Acts 4:28. Another example where God controlled specific circumstances was with the persecution and death of Jesus. It was all part of God’s salvation plan for him to send his son on to this Earth, and for his Son to die for sinners. It was also part of God’s plan for the people to persecute Jesus and kill him.
THE NATURAL MAN'S LACK OF SPIRITUAL VALUES
Isaiah 1:3. Where there is a servant or a steward, there is also a master. Christian stewardship consists of where we are the stewards and God is the master. We are stewards over the things and resources that God has given us. As Christian stewards we do not do as we please, nor do we follow the whim or fancy of our fellow man. God is our master, and we are to act accordingly.
Proverbs 31:18. Another Biblical principle for business is to sell quality products and services. Proverbs 31:18 tells us, “She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.” Here the virtuous woman is described as having confidence in her merchandise. All businesses should be in a position where they know their product or service is good.
Luke 14:28. The Bible tells us that we need to measure our risks before we act in whatever we do. This is especially the case when it comes to planning in business. All businesses take some degree of risk to generate income. This could include risking capital to buy raw materials or plant equipment.
Hebrews 5:11. To obtain Christian maturity a Christian needs to apply themselves and be a good listener of the Gospel. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, the Bible should no longer be complicated.
John 14:17, The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. As Christians, the Holy Spirit resides in us to comfort us, to guide us, and to be the Spirit of Truth in our lives. The Holy Spirit enables us to discern what is true and what is not.
Esther 3:5. All of us know people that frustrate us. In many cases these people are a cause for anger to flare up in us. People frustrate us because they are not doing what we expect of them or they are preventing us from accomplishing what we desire. The question is should anger be our reaction to being frustrated.
Proverbs 24:12. If you are asking yourself “Why am I unhappy”, it may be because of you are in denial of God. Denying God can bring great unhappiness because you are denying your purpose and reason for living. Being in denial of God is a futile act that brings no satisfaction. If you have doubts about God, that is not a reason to deny Him.
Jeremiah 23:16. It is a natural desire to know about the future. The Bible tells us that visions can tell us about the future. The challenge is that the Bible also tells us that not all visions, dreams, and prophecies come from God, and thus all visions are not true.
