kingdom principles for business in his presence devotional 2
In HIS Presence


Read: PSALM 127:1-5

Meditation verse:

“Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain” (Psalm 127:1).


Make it a habit of spending time in God’s presence each morning and let the Holy Spirit show you how to handle the business of the day. “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you (John 14:26). The Holy Spirit is the greatest teacher; He can show you what business decisions to take and which to avoid. He can put in your heart plans that will expand your business and individuals to reach out to. He can lead you to people who will open doors of opportunity for you. But you need to be still to hear Him.

Consistently update your skills. “If the ax is dull, and he does not sharpen its edge, then he must exert more strength; but wisdom (to sharpen the axe) helps him succeed (with less effort)” (Ecclesiastes 10:10, amp). The world of business is not static. You need to keep unlearning and relearning business skills, practices, and knowledge.

Create a reputation of excellence and consistently deliver value. “Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men. (Proverbs 22:29)

Delay gratification and reward until the business grows. Keep plowing back the profits, no matter how little. Proverbs 24:27 says “Prepare your work outside and get it ready for yourself in the field; afterwards build your house and establish a home” (Amp). Allow your business to grow before dipping your hands into its coffers for frivolous spending.

Lastly, let God be the foundation of your business. Make business decisions, plans and choices based on His word. Avoid distasteful and worldly practices. Psalm 127:1 says, unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build. Do not make the mistake of leaving God out of your business.


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.

I look forward to hearing from you.
