My dear fellow Proverbs 31 women in Progress,
Do you want to be an entrepreneur? Then congratulations! You’ve made the good choice for your life and for your purpose.
However, before you commit to following this path, you need to ask yourself this question: do you need freedom or security in your life?
To review this question, let’s analyze the case of the Israelites when they went out of Egypt.
When the Israelites came out of Egypt…
If you remember very well, the Israelites were freed from slavery after God sent the 10 plagues to Egypt and made wonderful miracles to show them His power and His might.
However, when they were freed, they were complaining all day. They complained that Moses wanted them to die. But the Lord sent them manna everyday. He took care of them. But they were not pleased with their newfound freedom.
They remembered their life in Egypt because they didn’t know anything else. Even if they were slaves and mistreated by their Egyptian masters, they knew what they would do during the day. They knew what they would eat and drink. They knew their timetable.
God wasn’t pleased with them because He freed them and took care of them on a daily basis. But they were never satisfied. So how did God answer? He deeply regretted His actions in favor of this people. He promised Moses to make him a powerful nation. Later, He even condemned them to err in the wilderness during 40 days!
Fortunately, Moses interceded for the people of Israel and they managed to reach the Promised Land under the commandment of Joshua.
What we should learn from the Israelites
The Lord calls us to freedom. This freedom can be spiritual, but it can also be a financial freedom. If you want to be an entrepreneur like the Proverbs 31 woman, you’ll need to let the Lord work in you.
You need to learn to rely on nobody else than Him. Indeed, it can be difficult because when you have a steady income as an employee, you’ll be uncomfortable to see little to no money enter your bank account in the beginning.
However, you need to trust the Lord and your abilities. And the Lord will bless you beyond your imagination.
Today, the Lord calls you out of Egypt and to be free. He calls you to rely on Him and to claim your spiritual, moral, physical and financial freedom. But the ultimate decision belongs to you. You need to determine what you want.
Do you want freedom? Then, entrepreneuriat is for you. Do you want security? Well, stay an employee. It doesn’t mean that it’s bad. But sometimes we need to get out of our comfort zone to please the Lord. I do really think that the Lord calls us to be free at every level, including the financial one.
I let you with this Bible verse to meditate:
Stay calm, mind your own business, do your own job. You’ve heard all this from us before, but a reminder never hurts.
1 Thessalonians 4:11
