Reach for the Stars

Business people look for ways to be successful. It is an ever-present search for material gain. A driving force that is common to all.

But does business practice have to be this way?

I don’t believe so.

In the early days of ‘Work with God’, almost two decades ago, God said something very different to me. After many months of desperate struggle to find the right work ideas He gave me a profound revelation:

‘Everything you need is to be found in Christ’.

And I received this only after I had laid down my life and all my own business ideas. I became empty and He filled me with Himself, replacing my good-ideas with His God-ideas.

Alongside this came a very instructive spiritual vision. I saw myself entering Dad’s office (His Kingdom Administration Centre) and happily presenting my good idea on a piece of paper. But as I held it out for Him to see, it burnt up in His Presence. I was mortified! But then Dad, with a kind face and a twinkle in His eye, took something from His pocket and offered it to me. It was a golden nugget, representing His idea, which I grabbed with relish. I couldn’t wait to put it into practice!

Business people search constantly for satisfaction in lucrative deals and ever increasing profit margins. But there is a spiritual journey we can all take that is way beyond this notion of success, and it comes when our deepest longings are fulfilled in Christ, and nowhere else.

If you want to travel around this planet and see every country there is, that’s fine. I’m sure you’ll have a great time. But this adventure in Christ will take you to the stars.

‘I’m in touch with what is beyond your horizons.’  Jesus said.
