than anything that presents itself naturally that you could benefit from now.

This is why the Scriptures say:

1 Corinthians 2:9 TPT
Things never discovered or heard of before, things beyond our ability to imagine—these are the many things God has in store for all his lovers.

I encourage you to choose wisdom in taking Godly action. Godly action most often doesn’t make sense naturally. If you are currently in a crossroads where you are needing to make a decision and are unsure what to do, here are a few things to consider:

  1. Ask yourself if God has already answered this for you.
  2. Consider what God has already told you about the direction that you are wanting to go.
  3. Is it aligned with what God has mandated you to do?
  4. Does it fit peacefully in the season that you are in?
  5. Can you enter in agreement with the choice you are considering and NOT neglect the things that God instructed you to steward over?
  6. Will it take away from your main priorities in this season?
    7. Seek counsel from a wise trusted advisor.

If I can agree with you in prayer about anything, please comment below.

Committed to your growth in Godly wisdom.
