This piece is part two of the ‘What Changed Now’ Christian devotional series.
In the rallying world of decisions and the rush to get everything done quickly- some groups have distinguished themselves well with managing pressure. Today, I will be looking at entrepreneurs and how they manage change as they run their businesses. What can you learn and apply to your individual lives?
If you’re an entrepreneur, you seek change. All entrepreneurs set out to solve a problem, that is their purpose.

The agents of change today are entrepreneurs. They crave the ability to make a difference and find a solution to a problem. Similarly, the reason Jesus Christ came as prophesied many generations before was to change the future of mankind and redeem the nation of Israel. His business was Kingdom business and he stirred changes to the religious practices of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Jesus Christ is change – an everlasting hope for all those who will come to Him.
Inspired by these analogies, you should begin to look at your life’s situation differently. The unexpected changes you face are aligning you to dig deeper into your relationship with Christ for the change he wants to bring through you. There is a solution that only you have because of your identity but are you shying away from embracing the dysfunctionalities that are setting you up to discover this truth. Embrace change and its innate freedom as it sustains you. The only solution now is to plan and move forward into what’s new. How can you plan with change?
Each individual has a vision that they carry also known as purpose. Similar to the life of an entrepreneur who is focused on executing his vision despite competition – the brand of solutions is what this entrepreneur hopes will distinguish him enough and win customers. Your purpose is a solution to a gap.
Tesla’s vision is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy with electric cars, solar panels and integrated renewable energy solutions for homes, businesses and utilities.

There is a gap for you to fill, and though frustrating it might seem, the changes you are experiencing is an indication of the unsettling nearness to the destination. Refining your life around change will allow you to taper off and improve from difficult experiences. The brand Telsa though filled with mounting criticism over quality and management continues to thrive despite its constant change cycle. How would you approach your life if you could spot all the changes coming? As Christians, our anchor to rebound from change is hidden in the Word of God. Jesus told us that we would experience trouble like he did but we will not be consumed. Instead, we will continue to bear fruit because he has already done the greatest change ever – the gift of salvation and redemption of sin.
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
Living according to the precepts of truth in the living Word of God enables us to weather any change while remaining fruitful. We have something that the world does not – Jesus.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
If ye abide in me, and my works abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
The world is not more successful than the Kingdom of God. It is allowed to even have any success because of the mercies of God. How then can you be discouraged by change when you know who your anchor is?
Abide in Christ.
